What’s happening at ELTC

New Members  –  A warm welcome to all our new members. It’s great to see you getting involved in the various rotas and playing opportunities the Club organises. Do think of coming along to one of our Fun Tournaments too. It’s a great way to meet people, you get new partners and opposition for each set! The next one is 14th June, starts at 7pm

Teams – The Summer Leagues have started. The Mens teams are performing really well. The 1sts have played two matches against Coolhurst & Enfield Chase, winning both convincingly. The 2nd Team played Muswell Hill Methodists and won 20-4 & we drew against Winchmore Hill.  The ladies have played one match against Hadley Wood who fielded a strong team. We came second.

Social – 24th June Quiz Night is sold out! As mentioned above the next Fun Tournament is 14th June, a Wednesday @ 7pm. Club Tournament Finals Days are 8th and 9th July. Come along to see our Champs, Pimms is usually on the menu for spectators! Finally, we are repeating music on the lawn session. Nicky & Gemma Kirk will be performing at the Club in September. Watch this space for the date, and you never know that BBQ might even get lit once again!

Coaching – Neil has started a new midweek class for Primary School aged children on a Thursday night and the kids are loving it! If you have kids/grandkids this age get them involved. It’s 5pm on a Thursday.

Finals Day 2022

It was a glorious day. The sun was shining, the spectators topping up their tans. The bar was busy, busy with the need for super cold drinks, and our trojan finalists played on! We started early at 10am to give the players some respite, and there was some superb tennis.

The Men’s Plate was long and hard. These guys played for over two hours and attracted many spectators. Eventually someone had to win, congratulations to both Polydorou and Georgio for some great tennis. Polydorou eventually taking the Plate!

The Ladies Doubles was also a cracker. This year we had two new members in the final. A new, formidable pairing in Sarah and Claudia, playing Caroline and Lindsay. They used all the court! There were some great ‘gets’ and phenomenal volleys. There were frequent shouts of well played and good shot from the audience! Eventually Lindsay and Caroline took the match, but it was so exciting.

The Mixed Doubles also saw some new pairings. With Jack Shepard and Vicky Warnes taking the court to play Oliver Bunyan and Lindsay Cameron. This match again drew an audience with lots of gasps and ooo’s as these four played to the lines. Some superb tennis and good on court communication. Jack and Vicky took the crown on the day, but watch this space. Who knows what might happen next year?

The Men’s Doubles also had new members involved, it was great to see Peter Scollen and Andrew Harris take on Oliver Bunyan and Jack Shepherd. As a newly formed pair they had a formidable task in the heat of the day, but everyone had a good time and excellent shots abounded. Oliver and Jack taking the Cup.

We finished with the Men’s Singles,  the Ladies Singles has been delayed because of the searing heat, and news of this will be posted asap. Jack Shepherd taking to the court a third time that day against the current Champion Jon Warnes. We had a thrilling first set, with Jack leading 4-2, before Jon fought back and took it. Battle Royal ensued and Jon Warnes retained his title.

A great day was had by all. Thanks so much for all the help, especially to the Tournament organiser, Lianne. We really appreciate those who Umpired, helped with the food and cooked the delicious post tournament BBQ.

Tournament & Tunes

A totally enjoyable, laid-back afternoon of tennis on a very pleasant day. The winner of the bottle of bubbles was Colin Woodley. It was great to see so many people enjoying themselves having a good competitive game. What a delight having such young well-behaved children running around our lovely space.

And what could be better than rounding off such a fantastic afternoon with our own outdoor gig with the very talented Gemma & Nicky (& Rich on bass) a.k.a. Lost Chimes. We are so fortunate to have such amazing people amongst our community. The rain held off and we sang together. What a great way to celebrate being able to gather again.

“End of Lockdown” the Trilogy – 29th March onwards

The latest and hopefully final, COVID 19 lockdown comes to an end soon, with play and coaching due to commence (with certain restrictions) on 29th March 2021.

We will start rotas as soon as possible and club tennis turn up and play will be Wednesday 7:30pm and Sunday 10:00am. The rota organisers will be in touch soon.

Also, we will run some fun tournaments and the Middlesex League will also commence for the summer, so plenty of tennis action to look forward to.
