Four up-and-coming players from our club were presented with top accolades at this year’s TennisOxfordshire Junior Awards. The ceremony, which took place at Abingdon and Witney College on Friday 3rd November, recognised outstanding sporting talent from across the county.
Esme Paddick (12), Callum West (14), Lucy Willoughby (9) and Ronan Goss (15) each took home gold in their respective categories; Club Coach’s Player (girl), Club Coach’s Player (boy), Most Improved Junior Player (girl) and Most Improved Junior Player (boy). With more than 50 entries, taking home gold awards clearly demonstrated each player’s passion, commitment and development.
As the only club in the county taking home gold awards in each category, I’m so proud of Esme, Callum, Lucy and Ronan. Each player clearly demonstrated their passion, enthusiasm, commitment and talent to the judges. The results not only showcase individual performance, but also demonstrate BLTC as one of the county’s leading clubs.
A quick update on the recent end of season get together. Despite the cold we had 10 players and 5 watchers. It was cold but fine and the chat and food was plentiful.A total of £65.54 was collected/donated on the day, so many thanks to all.
The two top players nominated the charities for the receipt of the monies collected:
Sue - Neuroblastoma UKPaul - The Hummingbird CentreWe have made the amount up to £40 for each charity from Veterans funds (so total to be donated is £80).We hope to run another such event at the start of the season, either at the end of April or the beginning of May.
Thanks to all for the support of this event.
Pam, Alan, and Nick
I would like to start off by saying a massive thank you to Grant Munday and Nick Adams, for organising a fantastic club tournament. They put in a tremendous amount of effort to keep everyone informed of events and updated on matches to play.
The tournament could not have been so successful without the hard work of each and every player that entered. Let's hope we can do the same next year!
Finally, thank you to everyone who came down to support the finals day, despite it being a bit damp and chilly!
Thankyou to all that took part in the summer Sir Ken Ferriman Jubilee Cup today. As always some amazing games of tennis, terrific food and great company.
Many congratulations to all that took part and to our winners Jonathan Davies and Ben Jerham.
The quiz night, which took place on the 15th April 2017 in the bowls club, was a great success! Somewhere in the region of 60 members turned up to take part. The quiz was put together by Kevin Peake who put a lot of effort into creating a very varied and entertaining quiz. It even included a Krypton Factor style observation round and a music round featuring live music provided by Gordon dunn.
