Troon Lawn Tennis Club Winter News
Our Back Court refurbishment has begun. The back courts will now be out of action until the end of January.
Well done to our O.I.R. members who raised over £332 at their recent MacMillan Coffee Morning.
All members are asked to leave their used/old tennis balls in the Clubhouse so that they may be used in children’s backpacks and sent to Malawi. This is the only toy they are allowed to school. It is supported by Mary’s Meals.
Winter coaching continues with coach Brian Knox:

Coaching block 2 will restart on January 11th, 2020.
