Racquet Director’s Diary
Joe Salisbury Evening
On Saturday 8th February the Club hosted an evening to celebrate Member Joe Salisbury’s success at the Australian Open where he won the Men’s Doubles with his partner Rajeev Ram. It was great to see Joe back at the Club where his tennis journey started all those years ago and be able to share his success with his family, friends and Members. The Q&A with Paul Mendelson was hugely entertaining, and Joe provided a great insight into his experience of winning a grand slam. I’m sure there are more to come … Joe and Rajeev will be playing in this year’s GANT Championships which will be held at the Club on 25th – 27th June. Members priority booking early March. More information will be available shortly.
We will soon be coordinating the entry forms for the annual club tennis championships. The Club Championships are a major highlight of the Club’s annual calendar and it would be great to see many players in the draws. These tournaments are an ideal opportunity to play a match against someone you would not normally compete against and I would encourage all tennis Members to give it a go! The finals will be played on the GANT Championship courts and there will be a barbecue, food and drinks served throughout the day so put the date in your diaries. Finals Day is Sunday 28th June.
