50+ Christmas Festivities 2016

The 50+ players, who play together every Wednesday morning at Totally Tennis, enjoyed their now annual Christmas Party after their session last week with lots of festive food and a glass of bubbly or two which added to the yuletide cheer. The on-court session was led by coaches James Macintosh and George Thomas who were then joined by other members of the coaching team to enjoy the party and celebrate another great year of tennis with the players as well as the forthcoming Christmas season. There were even a few Christmas jumpers! Cheers to all the players and we look forward to seeing you all again in 2017.
