Wiltshire Junior Closed Tournament at Salisbury  August 21st to 26th





Pewsey Tennis Club Mixed Open Tournament, Sunday 22nd May in aid of National Autistic Society   On a lovely warm May morning 12 pairs contested this annual tournament and riased a fantastic £235 for the NAS after school clubs in Wiltshire.  

Two groups of six pairs played full set with game point on deuce and Etan Gunton (last year’s winner) and Alexa Rutter won Group 1 and Malcolm Drinnan and Clare Bamforth won Group 2.   The final whilst keenly contested was fairly one sided with Ethan and Alexa emerging victorious by 6-1.

Lis Donaldson once again organised the tournament for which all entrants were grateful and warmly applauded.  Chairman, Colin Gratton, creator of the tournament was amazed at the funds raised, spoke of his appreciation and then presented the prizes and cup.  Hopefully Pewsey can build on having a home pair in the final and actually with the tournament next year.


BOB HARRIS QUIZ NIGHT  was held on Saturday 16th January with thanks to Dave Major for organising - this year we held this fun evening together with Kennet Badminton Club . Over 70 people attended and PTC received £234 as its share of the profit on the evening .
