Friendly and social Tennis Team starts 20th April
Formby pair win first Silverware of Season
Phil Gray and Christian Bryan ran out winners in the final of the Hillside floodlit tournament on a cold, breezy and damp night in Ainsdale. They triumphed in a two set victory albeit with a nervy final set tie-break of 14-11.
Hopefully the first of many trophies to come for FLTC this season.

Inaugural Winter Goblin brings top tennis and more to FLTC
In the bleak mid-winter 16 goblins rose from their annual hibernation to assemble at 90 Gores Lane for a Battle Royale the like of which has never been seen before at L37 7DF.
The goblin is normally only seen during the height of summer with a cold beer in one hand and a Dunlop maxply in the other, however on this cold and crisp evening they delighted with a fine display of what can only be described as ‘tarts tennis’.
After a grueling evening the winner’s eventually emerged in the form of the perfect specimens of manhood Simon Bentzen and Phil Gray beating the dynamic duo of Alan ‘Biggie-Smalls’ Biggs and Derek ‘and the Dominoes’ McShane.
Things got a little bit bleary later in the evening as the celebrations continued unabated and as this image clearly demonstrates winner Simon Bentzen certainly cleaned up on the night.
