tennis club celebrates St Patrick's Day
Patrick's Day was celebrated with a night of Irish-themed fun
at a Burnham-On-Sea tennis club at the weekend.
of the Avenue Tennis Club enjoyed an air guitar performance from
youngsters James Cameron, Cameron and Jarrod Nell during the evening,
coach Vinny Duddy said the night was enjoyed and he praised the
efforts of club members Julie Cameron, Lynn O Dell and Jane Sanders
who spent a lot of time preparing, serving and clearing up afterwards.
food on the evening was excellent with dumplings and Irish Stew
followed by Baileys Bread and Butter Pudding which, at £8
for adults and £4 for children, was excellent value as this
also included the cost of a disco.
the club's 'Lazy Town Tennis Party' was severely impacted by the
poor weather on Friday night and therefore was not well attended.
Duddy said the rain just kept falling right up to 6.30pm and therefore
most people decided to stay in and support Sport Relief on TV.
However, several youngsters did attend and made the effort to
get sponsored, in particular Liam Reddish who almost filled up
his sponsorship sheet.
next event is an Easter junior tennis camp at the club, which
be run from 12th 16th April and places can be booked through
the club on 01278 782758.
