WGTC opens new season with a win

A Millennium Cup win over Telford –

There’s a breath of fresh air sweeping over Woodfield Grove as the new tennis season begins with a win.

Last weekend the club’s Millennium Cup team scored a fine win over Telford Park, bringing to an end the recent drought of success in the friendly local competition.

It puts us top of the leaderboard with Grafton, at least for openers. A full report will follow…

The Millennium Cup involves the five clubs of Streatham in a league competition that provides friendly competition across all age groups.

It’s a chance for players to gain a taste for match play in a friendly environment and a good social event as food and drinks are served alongside.

Best of all is that the top players in the club are excluded to make for an even-playing field and because they get to play plenty of matches anyway in the Surrey leagues!

We field 7 teams in the Wilson Surrey Tennis competitions over the summer and winter months, in both leagues and knockouts.

There are three men’s teams, two ladies’ and two mixed teams, as well as other competitions in the summer aimed at those looking to improve their match skills.

For the first time, in 2017, the club has entered a men’s team into the Aegon Team Championships, the national club competition and play kicks off in that on Sunday 23 April when Woodfield Grove plays Riddlesdown at home.

Our new membership season begins on 1 May when subscriptions are renewed and we welcome new players to the club.

Why not come down and have a look, maybe even join us?
