08 Feb 2017 : Frosty Racquets Gallery
Dear Members,

Thanks to photographers Tim Smith and Tom Clarke, you can all view the event in detail.  This could lead to competitions such as, "Spot the Ball" or even a teaching manual to show the various strokes, court positioning, tactics or even what to wear on court.

Enjoy the slide show and do come along to the next tournament; it was fun.



31 Jan 2017 : Frosty Racquets

Dear Members,

Honestly this really is the last email before the big day. Numbers are improving but to help with the draw and format, would you please confirm by Thursday 7pm if you are planning to join us? Thanks to those who have confirmed already; you are in!! A few have said maybe so would they please confirm their intentions?  The tournament organiser i.e. Tim, is poised ready to make the day run smoothly...all we need are definite numbers. 

If you do receive another email it will be to say the tournament has been postponed to the reserve date of 12th February. Fingers crossed this doesn't happen. 

So all being well see as many as possible on Sunday. Remember f you haven't booked a place the deadline is :

Thursday 2nd February 7pm.
