This July six teams of 8 players, fought hard to win the 'Dame Dallow Cup'. After an all day tournament, the Cup was won by the 'Wonder Racketeers' who succesfully took the cup from the reigning holders, 'Ace-Holes'.
They celebrated their win in style, with the help of Barefoot Bubbly & Wine.
There were a number of spectators who came down to support the players and join in the summer party.
The party went on throughout the beautifully hot summer night and it was time for players and spectators to dance and photobooth, thanks to Showtime Photo Booth.
Our favourite time of year is the summer, where we hold the tennis tournament and summer party in one large mental day of silliness.
The event raised money for The Albert Kennedy Trust, a homeless youth LGBT charity. Thank you to all those who bought tickets, donated to support them.
Olivia Travel company kindly donated an exclusive all inclusive holiday for 2 to Mexico. The winning bidder in the silent auction is off to Club Med resort in November to meet other women at the fantastic resort. Thank you Olivia!
Each year we spend a long weekend in Spain, having a great laugh.
The weekend started as a tennis coaching extravaganza ahead of the July Tennis tournament and has morphed into a tennis golf and spa weekend.
La Manga has world class sports facilities and plenty of restaurants and bars to keep everyone happy. There is a Weekend Warrior course for tennis players that has 10 hours of coaching over 3 days. For the beginner golfers there is 6 hours of golf tuition.
The weekend is designed that you arrange the day, be it the spa, the pool, golf tuition, game of golf, tennis coaching, mountain biking etc. The evening we arrange drinks and dinner around the resort where the whole group of us can get together.
Catching the sun, playing sports with new people and making friends is what this weekend is all about. Couples and singles come along, we always make sure those on their own are OK and not left to drink at the champagne breakfast every day on their own.

Dame Dallow Cup - Citypink Tennis Tournament 2014
During the Winter and Spring we put players together so they can keep playing and socialising! See the tennis page. It is a very sociable crowd and the emphasis is on having fun. The Dame Dallow Summer Tennis Tournament is in July at Paddington Sports Club, where this 8 players per team are challenging fellow members for the hallowed cup. This tournament is the largest lesbian tennis gathering in Europe and the largest fun event too. It's not about LTA ratings it's all about getting women back into tennis and sport with the emphasis on enjoyment.
Those wanting to learn to play golf we take women for a beginners course of golf, 6 hours tuition over three days in the sunshine of Spain. Our next weekend away is in May 2015 at La Manga.
Each year we take a group of tennis and golf players to Spain for some fun. Our tennis 'pros' in Ponto Romano, Marbella
