There was fun and frolics at the launch of the sponsorship arrangement with Isabel’s Fashion House on Antrobus Street.
The shop is the sponsor of the 2020 ladies’ singles tournament and the winner of the event will receive a £25 voucher to spend in store. The club thanked Isabel’s Fashion House for its support and asked its members “to support those who support the club, to work together to promote the local Congleton community”.
There are a few tournaments still in need of a sponsor for 2020 — any businesses interested in supporting the club can call Andrew Giltrap on 07852 172 429.
Thanks went to Ayres Health, which has renewed its partnership for 2020. Club members can receive 10% off all services at the podiatrist which is based on Lion Street. Call 01260 408514 for further details.
