Singles Champions

One or two of you have raised the point that players competing in the singles competition were not attendees at our Tuesday coaching. That is correct – unfortunately there is a separate coaching session in Liverpool that clashes with ours, and some juniors have been invited to attend this. They are still members of Woodvale juniors and can therefore play. Hopefully it shows everyone the standard that can be achieved and gives everyone something to aim at.
