Congleton Lawn Tennis Club
The club’s first tournament of 2020 took place on Saturday.
The original attempt to stage the February fun tournament was hit by the impact of Storm Dennis, but it was all systems ago two weeks later.
Organiser Lindsay Newton presided over the tournament, which was sponsored by Sweetie Pix.
The competitors had fun as they tried to outwit the windy conditions, but there was no rain.
The two winners of the event were Kim Bennett and Richard Shipton. They were presented with their sweet bombs courtesy of the sponsors.
In team tennis, the spring leagues continue. Congleton A beat Cuddington A 5.5-2.5, while Congleton B beat Nantwich B 5-3. Congleton C went down to a narrow 3.5-4.5 loss against Holmes Chapel A.
The club continues to attract new sponsors for the season and has now partnered with Barre Sculpt, based just opposite the club on Martin’s Court. It has agreed to sponsor the summer U3A tournament and the two winners will each receive a voucher for a free six-week pilates course. The club thanked them for “their generous offer”.
The club’s annual meeting will be held on Monday, 9th March in the clubhouse at 8pm. All members are welcome to attend to hear about the committee’s plans for 2020 and to have their say on these plans.
Coffee morning tennis sessions take place on Mondays and Thursdays each week with an hour of light coaching and doubles play followed by coffee and cake in the clubhouse. The sessions start at 11am.
