Or buy them some KTC branded clothing - available online from iPROSPORTS - www.iprosports.co.uk/club-zone/knutsford-tennis-club/, but be quick - Dec 12th is the last order date for Christmas.
Our new courts are in full operation now and are fantastic !!! The Handicap Tournament on Saturday November 14th will be our first big event on the new courts so even if you can’t play on the day (sign up with Mark), pop down for some tea and cake.
We're planning a media launch on Tuesday 24th November that will coincide with Club Night, so our visitors can see the courts getting used (weather permitting!). So please put the date in your diaries and hopefully we can get some play and show off our club to the local community. We may even have a chairmen’s 4 on the night, so Sally, Steve and Ken be warned.!!
We are now able to offer a range of KTC branded clothing through a company called IPROSPORTS. The cost of the clothing is very competitive and the tennis club receives a small percentage of the price to go towards our court refurbishment fund. The attached link will take you straight to the KTC section of the Iprosports website. http://www.iprosports.co.uk/club-zone/knutsford-tennis-club/
We had a visit on Tuesday from the Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne who came to see how the IF grant is being spent and to meet Mark and the kids on his camp. There were security checks beforehand and a small cavalcade of heavy 4 wheel drives. He had a good chat to everybody and was with us for about 20 minutes. There were lots of photos and there should be a story in the Knutsford Guardian next week, giving good PR for the club.
Knutsford Little Theatre are hosting a preview night to support our tennis court fund. Full details are attached.
A great time had by all at the Pimms and Strawberries club night tonight, which despite the rain attracted a record turn out. See photos of the evening and Debs' amazing outfit HERE.
Congratulations to Debs who won the 'best dressed' prize for her Serena Williams look alike !!
