BEAUTIFUL EARLY AUTUMN weather greeted the small number of British Games Club members participating in the first playing session of the new 2018/2019 tennis season.
Playing numbers will swell as the month progresses as more of our swallow members return to the island ready to join in what promises to be a busy programme of tournaments and general playing sessions.
Members will need to get into their playing stride quickly, with the first in-house tournament scheduled for November 13, the traditional Angels and Bandits team event. It will be quickly followed on November 25 by the first inter-club tournament of the new season when BGC takes on Tony’s International team.
The tennis section meets all the year round, on two days a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays, between October and April but on Tuesdays only during the quieter summer months. Playing sessions run from 10am-1pm, though these times are occasionally varied during particularly busy times.
The section operates under the umbrella of the British Games Club but its ranks are swelled by players of many nationalities, including Spanish, German, Italian, Austrian, Canadian, Norwegian, Finnish, all bought together by their love for the game.
For more information about the section, contact captain Maxine Self on 619 370 597 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
