Ian’s Sunday Service – 14th April 19
The winners of the fantastic hand crafted Oak Easter Eggs were Lynn O’Dell and Steve Smith who won Ian’s Sunday Service at the Avenue Tennis Club on Sunday morning the 14th April. Ian’s Sunday Service is a fun, mixed doubles tennis competiion which sees all the players play with a different partner for every match of four service games, which over the two hours of play, generally means that players get to play with everyone at least once and with Ian’s scoring algorithm means that there is almost always a new winner of his hand crafted wood turnings. All are welcome to come along and join in, no need to be a member of the club, although there is a small donation to play which goes to a charity supporting research in Prostrate Cancer.
The club will play host to Junior County Matches over the May Bank holiday weekend where some great tennis will be played. Coach Vinny Duddy said some of these kids are fantastic and the standard of play and competition is very high, not a bad way to spend a few hours watching some sport and perhaps enjoying the facilities and bar at the Avenue Tennis Club.
