Hello everyone!! I’m Jane Gadsby, and I have been on the Tournament committee for longer than I can remember, but over 30 years!! My life outside work revolves around tennis, playing myself and encouraging others to take up and develop their own skills. I have played tennis at County level from Junior to veteran,. I am always willing to go the extra mile to ensure you enjoy your tennis at our tournament. I look forward to joining you in a week of tennis, fun and friendship.
Hello. I’m Peter and I have been on the committee for more than 5 years and I consider it to be a privilege to be part of this team. I am a keen tennis player and play for Carisbrooke LTC, for more than 20 years and seemingly cannon fodder for the upcoming youngsters! I started playing at 40 after ferrying my two sons across the county and decided that playing was more fun than watching.
My main pleasure from tennis is watching and playing against the youngsters and seeing how this great game can help them develop into not just a good tennis player but also mature adults with good life values.
