Kibworth Tennis had another very good season with 4 teams finishing 1st in their divisions, 6 teams finishing 2nd, 3 teams finishing 3rd and 3 teams finishing 4th.
New Year, New Kit, New Sponsorship!
There is a new club kit for 2018 which is available to children attending the tennis coaching sessions at the club. The photo above shows some of the mini tennis players wearing the new kit. The cost of the kit has been reduced due to the generous sponsorship contribution from Fox Country Properties who now sponsor both the shirts and the hoodies.
