I believe the weather put somewhat of a dampener on tennis this week.  Hopefully the weather will be better next week for some social tennis and our coaching clinic being run from Tuesday to Friday by Lauire Geist.


We welcome Laurie back to Norfolk this week for some intensive tennis coaching sessions.  Please be on time for your session throughout the week.  Lessons have been advertised on the Chery Tennis Club Face book page for the last term and we thank all who have taken advantage of this opportunity.  We hope the weather is fine to get out on the court.


Club Membership is due.  All squad children need to be a member of the club and we encourage our night comp players to sign up as it does work out cheaper if you are playing regularly to be a member.  This also allows you to participate in club champs also.


Thursday night Social tennis is the night for you if you want a hit but no commitment.
