This yearâ€™s event was attended by over 2700 people and raised a record Â£9.7K for Club funds. Thanks go to our sponsor, ask Frost & Co, view and suppliers of the other attractions, health Castlemania, Dorset Pizzetta, Face painters Amy and Anita, and Sam FM. Also, to St Johns Ambulance for medical cover and Skyburst for supplying the superb fireworks. However the biggest thanks must go to the 57 volunteers listed below that enabled this event to happen by performing the numerous tasks required before, during and after the day.
Thank you and please continue to support the events at your Club.

Now we’re in November we’re all going to need to use the floodlights more when we play tennis in the evenings.Â However, please be aware of restrictions that mean the floodlightsÂ should not be on after 10.30pm. Also, if at any time you leave the courts before the lights go off automatically, please help us to save electricity (and money) by pressing the HOLD button as explained in the instructions below: This means that the lights can then be reactivated next time they are used.Â These instructions are also displayed by the token meters in each hut.Â Thank you!
