Funday 2015

CTC held it’s first Tennis Fun-day organised by coach Matthew Barton in September 2015. The day involved 4 mixed teams that had everyone competing for points through competitive doubles matches to participating in a range of tennis skills events : lobbing balls in to the bucket; smashes to knock over tin cans; volleying for points etc.
A closely contested tournament ensured that the winners received the appropriate bottles to celebrate! The sun was shining and the day ended with a very social and tasty BBQ prepared by Steve Barton. Due to its overwhelming success the club plans to repeat the day in 2016.
