Team Report Spring 2019

Our Aegon teams were in action over the spring. The Men’s first team, having been promoted the year before, managed a very respectable mid-table finish in division 4 and will look to improve further next season. Well done to the players involved: Simon Burgess, Chris Keating, Mike Needham, Ashley Horsman, Arthur Ewins, Robin Mcalpine, Dominic Sandy & Shaun Malcolm.

For the first time, we also entered a new Men’s second team, competing in only one division lower than our first team in division 5. The season proved to be difficult, but we look forward to a more competitive league next year. Well done to all those involved: Taegun Kim, Chris Smith, Colin Jones, Russell Vovsey, Adam Tomes, Joshua Marshall, Ashley Horsman, Bryan Nielsen & Jack Harvey.

We also entered a U14 Boys team in the South East Premier Division. This is the highest possible level, with a 1st place finish giving qualification to the National Finals. Cheam LTC finished runners up in the division after winning 3 out of 4 matches. Well done to the team on a fantastic result, despite only just missing out on the National Finals. The players involved were Robin Mcalpine, James Beaven, Ryan Papazov, Arthur Ewins & Callum Dickson.

Club Time

Come and play some doubles at Club Time which occurs on Wednesday & Saturday at Cheam LTC. 

Performance Centre Award

We have some exciting news to share with you all which will form part of the club vision into the future.

As you know Shaun Malcolm has been working very hard under Amit’s coaching company to deliver top quality coaching to a group of talented juniors at Cheam LTC. Many of these juniors are ranked inside the top 10 for Surrey for their respective age groups.   

Off the back of this and the fact that our performance programme has grown to be one of the best in the area, the LTA has awarded Cheam LTC Performance Centre status for Surrey, an achievement matched only by 12 other clubs in the county.

Huge congratulations to all those involved, including the players and parents. We are very proud to have been awarded this status and look forward to displaying a special golden plaque outside the hut.

Our special thanks go to Shaun for making this happen and ensuring our coaching is among the best available.  

Stand up to Cancer Charity American Tournament

On Bank Holiday Monday (26th August), we will be running an American tournament with the intention to donate the proceeds to stand up to cancer.

1 in 3 of us can expect sadly to have cancer during our lifetime and we would like to show our support to the excellent research being done in this field. The theme will be blue and pink to represent men’s and ladies’ cancers so please dress accordingly.

The event will start at 2pm at Cheam LTC.  All members welcome, including juniors!

An American tournament is a round robin doubles competition in which participants are initially paired at random. Timed rounds are played on a rotational basis and there are small prizes for the players who win the most games overall as well as the runners up. Anyone can play in an American tournament irrespective of the playing standard.

Entry is £5, but if you would like to give a further donation please feel free. All proceeds will go to charity.  

Please email secretary@cheamtennisclub.co.uk to sign up for this event.

We would love to see you there.
