March Club Update

Evening all
With the daylight getting longer and spring feeling like it’s close, it has been a busy month at Enfield Lawn Tennis Club and we wanted to make sure you are aware of a few things and some opportunities to get involved with the club community.

  • We have recently had a few numbers so Welcome to the club and we hope you are getting to play around the rain. For existing members please renew your membership as per the recent email.
  • Winter leagues are coming to end with a few matches remaining. Our Women’s first team and Mens 2nd team both finished a respectful 3rd in their groups. Our Mixed 1s have a chance of promotion with one game to play, and our remaining teams have chances to stay up.
  • Lianne and Nicky have started to plan the summer matches and if you want to play summer matches then please let Lianne ( and Nicky ( know.
  • For the Men’s Teams Nicky will be using Tuesdays in April as trial sessions so please come along.
  • This weekend we had an excellent quiz night run by Jim and Karen. Over 40 people were there and a good time was had by all. A truly great effort Jim and Karen. Thank you.
  • We have a fun Tournament coming up on Wednesday 3rd April at 7pm to see if midweek tennis works for Tournaments. 
  • That date is also the deadline for members to sign up to this year’s Club Tournament – sheets are up in the clubhouse.
  • On April 28th we are having a maintenance day to get the courts and clubhouse looking shipshape for the summer leagues. We will start at 10am and hope lots of people come so we can get it done quickly and then play some tennis.
  • With the Easter Holidays approaching Neil wanted us to let you know that he has Tennis Camps running for the kids on Tues 2nd April to Friday the 5th and then the following week Monday 8th to Thursday 11th. Discounts for members. Email Neil at to book your place.
  • We are looking for someone to get involved with our Safeguarding and Welfare work at the club. So if you feel you can spare the time and want to get involved with the club then please get in touch. Imogen has more details of what’s involved and I am sure she would like to be contacted.

Lastly, we have started a couple of exciting ideas on ways to grow the club’s membership and offer. More details in the future if they come off.
See you on court soon.

February Club Update

The year has started well with the AGM, fun tournament, prize giving and club matches already having happened. A new committee has been elected and we are hoping to grow membership this year. Part of that involves making sure all members are aware of what has happened recently and what is coming up. 

What has happened in the last month

The fun tournament and AGM were held on January 21st with 4 courts in action and many staying for the AGM.

Trophies were awarded to our club tournament winners for both the Junior and Adult section – see pictures on the website.

Club matches continue to be played, despite some of the weather, and we have seen victories for our Women’s and Men’s 2s team, leaving the Men’s 2s pushing for promotion.

Our Mixed and Men’s 1s didn’t fare quite so well.

Things happening in the next month or two

The next fun tournament is scheduled for Sunday 25th February. Why not come along and meet others from the club.

Jim and Karen are running a Quiz Night and Fish and Chip supper on Friday March 16th. Look out for the sign up sheet in the clubhouse. £20 for entry and the traditional fish and chips.

Look out for the membership renewal email from Colin and the early sign up discount. And £99 for new mebers.

The club matches and rota nights continue. New rota price of £5 due to the increases in Electricity and ball costs.

Wednesday Evening Tournament on April 3rd – after Easter and the clocks go back – make use of the extra daylight with this fun tournament.

Opportunities to get involved with the club

We are always looking for people to get involved in helping running events and the club. If you have an idea on something fun to do together as a club then let us know.In particular we are looking for someone to help with the Welfare and Safeguarding in the club. Making sure we have a safe environment for our Juniors especially to play in. Please contact us if you are interested in contributing more to the club.

Highlight of 2023


The Club Finals Day was, this year, held on the Saturday 8th July. We started early at 10.30 with the Men’s Doubles as we had a lot of matches to get through, and wanted to avoid the rain! Our priority was to see our star players early in the day, when they were fresh and eager! As suspected, we were not disappointed!

Jon Warnes and Miles Liversidge, who was playing his first ever senior tournament,  took on Jon Yelland and Oliver Bunyan. It was a blistering match, despite the rain beginning to spit. The spectators saw a great game played in good spirits. The players displaying some superb tennis and interesting tactics! Yelland and Bunyan eventually took the cup, but it was hard fought match and a pleasure to watch.

The Men’s Singles saw an epic match. Nicky Kirk played Jon Warnes. As you can imagine, the footwork and the shots were speedy and decisive. They certainly used all of the court! Nicky Kirk played so well and there were loads of thrills and spills. And plenty of rain! The guys wanted to fight through this, and the balls had be changed to accommodate them. Unfortunately, even Nicky couldn’t break the Jon Warnes consistent run on this trophy.

The Mixed Doubles was equally exciting. Oliver Bunyan and Lindsay Cameron took on and Caroline and Miles Liversidge.  Congratulations to Miles. To reach two Finals in the Club Tournament the first time you are eligible is such an achievement. But the cup wasn’t to be. The Lindsay and Oliver combo took the crown, again!

The Ladies Singles Competition was played in a different format this year, ELTC as experimental as ever! The feedback on the process was that it was a very enjoyable experience. With three Finalists playing each other in a Round Robin.  Here they are Imogen, Caroline and Lindsay after they played. And the winner was Lindsay Cameron.

Despite the rain it was a great day socially, with players and spectators enjoying a great BBQ afterwards, whilst the kids played football on the lawn, all in true ELTC style.

Welcome to 2024

The New Year often brings a new you and if your resolution is to be more active this year then why not come and try us out.

With 6 courts – 3 refurbished in 2023 – then we have plenty of space for players at all levels and our special introduction membership of £99 makes it quite affordable to join our club.

See you on court soon!
