She rallies is a Judy Murray led initiative where female ambassadors are trained by Judy to the train other females. With the hope to encourage more girls to try tennis.
On 25th June 10 ladies from all over the county attended Norfolk’s first ‘little miss hits’ Course. This course is aimed to teach females to deliver non technical fun starter tennis sessions to 5-8year old girls.
We had a great mixture of coaches, assistants, parents and teachers. The group worked brilliantly together and understood the concept of the course very quickly. For details of future courses please contact Kim Burgess on firstname.lastname@example.org
Cromer Tennis Club recently hosted a corporate tennis event for Norfolk Tennis. 8 teams each consisting of 4 players enjoyed a sunny, although rather chilly afternoon on the beautiful grass courts. Teams were made up of local business people and senior Norfolk players. Delicious cakes and tea followed by an evening bar-b-que were provided by the club. The event was won by the ‘Monday Nighters’, a team made up from a group of eight players that have played together for many years!
The event raised in excess of £2000 towards the Norfolk Tennis Schools project. Stuart Silvester, Norfolk Tennis Schools Co-ordinator said ‘We are extremely grateful to participants and also the sponsors, Norfolk Homes, Icarus Hines the butcher and Barclays Bank for supporting this event. Cromer Tennis Club were also generous with their time and contributions in making the afternoon such a success. The money will allow us to expand the thriving schools programme in to new areas of the County’.
Monday Nighters – Richard Elliott, Johnny Chadd, Hugh Beevor and Chris Bradley-Watson

A wonderful day of tennis on the grass !
Sunday 1st July saw the clash of the counties, Suffolk Titan Tennis players travelled to Cromer tennis club to take on both Cromer and Tennis Edge players in this charity tournament.
Over 70 players attended and participated in a total of 90 matches on Sunday afternoon, all basking in the glorious weather. Families arrived in their car loads to enjoy an afternoon of tennis spectating washed down with a delicious BBQ and refreshing beverages from the bar.
From player entry fees and raffle a total of £1,460 was raised for Cancer Research UK, a cause very close to the heart of Paul Hope, director of Titan Tennis who came up with the idea of this Charity Event.
The afternoon saw some fantastic matches, some players playing on grass for the very first time. There were some very close matches, running into three sets and tie breaks. Every match shows fun, sportsmanship and skill. If the players weren’t competing then they were having fun on the mini courts.
The end of the tournament signalled time for the parents and coaches to pick up their rackets and take to the courts with Ross Murray from Cromer and Marco Mitev-Will from Titan battling it out on court, followed by Marco and Asa Sumner-Keens in a very close three setter. Dads also participated with doubles matches against coaches and one another.
A fantastic afternoon, all in aid of a fantastic charity.
