I joined Langley Tennis Club in April 2017 prior to my retirement in June 2017 to start lessons as I had not played tennis at all before. I started to have a lesson a week with Dimi and joined in the drill sessions playing 2 to 3 times a week, also playing singles and doubles whenever I can. I have the bug!!
I really enjoy the sport and play whenever I can, also competing in the monthly Round Robin competitions to gain as much experience as I can.
Last season I played for the club in the ladies matches. I was so pleased to play for the club, and it made me realise how far I had come since I started playing in 2017. I am sure that a good part of this was due to Langley Tennis Club being a very friendly club who have excellent coaches, who are encouraging and helpful and for the very friendly atmosphere within the club.
Towards the end of last year, I took part in a coaching session with 2 ex professional tennis players who came to the club to highlight the “Bright Ideas Charity”, it was interesting so I thought I would take part in the tennis marathon being played in February to give something back and raise money for the charity and the club. On 22nd February it will be early to bed and early to rise for me so that I can do my bit in the marathon as our club session starts at 4am!!!
Thank you to Langley Tennis club for your help and encouragement, I just love playing tennis.
