Chilham Ashes 2016
1st May 2016 @ 12:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
We are looking for players for the annual tournament against Chilham on Sunday 1st May 2016. This fun event, started in 2014 and hosted by Chilham Tennis Club, is a battle for the ashes of the Tennis Rackets burned by a disgruntled Chilham on the occasion of their first loss. It starts at 12 noon and ends around 5 pm followed by drinks and food at the WoolPack Inn.
The matches are played on Chilham’s courts and on the courts in the lovely castle grounds. We normally enter a mixed, ladies and men’s team but the arrangements tend to be fluid depending upon how many team players there are for both teams. Ideally we would like 6 ladies and 6 men. The tournament is not intended to be too serious – although Bridge has won the Ashes for the last 2 years.
The event is great fun, the location is superb and it’s free. I think it would be fair to say that those who participated in the past thoroughly enjoyed the day as Chilham made us feel very welcome. We are hoping some new faces will enter along with the regulars. I would like to be able to go back to Chilham soon and say that we can raise a team. So If you would like to play please contact me asap.
