The Men’s first team of a Hemel Hempstead tennis club has emerged victorious of the Watford and District Tennis League Division 1 for the 4th consecutive year.
Leverstock Green Lawn Tennis Club (LGLTC), based in Hemel Hempstead, is celebrating yet again the success of one of its teams.
LGLTC’s Men’s first team, who meet up regularly at the club to practice in team training sessions run by the club’s coaches, comprises of Mick Hook, William Anthony Knight, James Droy, Jinesh Shah, Stefano Campana, Marc Hartley, Mark Masters, Stuart R Foster, Addison Petrie, Matthew Appleton, and Rhodri Gruffydd.
The club aims to provide friendly and competitive tennis regardless of age or standard. Valerie Askins, a member and volunteer at the club, hopes to dispel the myth that tennis is both elitist and a summer sport only.
She said: “There are so many opportunities for members to play all year long, and we have divisions and tournaments to suit all abilities. We have teams playing in top divisions as well as teams playing in less competitive and more relaxed divisions.
“And for members who prefer to use tennis as a way of keeping fit but don’t really like playing too competitively, there are several drills every week where players can just turn up and play friendly doubles.”
