Tina Goes to Wimbledon!

Last Tuesday, 20th August 2019, one of Crowthorne Tennis Club’s top players went to Wimbledon.  Not particularly unusual, you might think, lots of us have looked round the All England Club.  But read on… Tina Stern actually played at Wimbledon!

Phillips & Blatchford retain title

John Phillips and Jon Blatchford retained their Men’s Doubles title after an hour of scintillating tennis on a damp Sunday morning at Crowthorne Tennis Club.  It was a match that anyone who was there will have been glad to have witnessed; with the bar raised high after a week of watching Wimbledon, some of the rallies had to be seen to be believed, mixing power with guile and fine technique.
