35 Year Anniversary Event - Saturday 27th April 2019

Update: An article about our event was published in the Kent LTA magazine (page 46):  http://www.kenttennis.org/news-directory/ewExternalFiles/KLT%20Spring%202019%20LR.pdf

MLTC recently celebrated its 35th anniversary as a club. To mark the occasion it held a free event, open to members and non-members which proved to be a great family day. Despite the inclement weather the club had a brilliant turn out with about 25 juniors and 35 adults taking part with 10 new members signing up on the day. The Deputy President of Kent LTA, John Watton, came along to show his support. He said: “The transformation of the club in the last few years is remarkable. With excellent club volunteers working well with HOTSHOTZ providing quality coaching, it is no surprise that the membership has trebled and a friendly and positive atmosphere has evolved and is now present during all club and coaching sessions.”

Activities at the event included a family fun cardio tennis session, where the juniors certainly showed the adults that they could run rings around them! There were adult and junior coaching sessions, as well as the opportunity for people to test their tennis skills. Family members were competing to see who could serve the fastest and the ball machine was a hit with all ages. The coaches’ skills were put to the test when they played against some of the participants, but with only a frying pan instead of a racket!! The event was rounded off with a well earnt BBQ.

Congratultions to our winners in the Maidstone Open on Sunday 10th March. Rob MacInnes and Cantor M in the mens doubles, Gemma H in the ladies doubles and Steve T in the over 60's men's doubles. With Zane also winning the elite men's doubles and mixed doubles. It was a great day for the club.
