WELCOME

I would like to extend a warm welcome to existing and potential new or returning members to Pewsey Tennis Club and trust that you will all have an enjoyable tennis season.  Our club remains one of the best in Wiltshire with superb facilities that we maintain to high standards. The lines on Courts 1&2 will be re-painted in the Spring and Court 3 is likely to be power-washed. We also plan to re-surface Courts 4&5 in August.
  
The new summer league season commences on Monday 27th April and practise sessions will commence in late March. We would really like to see more Ladies putting their names forward to play competitively. I would like to thank in advance our respective Mens/Ladies/Mixed Club Captains, Nick Hewens, Marijke Craig and Paul Coxon for all their hard work alongside Matthew Popham, our Match Secretary and all team captains – have a great season!!


Enjoy your tennis,
 
Colin Gratton

CHAIRMAN'S REPORT OF THE CLUB FANCY DRESS ROLL-UP AND SUMMER BBQ   28TH JUNE 

Despite inclement weather initially, club members turned up in various sartorial guises for the Club's Fancy Dress Roll-up. We had Keith & Amanda as newly weds (which they are!!)  Two Fred Perry's (Colin & Toby), one shoer one tall. Frew MacMillan ( Mathhew), Heidi ( Judith) and the Super Marios ( David & Issac) who were voted the best in fancy dress ! Carlos turned up, forgot it was fancy dress but in a blink of an eye we transormed him into Zorro ( no sword thank  goodness)  Paula as Tinkerbell(pink tutu) spread her magic fairy dust everywhere and it even helped some of us to play better!!!  Peter as a cricket umpire ensured fair play and Chrisitian played his usual fast and furious game but he was wearing the wrong head band, Pat Cash was more black and one spots I think!!  Lis, as an ageing Wimbledon hippie organised the tournament with gusto and the winners by the slimmest of margins were Keith and Paula – congratulations!!   

Nigel , our local butcher provided a sumptious BBQ and left with a good contribution for his chosen charity.  Many thanks  for introducing a different format and here's to next year, must get my Dunlop Matchplay Fort re-strung in time!!!

CHAIRMAN'S REPORT OF THE CLUB'S ANNUAL MIXED OPEN  TOURNAMENT IN AID OF THE NATIONAL AUTISTIC SOCIETY HELD ON SUNDAY 24TH MAY

Blessed with reasonable weather the annual Mixed Open tournament saw entertaining tennis from the thirteen pairs who entered. Quality of tennis was high and a competitive final between Louise Crawford/Ethan Gunton ( Purton) and Malcolm Drinnan/Paula Tailby ( Pewsey) saw the Purton pair win comfortably 6-0. For Louise it was her thrid consecutive final and she is now a double winner and 'trophy engraver par excellence'. Our thanks to Lis Donaldson for organising a wonderful tournament and to all players who helped raise £160 for the NAS. Chirman Colin Gratton confirmed these funds will go to after school clubs for autistic children in Wiltshire, a worthy cause.
