Kingswood Park Fun day 10 June 2018 

We had a great day providing Free Tennis Tasters to local youngsters. With over 100 trying out tennis - many for the first time - and then some feeding into our Junior squad program. A fantastic effort all round.

Christmas Meal - with "WhoDunnit" Murder Mystery December 2017

A great evening was had by all at our annual Christmas meal this year flavoured by a fancy dress WhoDunnit Murder Mystery. Many clues later (and a few of us were clueless) and we discovered that the man who did the dirty deed was none other than ... Lord Gardiner himself !

Photos here.

Many thanks to Lisa for her hard work in organising the Mystery and to the staff at The Elm Tree for a wonderful meal ... and for putting up with us !

GREAT NEWS ! ... Funding boost for Hanham Community Centre Tennis Club - completed in May 2016

Hanham Community Centre is celebrating the news that it has received a £9,906.00 funding boost from SITA Trust for improvements to the tennis club.

The majority of the funding has been put towards replacing the fencing.

Ray Millard, (former) Chairman of the Community Centre’s Tennis Club said “It is important to maintain the tennis facility to ensure the club can continue to provide enjoyable sport for its members and the local community. We are grateful that SITA Trust has made this possible” 

Marianne Ivin of SITA Trust added “Hanham Tennis Club is a small friendly club which is keen to encourage new members. The club received £10,000 from SITA Trust in June 2010 for the resurfacing of the two courts and installing a footpath from the courts to the car park.

SITA Trust provides grants through the Landfill Communities Fund. This important source of funding has been available since 1997 and has provided such worthy projects with more than £1.4 billion. 

Latest news ... this project is now completed May 2016 ... here are some photos
