Moorgate Light the Way to a Brighter Future

In 2012, Rotherham Moorgate Tennis Club took a massive step forward with an ambitious improvement project, backed by a grant from Sport England. This saw the resurfacing of all four courts and the addition of floodlights to three of them. Since that time the club have expanded their membershipand had several years of improved performances on the courts with a tennis program designed to enhance the membership experience at every level. In particular, the club has also sought to put out more teams across the region's leagues.

Throughout the 2017/18 season there will be a total of 26 teams, playing in 5 seperate competitions, with the club aiming to maintain, or improve upon their 2016 performance, which saw 5 trophies heading to Rotherham. For the last two years, the club has been looking at ways of lighting the fourth court, to make the club a complete all year round facility, with cost always being a major stumbling block, but in conjunction with their lighting supplier, have come up with a cost effective solution, which will be installed, during this week. The club will then be embarking on a many faceted recruitment drive, looking to expand the membership further, with an ambitious target of 200 members, by the end of the year. The club will take part in several LTA initiatives, throughout the spring and summer, including Tennis Tuesdays, which is aimed at getting more ladies into tennis, the Collective Club Membership Scheme, aimed at families and the Great British Tennis Weekends, where two Open Days will be held, to introduce potential new members to the club and the sport. On the court, the next few weeks will see the Knockout Cup section, of the Winter League and further matches for the unbeaten Mini Green team, with their season culminating in a one day tennis festival, where they will hopefully get the chance to play on the grass courts, at Fulwood. Further details of membership offers and initiatives will follow, over the coming weeks and months.

Moorgate's Mangham is Yorkshire's Number One

Having won several tournaments in the past few years, Dave Mangham from Moorgate, entered the Yorkshire Veterans County Championships, in the unusual position of not being seeded in the top two. After an easy win in his first round match, he played the highly fancied number one seed. Dave won a tight encounter, 10-7, in a championship tie break, before taking on the second seed in the final. He then won another tight match 7-5 7-5, to take the title.

Dave's performances were highlighted by the match referee as the best of a week in which he also reached the final of the men's doubles (partnered with Moorgate Head Coach, Glyn Smith) where they lost a close match against the number one seeds.

Dave then moved on to the British Seniors Grass Court Championships - played at Surbition - with high hopes. He reached the quarter final stage, before having to retire through injury.

Meanwhile, in the only league action, Moorgate travelled to face title rivals Fulwood in the Ladies Late Summer League and unfortunately lost their 100% record. Playing in appalling conditions, Jayne Evans and Diane Watson lost two tight matches; as did Jacki Sheriff and Wendy Whelan; both of their defeats being by virtue of a championship tie break. The team now need to win their final match, against Chesterfield, to win the league.
