The latest news from Brackley Tennis Club

Nothing Ever Happens in Brackley

The Tennis Club will be represented at Saturday’s Nothing Ever Happens in Brackley event at the Town Hall. Here’s an update from the Brackley Online Post Plans are well advanced for Saturday’s exhibition at the Town Hall and on the Piazza. We will have in excess of 40 clubs and organisations represented which will lay to rest forever the claim that ‘nothing happens in Brackley!’ Every possible age is catered for from the very young (play groups and schools) through to teenagers (sports and skateboarding) to help for the elderly. Ignoring the ageist slant, there will be live music for all tastes, the Angling Club will be demonstrating their coaching for youngsters, you can learn to play Bridge or Knit or get involved with Nature. The website has a full list of which clubs will be represented and what time demonstrations will be on (there are 2 programmes running, both in the Town Hall and on the Piazza) so if you have a particular interest make a note of when to come.

Court Cleaning

The courts are going to be cleaned in two goes, firstly courts 1-3, then courts 4 &amp. 5. The contractor for the work is Nigel Taylor. Whilst the courts are being cleaned play will not be possible for anyone. The work on courts 1-3 will start in the second week of September and is expected to take 3 days to complete. The courts will need to be dry before the sand can be replaced, so we are hostage to the weather as to when the courts will be available for use. Once courts 1-3 are complete the remaining 2 courts will be cleaned. During the period of cleaning, Carolyn Markham has kindly offered her private court for use by the club should the need arise.
