It is an LTA affiliated tennis club with two grass artificial tennis courts which convert easily into a large 5-a-side football pitch - ideal for training and matches.

The courts have a floodlighting system which enables sports activities 365 days a year.

Our WI Birthday Party always comes at a welcome time of year for us as it brightens a dreary November evening. Members arrived bearing a super selection of savoury items and delicious desserts. Joining us for our 99th Birthday Party, we were very pleased to have the company of guests from Oxton and Lambley WIs, and of course our special guest and magical entertainer, “The Great Adamos”.
Susan Hannington ,our President, opened the proceedings by reading a Formal Declaration of future plans for our year-long 100th Celebration. Once the wine, fizz and soft drinks were flowing we were invited to tuck in.
Adam (aka “The Great Adamos”) circulated each of the tables in turn demonstrating tricks using expert sleight of hand. It was intriguing trying to follow the appearance/disappearance of a small ball, and completely baffling when he produced a lemon and lime seemingly out of nowhere. When, finally we could eat no more, Adam entertained us altogether with gentle humour and some very clever card tricks. He mentioned that one trick required some “special” WI wine glasses – i.e. LARGE!. Obviously it didn’t take him long to get the measure of us, and we soon realised that he was a man with far more pockets in his jacket than is usually necessary.
Adam’s final trick and piece de resistance was a levitating table which floated around the room and left us all wondering just how it was done.
Susan thanked Adam observing that “everyone needs a little magic in their lives”. After a very enjoyable evening in which thankfully no-one was sawn in half, we were all able to go home in one piece.
 
Our next meeting features a Quiz and Christmas Craft Ideas and will be held on Tuesday 10 December at 7.30pm in the Village Hall. Visitors are very welcome.
