Phoebe Rawcliffe and Flynn Thomson, Jack Petchey Achievement Award winners in January, combined their award to fund an Exhibition Doubles match at the club on Weds 11 March.

The 4 guest players, James Lauder, Victor Liew, Matthew Widdicombe and AP’s own Angus Pedersen who had won multiple titles between them, thoroughly entertained all those who attended.

The sheer speed of the smashes and the outstanding defence captivated the club’s players. Even the knock up was entertaining.

After the match, the club players could challenge our guest players seeing if they could return any of their smashes.

James Lauder from Ashaway also gave the players a chance to try out a range of Ashaway rackets.
