This year’s finals day was a combined event of the various tennis finals and the official opening of the club’s new, or rather renovated, clubhouse.

The day was kicked off at 10:15 am by the ladies’ and men’s/open singles finals in which Rachel and Alice, and Sarah and Jana battled not only against each other but also the rising sun and temperature.

Throughout the morning people trickled in and by the time the singles were finished a good crowd had gathered. By 12:30, both singles finals were over and the official opening took place, complete with ribbons, prosecco and the necessary expressions of thanks uttered by the club chairman Elaine. 

You can see the amazing transformation of our clubhouse in the photos below.
