Members of Melrose Waverley Tennis Club gathered in the clubhouse for the Annual Presentation of trophies.

The club was delighted to welcome Mrs Val Miller to present the cups.

Mrs Miller, vice chair of Melrose Community Council, is a valued supporter of our club.

The prize winners were worthy recipients of their trophies having played many close matches on Finals' Day This was a result of well supported and enjoyable club championships played over the summer months.

At the A.GM the retiring president, Dr Maung Aye talked about a very successful year for the club.

Members had enjoyed the results of a project that had improved the exterior and interior layout of the club.

At present the interior is being developed into a more comfortable and attractive community space.

A grant from the William Trust had helped with funding this.

The club had fielded teams in all Tennis Borders' Leagues. Large numbers of children of all ages take part in daily coaching lessons with club coach Ian Reilly and social tennis has been very well supported this year with increasing numbers turning out for all club nights and mornings.

Through them the club provides opportunities for all ages and abilities to play tennis.Members enjoy other social activities and are now looking forward to the Annual Quiz Night to be held in Darnick Village Hall on Friday, November 24 at 7.30pm. Look out for more information about this in the paper next week.
