Generally I feel the club has been ‘lifted’ by the introduction of the new facilities with members jockeying to get on courts 7 & 8 at all times and the coaches loving the improved surface to teach on. Our grand opening was a great success with the help of Bright Ideas for Tennis and Marcus Willis at a late time of the season and we hope to maintain that momentum into the new year and beyond.

The initial Open Day run by Bright Ideas and the knock-on activities have had a major effect on the club itself and our visibility in the local community. Cardio tennis sessions (8 players per week) Touchtennis tournaments (48 players) . Funds raised by Bright Ideas for Tennis were viewed ‘highly positively’ by the LTA as part of our loan application

There are lots of positives I can tell you about. The positive relationship with our partnership school is booming. Also, we are looking at the possibility of partnerships with other schools in the area to start making tennis an essential part of the Physical Education curriculum, in our area. Without Bright Ideas for Tennis, we can ask ourselves, would we have been in a position to achieve this? My answer is a resounding no
