Great British Tennis Weekend

Posted by Angharad Harris on 2 June 2019

Saturday 18th May saw GSTC open its doors to members and non-members from around South Cambridgeshire. Coaches, committee and members assembled to welcome new players and answer questions. With grey clouds looming and a history of poorly-attended open days, no one was quite sure what to expect.

On the dot of 12:30, the weather smiled on us with some glorious sunny-spells and we were delighted to welcome a number of non-members of all ages. Younger visitors were encouraged to play mini tennis with their parents and the support of committee members, while adult visitors enjoyed several games of doubles with other members, including our Chairman James Diver.


But the day really kicked off when the barbecue was lit – the smell of burgers and sausages wafted over the courts and soon everyone was enjoying lunch together outside the clubhouse. It does have to be said, though, that by far the most amusing moment of the day was when Mel Kirwan, our tournament secretary, tried to teach some of our more established members to juggle…


The committee would like to thank everyone that supported the day by turning up or inviting your non-playing friends along to experience club membership.
