TENNIS

Arbroath Lawn Tennis Club

Annual Tournament Trophy Presentation

On Sunday the club will be presenting the trophies from the often cancelled tournament finals that were due to complete on August 17. All winners and runners up will be receiving their prizes – as well as all of the mini red and mini orange participants.

The trophies will be presented at 3 p.m. but there will be some free coaching before that.

From 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Rhiann (plus helpers) will be offering free coaching to kids AND ADULTS…so – particularly the parents – if you have yet to try the game this is your chance.

Throughout the afternoon there will also be a bouncy castle (courtesy of Bouncing Hire). This will hopefully keep the really young ones amused while the parents have a game.

The tots/and mini tennis coaching will take place as normal afterwards from 3.30pm until 6pm

10K Run

On Saturday, Club President Graham Crabb will run the Trossachs 10K to help raise funds for the new courts. Anyone who would like to sponsor Graham can still do so at www.justgiving.com/altc10k
