Presentation Evening 2021

Thank you to Claremont for hosting the Presentation evening
Also, thankyou to everyone who attended the presentation evening and made it a fun and enjoyable experience. The quiz was a lot of fun, and the abundance of pasties were very enjoyable. I have put some photos from the evening on the right side of the site. You may have to scroll down if you are viewing on a smartphone in portrait view. It’s better viewed in landscape view.

Tennis Presentation Evening update

More information
Further to my email of 27th August, 2021,
I can now inform you that the price of the tickets for the Walkden League Tennis Presentation on Friday 8th October 2021 will be £5.00 per person.
There will also be a pasty and pea supper.
For those of you who have indicated that you wish to attend, can you let me know as soon as possible if anyone from your club will require the vegetarian option. This will will be cheese pasty instead of potato & meat. Any other club members still wishing to attend please let me know for catering purposes.
Will all clubs please note that you are expected to donate a raffle prize which should be brought on the night or for those not attending to be given to Pauline Ashton or Caroline Whelan beforehand.
Any club who has still not returned a trophy to Caroline Whelan please do so as a matter of urgency. They have to be sent for engraving before the presentation. Any not returned will not be able to be presented on the night.
We look forward to seeing you all on the night.
