St Columba's Tennis

Long established if relatively unknown, St Columba's Tennis Club is located between Carbery Avenue and the North Circular.

If you follow the pathway between numbers 30 and 32 Carbery Avenue, you will find our little clubhouse, along with four hard courts and, if your timing is right, some members ready to welcome you to the club.​

If you're looking for a new club and are considering St Columba's, please join us as a guest at Social Play (from 2:00pm) on a Saturday afternoon, so that you can meet and play with existing members, and get a feel for the club.

For more information:

Membership runs from 1st April 2020 to 31st March 2021.

Latest News from the Club

Message from Owain

We're open again and getting back into the swing of things. I'm so pleased that we are back on court and I will look forward to seeing you all down at the Club.

Obviously we still need to be COVID safe, so please keep up to speed with the latest LTA recommendations by following this link. Please remember to book a court before you go to the Club, or sign up for social play via WhatsApp. For those of you who need a breather between games, there are new benches on each of the courts (thanks to Joe and Stephen for sorting).

Stephen is organising another American Tournament for next weekend (more details below), so do make sure you register your interest early, to avoid disappointment.

Obviously we're unable to gather for a pre-Christmas celebration, however I'd like to wish all of our members a very Happy Christmas and will look forward to lots more tennis in 2021

Best wishes
Owain


Coach's Corner

Coach's Corner

David's Tip of the Month

When playing doubles, make sure that your partner knows where you are going to serve the ball, so that they can be ready to make an interception.

Remember to layer up and keep your muscles warm, to help avoid injury!

American Tournament

19th December at 2:00pm

As promised, Stephen will be running another American Tournament on Saturday 19th December, in lieu of the usual Saturday afternoon Club Session. We're aiming to make a prompt start at 2:00pm, so if you'd like to warm up before then, please arrive earlier.

The last American Tournament was a great success and much enjoyed by all of those who took part. Numbers are obviously limited to 16, so please sign up as soon as possible via WhatsApp, to avoid disappointment!

With Christmas fast approaching and online shopping being the safest way to shop, there's no better time to sign up to Easyfundraising!

Easyfundraising is a great way of adding to Club funds and it's completely free! Since this was set up, so far £1,045.95 has been raised for the Club by 13 supporters.

Can you help increase this number?

All you need to do is to follow the link below, press the 'Support this cause' button and then go through the easyfundraising web-site whenever you're shopping on-line. You can add it to your browser, so it automatically pops up when you're shopping with a retailer who support easyfundraising.

It's a great way of raising funds for the Club, which are put towards upgrading the facilities (courts, floodlights, Clubhouse, etc) and it doesn't cost you anything!

To sign up, please follow this link: St Columba's Easyfundraising.


Floodlight Tokens

Don't forget to buy some tokens for the floodlights!

For those members wishing to use the floodlights on Courts 1 and 2, tokens are available to buy from Nayan when he runs Club Sessions, David James (Club Coach) or any member of the Committee (Owain, Joe, Stephen, Andrew K, Andrew S and June).

The lights take a couple of minutes to warm up, with each token providing an hour of light in total. Please note that play must end by 9:00pm, to respect our neighbours. The lights switch off automatically at 9:00pm, regardless of any credit from your tokens. Unfortunately we are unable to refund members for any loss of credit.

(Don't forget to book your court via the ClubSpark Booker app and remember to keep a note of who you play with, as required by Track and Trace.)
