New International  court at Devonshire Park!


It's been  amazing to  watch  the  creation  of  the  new high  spec court being laid  by  FINETURF this  Autumn.  Ten  layers of  soil caringly laid, ready  for  the  seed.  

I  can't wait  to  see the  grass.... and  I  am  even  more excited  to   be able  to  play  on it !!!



My  buys are back  in town!

Just great for  me to  see a return  of....

Wiltshire  over 35'sMen  to  Eastbourne....particularly  special  for  me having coached  them  as young boys learning this  great game... in fact,  the  over 35 event  is  like  turning back  the  clock twenty  years,  with  so  many  faces to  recall, Phillip  Cliff  now playing for  Surrey, Jonathan  Kains playing for  Avon, Paul  Martine  as strong as ever playiing for  Warwick... and  so  it  goes on... Great to   see Mandy  Wainwright  playing in the  ladies , Lizzie  Jellfs, Imogen Wyatt, and  so  many   more,  but  the    Queen  of  the  court for  me was Carol  Smith from Avon   ... my  old  doubles  partner from Lansdown  Tennis  Club  in Bath ,  winning all  her singles matches at the  age of  60  !! How wonderful  is  that !! 

Thank  You  Simon and  John for  entertaining me yet again !!!
