Club News Round-Up!
A Busy Summer
Just under 200 children attended the summer holidays’ courses which were run for children aged 3 to 18. At the end of the holidays the club tournaments were played and the photo below shows the children who played in the 8&Unders.
The 2nd best club in the County
A big thanks goes to Joe Van Diepen, one of the coaches, who organised all 65 matches in the Leicestershire Summer leagues, and to the parents who supported their children. It was another very successful season with over 80 children playing and five teams coming first, four teams coming second and four teams coming third in their groups. Each year the ‘Leicestershire Team of the Year Award’ is given to the club with the highest number of 1st and 2nd positions. Kibworth Tennis Club came joint 2nd which is a great achievement.
