Quorn Family Tennis Cup – Sunday 29th April, 2018

We would like to invite your child and an adult family member to play in the  Quorn Family Tennis Cup at Wisbech Tennis Club on Sunday 29th April.  

I have copied the following from the LTA website to give you more information. The Quorn™ Family Tennis Cup provides families with the opportunity to play tennis in an informal, fun competition run by their local venue, while also encouraging families to play tennis more often and to eat healthy food to complement an active lifestyle. The winners of each red ball competition will earn the opportunity of a day out at a Quorn Family Tennis Cup event held on the qualifying weekend of a LTA grass court major event in May or June.  Each pair will have the chance to play against other winners on the day as well as watch the professional players in action.

Who can play in the 2018 red ball event?

Peter Peukert Memorial Trophy – 20th December 2017


Lilliana Izzo is the latest recipient of the Peter Peukert Memorial Trophy.  14 year old Lilliana is pictured receiving a memento trophy from Fay Peukert at the Junior Christmas Party held at Elgoods Visitor Centre.    This award is presented annually to the junior player who has shown the most improvement and commitment over the season.  Mr Peukert died over 30 years ago and was a member of the club for many years, and served on the committee in a variety of roles.  He loved his tennis and played very much for the fun of it rather than competitively, although he did play in matches.  He encouraged other people to play and got his daughter Sarah involved in tennis, and the family have continued to support this award for which we are very grateful.  The children enjoyed an afternoon of fun and games followed by a tea provided by the parents.
