Robyn Moore will be visiting the club on Wednesday 19th June 8.30am-12.30pm – for a session towards Breakpoint 2019, a charity event taking place over 30 days at venues all over the country, raising funds for people with mental ill health, physical, learning and sensory disabilities. Robyn Moore, who suffers from PTSD is aiming to hit 200,000 shots in 30 days, so please come up and help motivate her by being on court (click on the image to see her story)
What a great night, 100 people attended, so the function room was "cosy", but everyone had a great time trying to answer the mixture of easy and devious questions from Quizmaster Colin. At half time Christine and her team served a delicious chilli (with hot, mild & vegetarian option) to keep our brains fed ready for the second half. The Draught House Bar kept the liquid refreshments flowing.
As always it was very competitive. Scores were expertly collated and verified by Leslie. Third place went to team "Where's Lozza", 2nd to "Norfolk 'n Chance" and the champions were team "Andy's Hipsters". The wooden spoons were humbly accepted by team "Nutty Woofers Over the Hills" who promptly gave us a rendition on spoon, table and glass of an unrecognisable classic! Prizes were generously supplied by Tatton Brewery, Legh Arms and Knutsford Little Theatre.
An amazing £895 was raised on the night for the Junior Courts Fund. Thank you organisers Christine and Colin Banks; Andy Lynes for sound system; Leslie for keeping the "scores on the doors" and Sandi for the kitchen prep.

Tonight not only did we celebrate my decade with you, we celebrated you wonderful wonderful Knutfordians. You inspire me as much as I inspire you. You have taken me in as part of your family and to each and everyone of you, I thank you for that.
Keep enjoying your tennis!
Keep loving the thrill of winning a point, a game, a set, a match! Keep anguishing in a loss or a missed shot you know only too well you shouldn’t have missed, because this game I have chosen to give my life to and educate my own family into and love passing my knowledge of onto all of you wonderful people is the best game you will ever play - I promise you that.
So embrace the ups, embrace the downs and when you put your racket away at the end of a win or a loss, look forward to the next time you're going to pull out that racket and do it all again.
See you on court my family.... get practicing for my Challenge Cup next year! and thank you for my book of memories - a copy is shown below.
