GRAND GARDEN PARTY TO CELEBRATE CULLERCOATS’ 125

 

Cullercoats Tennis Club is holding a grand garden party on Saturday 1 September to
celebrate its 125 th anniversary.

All present and former members of the club on Beverley Gardens are invited to come
along to a fun family event from 3pm.

There will be tennis games – both on and off-court – for all ages and people are
encouraged to bring their own food for a barbecue and contribution for a pooled tea.

The club was founded in 1893, the year after residents of Beverley Terrace had
approached the Duke of Northumberland to use land behind their homes, and
opposite St George’s Church, to form a tennis court and croquet lawn.

From those small beginnings, the present-day club has grown to have three flood-lit
artificial grass courts and a refurbished clubhouse with nearly 300 members.

David Bottrill, president of Cullercoats Tennis Club for its 125 th year, said: “We’re
indebted to that small band of residents who had the foresight to set it up and lay the
foundations of the wonderful club we have today.

“Through tough times – notably two world wars and several depressions – our club
has flourished to become one of this area’s most popular, successful and, above all,
friendly.

“I’d like to pay tribute to everyone whose hard work and dedication over the years
has enabled this to happen.

“We would like to invite all who are, and have been, involved in the club in any way
to come along on Saturday 1 September to mark this important milestone – we’ve
much to celebrate.”
