This weekend is Club Junior Championships and spectators are
always welcome. Why not come at 12 on Saturday (10) and watch the 8 & under mixed singles? Refreshments will be available.
 
On Sunday 18th we are hosting the annual Todmorden Shield competition between Albany, Castletown and Ramsey. It’s total games won rather than sets in Men’s and Women’s Doubles and whilst Albany and Castletown have dominated over the many years it’s been played. Play starts at 1:30pm.
 
Tuesday, 27 October is the final American tournament for this year. There will be prizes for winners on the night and “Champions” trophies for winner and runner-up over the 4 tournaments.  As these have been popular we intend to run a similar series in the Spring.
