Great South Run Fundraiser

On 21st October Martin ran The Great South Run to raise money for Portsmouth Downs Syndrome Association.

Thanks to your generous donations Martin raised over £300 to go to this very worthy cause.

The weather couldn't have been better and Martin set a respectable time of 1:21 to complete the 10 mile course.

Mark, Martin's friend (pictured above) is father to Jack who has Downs Syndrome and he was on the road side cheering on the guys all the way!

Tennis Jeannie Box Leagues starting soon!

In February our juniors are about to start lots of internal club match play!

Box leagues are a great way to play social yet competitive tennis against players of a similar age and standard.

The advantage to the leagues is you can arrange your matches at times that suit you. The matches / correspondence will be operated through Tennis Jeannie which is a very cleaver website that does everything from showing your availability, arranging matches then displaying the result once completed.

Match results are going to be posted on our competition tab where there will be a results widget. So get involved a track your progress!

Resurfacing complete

After months of waiting, the tennis courts at The Mountbatten School have now been resurfaced!

The new surface has already been put to test in the recent wet weather and it passed with flying colours!

Thanks to the clever robot and Mr Norton who took the areal shot!

3 Grass Pitch almost complete

After a delayed start earlier in the spring, The Mountbatten School's 3 grass, multi sports pitch is almost compete.

This 'state of the art' pitch will be used all year round for football & hockey clubs across, Romsey, Southampton, Totton & Eling, Winchester and local surrounding areas.

In the next 2-3 weeks the focus will be to the 6 tennis & netball courts of the school to be resurfaced with plans for completion at the start of November. This will be very welcome to us in time for the winter months where a new surface will help sessions to run despite in winter conditions.

Absolute Tennis works very closely The Mountbatten Community Department where we hire the courts from the school and run courses for all the family.
