Real Tennis at Hatfield House

On Sunday ELTC took over Hatfield House Real Tennis Court for the Afternoon. There were many laughs as we all tried to get grips with “chases” and “bobble serves” but towards the end of the session some quality tennis was played! Poor Quality!

Thanks to the local assistant pro James for his patience and enthusiasm.
