Quorn Family Tennis Cup

There was an excellent turnout of 14 children and their parents for the Quorn Family Tennis Cup on Sunday 3rd May. All of the players had a great time playing with some fantastic matches taking place throughout the competition.


The competition started with a round robin format with doubles teams playing against all of the other pairs within their group. The winner of each group and best 2nd place pair all progressed to the Semi-Finals. In the first Semi-final Lewis and Mark were up against Merlin and Rio – in an excellent match Lewis and Mark came through to book their place in the final. In the second Semi-final Tilly and Mark played Rocco and Becky – in a nail-biting match Rocco and Becky won on a sudden death point 10-9 to reach the final. With lots of people watching there were some amazing rallies in the final – Rocco and Becky both played really well to win 10-6 in the final.

After all of the matches had finished all of the children were presented with a certificate. Lewis and Mark won some grips and a drawstring bag for finishing runners-up. Rocco and Becky won some grips and a tennis cap, plus an invitation to go and play at one of the British Tennis Summer Grass Court events, where they will play some of the other winners from across the UK and get the chance to watch some professional tennis.

Frying Pan Mini Tennis Competition Results

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.
