Annual Mixed Double Championship – Saturday 23rd Sept 2017

You should all have received a mail about the Mixed Doubled Championship

The changed format will be to hold the tournament in a single afternoon and will be made up of a group stage and then a final.

The final format will depend on how many pairs enter. There will be refreshments as usual and the bar will be open

There is a sign up sheet at the club and if you don’t have a partner sign up with your phone number so other unpaired players can contact you. Otherwise ask the men’s or ladies captains.

Looking forward to a great day

Announcing ELTC Summer Ball – June 24th 2017

Summer BallDear Club Member,

2017 is a very significant year in the history of our Tennis Club. This year is our 110th anniversary and to celebrate this milestone we are arranging a Summer Ball to be held on Saturday June 24th in the beautiful setting of Enfield Golf Club. It will include:

  • A Champagne Reception
  • A 3-course Luxury Dinner (3 choices within each course)
  • Inclusive Table Wine (2 x Red + 2 x White on each table)
  • A disco so you can dance away the evening

To mark the significance of this event, Black Tie is the preferred dress code.

We are looking to host at least 80 people to make the evening viable so will need to know your intention to participate within the next two weeks at the latest. A reply to this email quoting numbers of diners will suffice.

The cost for the evening is £50 per head and this will be collected in two payments: 50% as a non-refundable deposit around the end of February and the balancing 50% around the end of April when individual menu choices will be finalised.

Please note that this is open to current members, ex members, and guests so please signal your intentions early. Ideally, tables of eight will work best for the venue.

It is bound to be an enjoyable and memorable evening so, if you would like to join in, don’t leave it too late to say yes! This type of event doesn’t happen very often and should not be missed.

If you have any further questions on this event please email Jim Warnes (,uk) who will do his best to answer them.
