Great British Tennis Weekend comes to Highgate

A big thank-you to everyone for making Sunday’s Open Day such a success.

Thanks to a huge turn-out, fabulous weather and a fantastic buzz around Shepherd’s Cot, last Sunday turned out to be a very special day for the club. While Cricket put on an amazing event – buoyed by their narrow (lucky!) victory over us in the football – we over at tennis opened the club to the community.

More than 60 people of all ages came to the club, many for the first time, for an afternoon of free coaching, mini tennis or to just use our courts to play a couple of sets.

Thanks to the fantastic work of our coaching team and the spirit of the volunteers on the day, many of our visitors expressed their gratitude, were overwhelmingly impressed with our club and very keen to come back. And a big thank-you to all for bearing with us on the day and allowing our visitors to have use of all the main and school courts.
