Fantastic weather contributed to the success and enjoyment of Downend & Fishponds LTC Summer BBQ held on 21st July. Almost 100 people turned out for an afternoon of mini-tennis, speed serves and generally having a good time. Juniors Finlay and Mackenzie Kitching, and Alice and Ben Brown, raised over £100 between them on their Sweet and Cake Stalls as part of the Junior (Fund-raising) Challenge.
The club is celebrating a successful season in the Avon Summer League. Three of the five Men’s Teams came second in their divisions and so gained promotion for next season as did the Ladies 1st team. The other Men’s teams and the Ladies 2nd team remain in the same divisions as this year.
With three teams entered in the Summer Mixed League the club are looking forward to a further 10 weeks of enjoyable tennis and hopefully more promotions!
Meanwhile, junior Maria Budin is being very successful in European competitions and is currently ranked 92nd in Europe for U14 girls age group.
During the Summer Holidays the club will be running two Tennis Fun Days each week for 5 to 11year-olds from 9.30am – 3pm at £15 for members and £20 for non-members. See our website www.downenedandfishpondsltc.co.uk or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
