Twins serve up doubles success!
Andrew and Ryan Smith (16) followed in the footsteps of Dave Jones and Andrew McMorran (2016 winners) by winning the Hillside Floodlight Tournament open to Men Doubles pairs who play in Division 4 or lower of the Southport and District League.
Beating strong pairs in both the group stages and the semi-final, they came up against home pairing of Hillside again in the final.
Although the opposition put up a more spirited performance than they had first time around the Formby Holy Trinity pair came through in straight sets.
Bring on the tennis season!
Junior club night returns.
All four courts were in use this evening for the Club's first Junior Club Night!
Whilst table tennis and the Wii were available in the clubhouse, as well as refreshments, the players enjoyed the sunshine and mixed in with various singles and doubles matches.
Junior Club Night is open to all junior members so please come along and help the organisers provide a format that suits all.
You can let them know if you are interested in playing junior matches and ask for help with certain troublesome shots or tactical play. As well as this there will be a variety of fun tennis mini-games played during the evening too!
Hope to see you next week.
Mini-tennis resumes for 2017 season!
We're back! Some 20 aspiring Murrays or Kontas turned out in glorious sunshine for Formby Holy Trinity's opening season mini-tennis session. The old team of Alan, Stuart, Jason, Jan, Fran and Gill were on hand both on court and in the kitchen and as none of the children wanted to go home at the end the adults deemed it a great success. They, on the other hand, were all desperate for a lie down.
We will be on court again next Sunday 12pm to 1 pm, weather permitting, but not on Easter Sunday. Any queries please contact the Membership Secretary Gill on 01704 878121.
