Interskill Boules Day
Interskill-Boules On Thursday the 7th of September the tennis club hosted the staff and students of Interskill for a day of boules and a BBQ. Everyone had a good time, a big thanks to Mandy Stephenson (and Angus) for helping out and explaining the rules. Several of the lads helped to dig out the gravel and get the area ready to lay the piste so it was nice to let them have a go as a way of saying thanks.

Louth Lawn Tennis Club Juniors -v- Tealby Tennis Cub Juniors

20170630_194214

Louth Tennis Club’s junior players travelled to Tealby for a friendly Friday evening competition with the village tennis club’s youngsters. It was the first match many of the children had played and they did really well showing a great sporting attitude. Each club had a squad of six players who took turns to play against each other in matches lasting five minutes. There were some great rallies in some of the games and all the children learnt a lot from the experience.
Both sides were evenly matched during the first few rounds and the scores were close with Louth edging ahead about half way through.The scores evened out towards the last few matches to set up a nail-biting final two rounds. Tealby’s youngsters fought back hard in the last two matches and won by 17 points to 13.
Tealby were excellent hosts and the visitors were treated to pizza, biscuits and squash after the game. Louth will set up a return match at their courts after the summer holiday.

AGM

The 2016 AGM was held on the 10th of November. Thanks to the Wheatsheaf for providing a room and refreshments (yummy chips!) The new committee was elected, please see our Committee Members page. Welcome Kate Goddard! We thank outgoing committee member Roger White for his many years’ service on the committee. Once the formalities were over, Terry ran a quiz with the winning team of Jonny Two (Jim Judge and Jonty Carr) running away with three bottles of wine. “A wonderful and engaging evening” was the typically enthusiastic response from Mr Carr! Minutes from the AGM will soon be pinned up in the clubhouse, should you care to know the ever-exciting details.
