** National Championships Report, Upcoming Available Courts & New Email Out Format **

Hi All,


I hope that you are well and have been making the most of the good weather! It has been great to see the outside courts getting more and more use over the past 10 days or so.


Firstly to give you an update on how Prested Tennis Club got on at the recent Redwood Bank National Club championships. We had a great day at David Lloyd Bushey which has 3 lovely indoor courts where we played our box comprising of Stratford Padel Club, David Lloyd Chigwell, Hyde Park & Guernsey Padel Club. Each encounter was made up of 3 matches where we took on some of the countries best players(as well as a fair few pretty impressive Spaniards!)


We had a few particularly tight matches where we lost 7-5 in the second set to Chigwell after battling back as well as losing 11-9 in a deciding tie break against Guernsey Padel Club! But the closest match of the whole day was one of our first… a 20-18 defeat in the deciding tie break against Hyde Park. After winning only one match throughout the day I think it was safe to say that things were not going our way at key times but we certainly have to admit that even with luck on our side.. we were thoroughly outplayed and outclassed by some incredibly strong teams and good players. It was a great day had by all and we wish Stratford & Chigwell the best of luck in the next round!
