Autumn 2018: Alex Picot Trust Ladies Team Tennis
The second session of the 2018 Alex Picot Trust Ladies Team Tennis Series came to a conclusion last night with the closest set of matches seen over the ten weeks of the league.
It also saw the first defeat of the eventual champions, by the runners-up, but the margin of their lead was such that they could not be caught overall.
Ladies Team Captain Karen Barnes presented the prizes to the winners, runners up and “wooden spoonists”, the latter being the most closely contested!
From July to October over 50 players, making up 6 teams, took part in weekly matches, with 30 of them attending the presentations and ensuing meal.
A big thank you to Alex Picot and Derek Rhodes for their continued support of this great event.
1st – Team E (Zoe Wauton) plus 154
2nd – Team F (Jo Chaplin) plus 45
3rd – Team D (Sue Holland) minus 2
4th – Team C (Maureen Corrigan) minus 62
5th – Team A (Fiona Picot) minus 64
6th – Team B (Marj Rimeur) minus 71
Team E comprised – Siobhan Cadby, Lee Falle, Pat Pascual, Patrice Romeril, Neera Watts and Zoe Wauton

14-16 September: Pop Up and Open Day
The Caesarean Tennis Club hosted two Pop Up events on Friday and Saturday in Liberation Square followed by an Open Day at the Club on Sunday morning. We benefited from the amazing summer weather and received much interest in our Club from families and individuals.
It was very encouraging to see how many people followed up by coming to the Open Day on Sunday. We saw a number of children and adults getting on court and “giving it a go”, meeting with the coaches and learning what the Club has to offer.
A huge “thank you” must go out to the ladies who provided so many delicious cakes which was served with tea and coffee during the Open Day morning. Not forgetting of course all the members who supported both events in many forms – coaching / general playing / answering questions / taking photographs and much more.
These photos will give a good idea of the great atmosphere which prevailed all Sunday morning.
With an active interest in becoming members, we expect to see some new faces around the Club very soon! Please make them welcome.
