Saturday 4th May was the planned opening of Broxbourne’s grass courts, but unfortunately the intermittent hail showers meant that they could not be used.

However the weather did not manage to dampen the competitive spirits of tennis members. Thanks to Andy for organising this summer’s first American Tournament. A popular format that enables plenty of partner swapping throughout the afternoon! We not only had a great afternoon’s tennis but were served a tea including strawberries and cream and the day was rounded off by our experienced bartender, Ian, serving beers, wine and Pimms.

It was a great day, thoroughly enjoyed by everyone and we look forward to the next American Tournament on Saturday, 1st June. Hopefully we will all get onto the grass very soon as the weather improves.
