Following on from last year, we are keen to get more parents playing tennis at the club. We have got an option to join as a parent member for £50 – this entitles you to use the courts with your child on Saturdays after 3pm, all day on Sundays and during school holidays (when the courts are available).

Additionally, we are continuing our membership referral offer this year – if you refer a friend who joins as a FULL Individual Adult, you will receive a FREE 1/2 hour Individual Lesson or a Mackintosh LTC T-shirt.

Mackintosh LTC – Mixed Singles Handicap Competition 2016 – Results

Handicap Final 2016

Saturday was a great day at the club with the Tennis Mixed Singles Handicap finals taking place.

Firstly,  Head Coach Rhys Morgan was against Coach Billy Barclay in the Main Draw final. The handicap system meant Rhys had to give Billy an 8 point head start in each set. Both players played some excellent tennis in the match with Rhys eventually coming out on top in 3 sets 21-12 9-21 21-11.

The second match was the Consolation Draw final which was contested between Aaron Trott and Oskar Gregory. Both players had excellent wins in their respective semi-finals to reach this stage of the competition. Oskar proved to be too strong for Aaron in the final winning in straight sets 21-8 21-13. This was a great achievement for Oskar – who was the youngest player in the draw.

A big shout out to Chair Umpire Tom Griffiths who did an excellent job umpiring the matches. Also a huge thanks to all of the spectators who came along to watch the matches.
