Special Tennis Kit Offer

They say you should never fall in love with a tennis player, as to them, ‘love’ means nothing.

However, as a valued Club member I am sure you will LOVE this tennis kit offer.

ST LogoSeniors Tennis GB has been working with 2nd Serve Ltd. over recent months on a new Sergio Tacchini clothing deal, ensuring that GB teams representing us at the forthcoming ITF World Championships look their very best on court.

This deal is now being made available to all Seniors’ Lawn Tennis Club of Great Britain members. The clothing will be exactly the same as that provided to the GB teams (without "Great Britain" on the back of course).

To take advantage of this very special offer, download the appropriate application PDF Form and send the completed form directly to 2nd Serve. The forms are available via the Member Info/Merchandise Menu link and due to its exclusivity you must be logged in.

For administration purposes, please also send an email to Phil Tovey (pt_project@hotmail.co.uk) if you are purchasing the kit.
