Triple success for tennis club

Have your say

STOCKSBRIDGE Tennis Club is celebrating a hat-trick of success after finshing winners of the Men’s 5th Division, the Late Summer Men’s 1st Division and Winners of Club of the Year 2011.

A large contingent of the club’s male members attended the Sheffield and District LTA Annual Dinner to collect their two league cups and were left gob-smacked to then be awarded the Club of the Year.

They kept the news secret until club chairman Martin Jackson’s 60th birthday party, when head coach Chris Annable presented the award to a surprised and proud Martin.

Martin said the club success was due to various reasons including support from Stocksbridge Town Council to introduce youngsters to tennis.
