Couples invited to join in 'country house' tennis tournament
By David Wood
Where: Hill & Valley Lawn Tennis Club, Chedworth
When: Saturday, June 8, 8.45am to 6.30pm
Tennis lovers - ideally couples - are invited to take part in the 38th Coln Valley Tennis Tournament on Saturday, June 8.
Organised by the Chedworth-based Hill & Valley Lawn Tennis Club, the long-established event raises funds for the club and the churches of Coln St Dennis, Coln Rogers and Chedworth.
The sociable tennis tournament is played on delightful courts in and around Chedworth which are very kindly loaned out for the day. Players are therefore requested to wear tennis whites or predominantly white clothing.
The competition is a mixed doubles tournament, with the early rounds being played to a sliding handicap so that you can enjoy the tennis whatever your standard.
The aim is to have all the morning groups playing on private courts in surrounding villages and the finals are held in the afternoon on the Hill & Valley club courts in Chedworth.
Morning coffee, an excellent two-course lunch and afternoon tea and cake are all included in the £36 entry fee.
The deadline for entries is this Sunday (June 2) and anyone interested in entering should email tournament co-ordinator Simon Colbeck at firstname.lastname@example.org
Simon said: "We are primarily on the look-out for couples to enter. We've previously had people from London and all over the place.
"We've had up to 100 people playing in the past and so far this year we have about 60 entrants."
