Spooky goings on reported at KLTC on Saturday…..

At 5.30pm on Saturday evening local residents reported seeing vampires, werewolves, skeletons, witches and even a dinosaur! Little did they know it was the KLTC Halloween party.

Our juniors surpassed themselves this year with some spectacular costumes and it was wonderful to see so many of them joining in the fun.

The highlight of the evening had to be watching Team Matt v Team Dave wrapping each of the coaches up as mummies. Pete Wayborn cast the deciding vote which saw Team Dave win by a very small margin. I’m not sure who enjoyed themselves most, Matt, Dave or the kids.

Finally, a big thanks goes to all those involved, Sarah (whose cupcakes wend down a storm), Sue, Matt, Dave and not forgetting the clean up team, Pete and Karen.

The biggest new development in walking sport

Walking Tennis is a slower version of the game; it is tennis, but at a walking pace. The game has been designed so that anyone can play it regardless of age or fitness level.

Walking Tennis is ideal as someone can start gently and build up gradually, aiming to do a little more each session. Regular weight-bearing exercise helps keep bones strong by forcing the bones in the lower half of your body to bear a person’s full weight each time they move. Anyone take part in Walking Tennis will see many benefits: lower heart rate and blood pressure, less fat and more muscle, and better mobility.

Every Friday, from 21st June 2019 to 12 July 2019 at 10.00am
Venue: Knowle Tennis Club
Cost: £4 per session (pay on the day)
