It’s almost time for one of the banner days in the Carisbrooke Tennis Club calendar – the annual Finals Day!
Our club champions for 2017 will be crowned this Saturday (September 9) but as well as the dénouement to the annual club tournament, there’s also heaps of other family-fun planned for the day.
So while our 15 different men’s, ladies’, mixed, veterans’ and under-17s’ finals are being playing out on the show courts, you can kick back with a drink from the bar and tuck into our free barbecue (from 2pm onwards – extra barbecue added for 2017).
There’s also a free bouncy castle for children to enjoy and the whole family plus friends are very much welcome to come on down on the day to check out what Carisbrooke’s all about.
The action is set to get under way at 10am with the main finals from around 1pm. Trophy presentations are due to take place at around 6pm.
All that remains is for some decent weather for the day. Please note: if the weather is particular bad this Saturday, a reserve date of this Sunday (September 10) is being saved as a back-up plan. Keep your eyes out on your emails and the club’s Facebook page for updates.
The Finals Day roll of honour showing all the participants for 2017 is listed below. To view the latest progress of tournament matches, see our tournament homepage here. Best of luck to all those still in the hunt for some silverware!
We would like to say a big thank you to Drive Vauxhall Leicester, which has kindly agreed to sponsor the event again for 2017.
