Berkswell and Balsall Common Tennis Club held its annual club tournament Final’s Day on Sunday 9th September 2012, with action throughout the day as members battled it out for the Club Championships.
This year’s star performer was Jessica Crawley who, aged just 13, defeated first team player and regular finalist Sue Walsh. Jessica showed determination and enthusiasm as she held her nerve to win 7 – 5, 6 – 4.
Berkswell & Balsall Common’s Sports Association is putting on a spooky family-friendly Halloween charity bonfire and fireworks party at The Lant on Meeting House Lane in Balsall Common. The event on Wednesday 31st October represents a departure from the usual annual Guy Fawkes nights at the home of Berkswell Cricket and Tennis Club, as Organising Committee spokesperson Judith Parry-Evans explains:
“We wanted to increase the fun-factor this year and we thought what better way than to combine all the best bits from Halloween and Guy Fawkes night?”
The plan means partygoers will get all the spookiness of Halloween, together with the pyrotechnics of Guy Fawkes night and a mixture of attractions as Judith reveals:
“We’ve got the bonfire and fireworks provided by Halo FX as usual and we’re bringing back the fire-breathers, children’s rides, bouncy castle and hog-roast, but this year we’re adding a spooky fancy dress, along with Halloween prize-games.”
Berkswell and Balsall Common Tennis Club is currently welcoming new members of all ages and abilities. The long-established club is situated at the Lant Sports Ground and Community Centre on Meeting House Lane in Balsall Common.
