Due to continuing C19 restrictions, entry will be via a WhatsApp group entitled Monday Morning Mix-in.
Margaret Heggs will be running this event. If you would like to join the group, please send your phone number to margaret.heggs@sky.com
New members are especially welcome to join us and will be a great way to get to know other members. Please make yourselves known to Margaret on your arrival.


Tuesday Challenge April 6th, 13th, 20th

Jan Jackson will be running a Tuesday Challenge on four courts. This will be mix-in. Booking will be through a WhatsApp group ‘Jan’s Tuesday Challenge’. There will be a maximum of 18 players on a first come first serve basis on 4 courts with 2 players waiting. 5 games. Losing pair is replaced by the two waiting. The winning pair stays on and splits. It moves very quickly! Jan looks forward to seeing you on the three Tuesdays before the league season starts. Open to all players, ladies and gents. New members are especially welcome. Please find Jan when you arrive, and she will introduce you for your first set.
To join the sessions, contact Jan at jan@janjackson.uk and let her have your phone number so that she can invite you into the WhatsApp group. Let Jan know if you would like to continue the Tuesday Challenge on Fridays once the league season starts. 

Ladies Nights

Ladies nights have once again proved very popular through April but will pause during the busy match season. We look forward to them starting up again in the Autumn.
Ladies Night, inclusive to all Hamilton ladies including new members, will be on Wednesdays, from 6.30  to 9.30

Ladies will be put into groups of 4 with the highest ranked players starting in group 1 and rankings continued down through the groups. 3 sets will be played, each player playing with each of the 3 ladies in turn. Each group will stay on the same court all night. Results are entered onto a score sheet. Each players games for the 3 sets are entered onto a score sheet and totalled up. The player who wins the most games in each group is promoted to the group above them the following week. The player with the fewest games is relegated to the group below them. In the event of a tie, a spin of a coin decides who goes up or down. 

If you would like to take part please  contact Margaret Heggs by Monday 5th April by email margaret.heggs@sky.com or phone/text 07407 547714.  Entrance will be by WhatsApp so Margaret will need your mobile number. The group will be called WedsLadiesNight21.

Come and join us to have some fun and some competitive tennis.

Tournament Nights are once a month, on the second TUESDAY of the month.  On the first of the month an entry sheet will be placed on the club notice board. Please put your name down if you want to join in or text Margaret who will put it down for you. Entry £1.

This is a social event and played for prizes on the night. We will not be organising food (if you want food please order your own beforehand.)  It would be nice if people did stay for the prize giving and a drink.

These tournaments are open to all Senior Tennis Members and Intermediates and are based on American style, which rotates players so that you are with different partners during the evening. It would be good to see new members join in.

We like to start at 6.30 prompt so please arrive earlier to pay and find your first partner. We normally finish about 9pm.
If for some reason you are unable to turn up on the night could you please try to find a replacement or phone Margaret Shufflebotham who will do the same. We do need 24 people to make the tournament run smoothly, so if you could be a reserve player, please leave your name and phone number on the sheet. (You may be called at the last minute!)
