Triumph in Joseph Lord Cup for Formby Holy Trinity’s 3rd Team!
Friday 21st July 2017
Formby Holy Trinity Third Team finished their season with a nail-biting finish to win the Joseph Lord Cup Final. With the score standing at 2 all, Luke and Andrew came from a set down to win! A brilliant display of hard hitting from Luke with his new racquet, and experienced Andrew displaying finesse against a much younger opposition.

Jan, Mrs Singles, continued her unbeaten run; Chantal and Jeanette proved too strong in the Ladies Doubles but Andrew; Ryan and Gill found their opponents were the heavy guns. Thanks also to Christine who stepped in to play in the semi-final and Matt who supported Gill in an earlier mixed.

Lastly a big thank you to Dave Clifford, in his role as League Representative and host from Sphynx who provided a delicious cream tea. The victorious team then retired to the Richmond Pub to celebrate until they were told to quieten down as the participants in a music quiz could not hear the questions!

Sunday 9th July 2017
To celebrate the middle Sunday of Wimbledon, and in honour of the skills and professionalism of the 'ball kids', our juniors took part in an LTA initiative in conjunction with Benenden Tennis Festivals.
Nearly 30 youngsters were involved in games and novelty drills delivered by an experienced and dedicated coach, Joe Hagan, from Inspire2coach. Thank you to the chefs, Richard and Fran, Yvonne, Caroline and Mel in the kitchen and Olly and Carol who helped on court.
Juniors enjoying the fun as part of the Benenden Tennis Festival!
The weather was glorious and for the last event the children challenged their parents to games such as 'get out of goal' and 'messy beds'. Of course the children won delighted to shout 'off' to anyone who missed the ball.
They went home several hours later with certificates, prizes and momentoes of a brilliant afternoon. We hope you all enjoyed the event and we will be continuing our normal Sunday morning sessions next week. From the Team - Stuart, Alan, Gill and Jan.
