Here's a quick update for you.
These appear to be in rude health at the moment. We had 13 people at Wednesday club night this week from 7 to 10 pm, there were 15 at the outdoor session on Tuesday evening, 20(!) at Saturday club afternoon, 4 despite the rain on Thursday evening last week and 11 last Tuesday evening.
The Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday sessions are combined sessions with Elms Tennis Club and seem to be going really well. With club sessions on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, there is no shortage of tennis on offer if you want it.
The weather has prevented the mixed team in Division 2 of the North Somerset League from playing a match so far (but fingers are firmly crossed for tomorrow evening at Blackbrook), while the vets team lost their first to Victoria away 9-2.
The new men's team in the Culm and Exe Valleys League lost their KO cup match to a strong Trull team 8-0 but beat Tiverton 6-3 in their first league match last Sunday.

Kerry Quirk, the tennis centre manager, is in Miami with the Great Britain over 40s ladies' team for the World Team Championships. They won their group and are now playing off for the medal spots. There is a nice pic of the team on the Facebook page.
We need to revive the singles ladder, which petered out once the summer season got under way. I'll be setting that up again in the next week or so. I'd really like to see a thriving singles scene at the centre. Let me know if you'd like to play by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
