School Court Usage

St Anthony's School boys will be using courts 6 & 7 for hockey sessions next week as follows:

  • Monday 11:15-12:15 and 2:15-3:15
  • Wednesday 2:15-3:15
  • Thursday 2:15-3:15

Coaching will probably take the other two courts but the block of 3 will be available for general play.

Leaving drinks for Eliot

Hello everyone,

We are going to be having some leaving drinks for Eliot at 8pm at The Black Lion in West Hampstead (NOT The Black Lion on Kilburn High Road!) next Monday 11th December from 8pm. 
We will take this opportunity to present him with his t-shirt and the kind donations from the members - thank you so much to everyone who has already donated, you've all been so generous, we have collected a fantastic amount.
If anyone still wishes to donate, you can do so via the link below. And don't forget to sign the t-shirt or send me a message to write on it!
Hope to see you next Monday 🥳
Laura Williams

Eliot is moving on

Hi everyone,

We hope that you'll all join in our excitement for Eliot in his new role as a PE teacher starting in January, despite sadness at him moving on from Brondesbury. For the last 5+ years Eliot has been fully devoted to teaching our children (and our grown ups!) the right and wrongs on court, and he has done so with kindness, patience, humour, generosity of course the Brondesbury spirit. He has been an incredible addition to the coaching team and we wish him so well - and hope to see him playing on court in future! 
Given the proximity to Christmas, organising a leaving event just hasn't been possible but we thought a(nother!) collection would be a kind gesture for over half a decade of hard work. If you would like to contribute any amount at all, big or small, I’ve set up a Collectiv pot (you can click here or use the link below) which charges no fee if you do not 'tip'. You don't need to download any apps, you can just pay directly. I will close the link on Monday 4th December.


There is a Brondesbury T-shirt to sign as a memento for him, kept at the club in a bag in the wooden bowl on top of the fridge with some fabric markers. If you want to write a SHORT message when you donate, I can write it on the t-shirt for you if that's easier.


If you have any questions or problems with the link please drop me a What’s App message - 07956 603 936


Please please do forward the link to any members you are in regular contact with who you think might like to contribute.

Thank you so much,
Laura Williams

Court Maintenance

On Wednesday the court surfaces will be power-brushed - the back two between 9:30-11 the nearest two between 11-12:30 and the block of 3 between 12:30-2:30. Hopefully general play will not be too much affected, but please be patient if you have to wait for a court and always follow the court-usage rules. 



Club AGM Sunday

Please come to the Club AGM on Sunday at 7pm to both learn more about the state of the club but also meet other members and make your own contribution. We didn't hold a Tennis AGM this year so this is your opportunity to make any suggestion or request. We are keen to see junior members and/or parents as well as adult members.


Club Tournament Finals Results

The club held its annual adult and children's tournaments on Sunday and we were very lucky the weather was so sunny, albeit a bit colder than a week ago. The standard of play in all events was extremely high. Great food was supplied by club member, Sirous, and his team and many thanks to those who supplied cakes. 

Finals Day this Sunday 🏆

Hi everyone,

After weeks of intense (but friendly) competition, Brondesbury’s tennis champions for 2023 will be decided on Sunday!

The forecast is looking good, so it should be a great day.

Not only will there be some wonderful tennis to watch, but our friend Sirous will be there with his amazing BBQ stand from 1.30pm. Menu items include sausages, burgers, rump steak strips, veggie burgers and veggie sausages and salads. The food is all free, but his mulled wine and Sangria will be sold.

On top of that there will be some show-stopper cakes to enjoy (don’t forget to enter the GBBO, just bring your creation on the day).

The tennis action starts at 12:00, and as a reminder the schedule for the day is below.

If you’re taking part, supporting, or just fancy a free BBQ, please do come along. Remember to come hungry!

To those who are still playing, good luck, and see you all on Sunday.

Dear tennis members, 

A reminder that Sunday 15 October the club will be hosting its Finals Day.

We're also delighted to announce the return of The Great Brondesbury Bake Off. Everyone's welcome to submit a cake, and so please start thinking about a showstopper recipe that might win over our expert judges!

There will also be food on offer from Sirous. Full details to follow in the coming weeks.

Good luck with your remaining matches, and we look forward to seeing you on the 15th.
