Our Shrove Tuesday frying pan tennis competition turned out to be a big success with 12 players taking part.
All players had loads of fun, and there were some unbelievable points played considering players were using frying pans.
The final was contested by Alex and Tom with both players proving they were worthy finalists with an amazing display of powerful baseline rallies and net play skills. In a close match Alex eventually came out on top winning 10-8 to become the 2015 Mackintosh Frying Pan Tennis champion.
Following the tennis all players enjoyed some delicious pancakes in the clubhouse to round off a great evening.
With this Tuesday 17th February falling on Shrove Tuesday, we have decided to run Social Tennis with a difference for this week.
Commencing at 7pm we will be running a Frying Pan Mini Tennis competition. Normal tennis rules will apply, however entrants will be required to play with a frying pan instead of a racket. Members are encouraged to bring along their own frying pans to play with. The event is open to all adults and stronger juniors. Entries will cost £2 per person and will include a pancake in the clubhouse after the competition finishes.
There will also be an opportunity to play usual Social Tennis for those players knocked out of the competition and after the competition ends.
