Tennis fixture in the USA 2017

Dear Member

We are looking to extend our 2017 fixture list by offering a match in the USA, more specifically Vero Beach Florida, timed for April to avoid their school holiday period. Vero Beach is approximately 100 miles South East of Orlando and 170 miles East of Sarasota.

The tennis event can be sized to accommodate both men and women, the standard will be very competitive and matched to our playing strength in age groups 35+ and upwards (no upper limit has been set). Members who are interested may want to plan an extended trip around the tennis - sightseeing, a Disney family experience or perhaps a Seniors Tounament run by the USTA.

At this stage we are just guaging interest as the event will involve a lot of planning and commitment but I am sure you agree it will be a real coup for our Club. It is likely there will be a reciprocal arrangement in future years.

If you are interested in this exciting opportunity then please email our Hon. Match Secretary Andrew Soul who will be able to send you more information when it becomes available. Andrew's contact details can be found on our Member List.
