Hi All,

 

I am writing to you a little earlier than usual this week, simply because we are in for a very busy and exciting weekend at the club! Plus, it might be worth looking at your courts next week as those evenings are starting to get booked up that bit earlier week by week...

 

As well as this I did not want to miss the opportunity to tell you about some of the key days that you might want to be around for. As you probably know it is the British Padel Tour SILVER event this weekend, with many of our members involved as well as top players including 2 of the top 3 ranked male players in the UK AND 4 out of the top 5 ranked female players!

 

You may also recognise names of some of our top local players such Claire Fahey, Crystal Fernandez, Gonzalo Almanza & Alberto Ordonez who will all be trying to make the most of a vocal home crowd. If you would like to come and support our locals (or your favourite top UK player) please see the days of play below...

 

Friday 5pm – 9pm - Social Tournament

Saturday 9am – 8pm - Mens & Ladies Open Events

Sunday 9am – 5pm - Vets (+45’s) Event

 

This should be a fantastic weekend at the club... make sure you don’t miss it!!

Hi All,

 

I am delighted to be writing my first newsletter out to the Padel members! I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself to those of whom I have not yet met.

My colleague Ben Smith is an avid Padel player whom you may have seen playing(and often winning!) at events at the club previously. He has also gained his Level 2 British Padel coaching qualification which puts him in a great position to offer lessons/matchplay sessions to those who would like to take their game to the next level!

Dear Padel Member,

 

Just a short note to let you all know that sadly Claire and I will no longer be running Padel at Prested from next Monday.

 

Your new team will be made up of Lewis Williams and Ben Smith. We wish them all the very best and hope you all receive an excellent level of service.

 

We will be continuing our role in real tennis so we look forward to seeing you all around the club and we will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have over the sudden change.

 

Many thanks for your support over the recent months.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Rob & Claire Fahey

Hi all,

Hope everyone has been enjoying their Padel this January.  A huge thank you goes out to Rich who held the fort, assisted by Ged & Zack for the month.  We are now back and it's business as usual ??

 

For those unaware, Team Fahey did have a fairly successful Aussie trip...

 

In Hobart, Rob & his partner Nicky made the World Doubles Final, sadly to fall short against the holders.

In Melbourne, Rob made Semi-Finals in both the Singles & Doubles Australian Open and Claire picked up both Ladies Open titles, partnered with Tara Lumley.

and finally in Ballarat, Claire managed to defend World Singles & Doubles title, again partnered by Tara Lumley.

 

But that's enough about TF tennis...on to the week of Padel ahead....
