Club web site: new address, same great features

TTWebScreenFollowing our tennis club’s change of name last year we have made our web site address follow suit. It is now at www.thamesidetennis.co.uk
All your favourite pages are still there including match results, the weather forecast for Dukes Meadows, subscription rates, travel information and the calendar. There is also a new feature below the weather forecast: a link to our court booking facility on the LTA’s ClubSpark where, once you have signed in or registered, you may book one of our floodlit, acrylic courts.

The Tennis Open for Royal Marsden

An invitation to the  charity tennis tournament for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity

TORM Logo

The Tennis Open for Royal Marsden is a social tennis tournament, which aims to raise £10,000 for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. Since its inauguration in 2016, the generous donations from players, donors and sponsors have enabled us to raise an incredible £12,836. We do not have any administrative costs. Every penny raised goes direct to the Charity. The event is a doubles tournament for adults (aged 16+). You do not have to come with a playing partner as you will have the opportunity to play with every player on the court that you are assigned to, and depending on timings you could have up to 7-8 matches. Raffle prizes include tickets to U.K. tournaments, having your portrait painted, a session at Queen’s Club including dinner, racquets, clothing etc.

Thameside members are urged to take part: Registration form here

Date & time: Sunday May 13th., 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Place: National Tennis Centre, 100 Priory Lane, Roehampton SW15 5JQ

Thameside Tennis blog’s new series continues to try to help you to improve your weekend’s tennis. We will provide links to good videos and tips on strokes, footwork, warm-ups and practice.
