Racket demonstration session – this Thursday (6th December)

Pete Martin will be at club night his Thursday (6th December) with a range of rackets to try out. If you like any of the rackets you can order from Pete but of course there is no obligation to buy. It’s worth trying some new rackets as each have slightly different characteristics.

There are no courts available this Tuesday due to club matches.
