Tennis Virgins

We play every Wednesday evening starting at 8:00pm until 9.00pm at Preston Park Tennis Club. It is a perfect place for people who have not played tennis in a while or for those who do not feel they have the skills or confidence necessary to join the BLAGSS Tennis group.

Our goal is to provide basic instruction and coaching to help players get to a level where they can confidently participate in the regular group or play on a club level.

Coaching is provided by Sam, who is a professional tennis coach based at Preston Park Tennis Club. 

 

We welcome new members of any experience including beginners.


CANCELLED Return to Play Tennis Virgins

BLAGSS has decided that, in the light of the rising numbers of Covid-19 cases, and changing government guidance and legislation about group activities, the Return to Play programme due to start this evening is CANCELLED 

This is a great shame, but the health and wellbeing of our members, and public health have to come first 

Best wishes to all of you who had hoped to be back at Tennis Virgins...and hope to see you soon 

 

Tennis Virgins Return to Play programme will be rearranged as soon as it is safe and practical to do so

Congratulations everyone - great night at the Tennis Virgins Tennis Tournament

HI Tennis Virgins

What a great evening at the Tennis Virgins seasonal fun tournament on 6th November.

The rain tipped down early in the eveing - and just as we thought it would not be possible to play our tennis tournament- the rain stopped and we played on the lovely floodlit clay courts at Preston Park Tennis Club .

Our coach Sam managed a rapid round robin doubles tournament   - with everyone getting the chance to put their tennis skills into practice with a competitive edge.

On the night the overall winner was Jane - excellent play Jane 

The joint runners up were David and Rob.

Shot of the night went to David for a great smash

Most improved player was well deserved and won by Luke.

Thanks a million to Rob from BLAGSS for staffing the bar in the Clubhouse so we could all enjoy a chat, a drinkl and a little awards ceremony after the tournament.

Great play all the Tennis Virgins - and fun had by all
