Taney Lawn Tennis Club

Dear Members

As I write, Taney Parish Lawn Tennis Club is having a super summer - the weather didn’t really warm up until mid-June but since then we have enjoyed many days and evenings of tennis. The work that was done on the courts in March and April - scarifying, rolling and weeding - has made a huge difference this season. Not quite Wimbledon standard yet but many more true bounces than last season! We unfortunately have a young fox who loves to dig and has been digging holes on the courts which we have to keep filing in!! Just one of the problems with grass courts but the advantages outweigh these because the grass is much more forgiving on the body, legs, hips, etc!!

In May and June we once again ran a very successful tennis coaching programme for 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th classes at Taney National school. We coached 56 juveniles and had a waiting list of over 20. We finished up with a tournament for each of the coaching days. We never cease to be amazed at how the children progress during the programme and how much they enjoy playing tennis with their friends. We wish all the 6th class students who are now going on to secondary school all the very best.

Please contact me if you would like any information on the club or are thinking of joining perhaps next year - we usually open the club on the first Saturday in May.
