Exhibition match and pavilion opening – Saturday 19th November

We are excited to announce a special day of events at the club next Saturday 19th November, to mark the official opening of the new tennis pavilion and to welcome our new cafe and bar caterers. We hope as many of you as possible will come along to show your support!
Here is a timeline for the day:
  • 12 noon: An exhibition match between Dorset County Men’s Singles Champion Louis Allen and British Tour Coach James Davidson
  • 12.30 – 2pm: ‘Have a go’ tennis activities, with donations going to our new fund for Louis Allen*
  • 2pm: Official opening of the pavilion by Richard Henshaw, Chairman of Dorset LTA
  • 2.30 – 3.30pm: Opportunity to play against Louis or James in club afternoon
  • 2.30 – 4pm: Pop along to the clubhouse to meet our new caterers and sample their tea/coffee and cake!
  *We’re marking this special occasion for the club by celebrating the success of our talented junior Louis Allen and to create a fund which will help him to achieve his goals. Louis needs to attend more tournaments to progress in the tennis world, each of which can cost hundreds of pounds. Although Louis has some sponsorship, he would be really grateful for further support. After the exhibition match between Louis and ATP certified coach James Davidson, you’ll be able to have a go at these activities for a small donation to Louis’ fund: • Test your serve speed • Pass the Pro • Score a point • Wrong hand tie break Good luck!
