During our weekly Community Club sessions in early February, members from six clubs took part in Tennis taster sessions or travelled to a neighbouring club for a derby competition.
In association with the Tennis Foundation and the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA), the clubs used the LTA Team Challenge Resources to stage competitions.
The ClubDerbys were incredibly tight, with Lambeth overcoming Wandsworth by only one point! Two volunteers represented Club Sutton at Club Southwark, with Team A narrowly taking the win following a tie break.
Club Hackney and Club Brent also enjoyed taster sessions at their regular sessions.
The Club Derby Series allows us to bring a competitive element into the club environment, while showcasing other sports within the clubs allows our members to get a taste of what else is available within their region.
The LTA Team Challenge was a great resource to implement into this Derby Series which really livened up the atmosphere and ramped up the competition!
Project Officer Emma Cranston said “Members love competing as a club. It brings them closer together and shows just how proud they are of their club".
