Tinsel Tournament A Success

Report on our last event of 2016

Congleton LTC staged its second annual Tinsel Tournament on Thursday 15th December.This years event was once again expertly organised by Lindsay Newton with the addition of welcome sponsorship from Congleton business Top Secret Make Up

The number of players turned out to be just perfect and the tournament used a format of playing a tie break for timed session of ten minutes.At the end of ten minutes the winners stayed and split partners whilst the losing couple moved up a court and also split

Two players came off court and sat on the bench , had a mince pie and some mulled wine before it was their turn to return to court

Each player kept their own score on a card

Despite the rainy conditions all players enjoyed the event 

The overall winners were coach Istvan Kaplan and Helen Dyson who were presented with vouchers and the Top Secret Christmas Cup by business owner Noemi Keddle

After the tennis other club members joined the participants in the clubhouse for festive refreshments and chat as the "Elderly Brothers" group played some seasonal music to add to the atmosphere

On the previous Tuesday the Hardy Perennials group had staged their annual Christmas lunch

And so another year of tennis at Congleton comes to an end - thanks go to the club committee , all the team captains and players , and those who have organised competitions and events during the year , which saw the Mens A retain their league and cup double (again) and also regain the prestigious Cheshire Shield , with Ladies B also gaining promotion
