Condolences - Ivar McGrath Boden

The Seniors' Lawn Tennis Club of Great Britain would like to acknowledge with great sadness the death of our Life Vice President Ivar Boden on the 8th August, aged 93 and a Club member since 1975. 

Ivar was a charming and approachable man. His rational thinking always influential at SLTC Committee meetings and specifically during his tenures as Chairman (1994 - 1995) and President (2005 - 2014). He became Life Vice President and Patron in 2014.

He will be lovingly remembered, sadly missed and our thoughts at this time are very much with his close family and many friends.

Mass in celebration of Ivar's life will be held in Dublin on a date to be announced.

The team will fly to Dublin Fri 11th and return Sun 13th Nov.

Match drawn vs PSOB

An enjoyable match took place at Reeds School in Cobham.

PSOB, as usual, turned out an excellent first pair - quicker, fitter, younger (need we say more?) that proved impossible to beat on the day. However, a great comeback by Mike Dawe and Andrew Soul enabled the Club to attain an honourable last-rubber win to leave the match result at 2-2.
