									                 HILDEN TENNIS CLUB PRESIDENT’S DAY
Hilden Tennis Club held their Annual Presidents day on Saturday 28.8.10. Twenty seven
finals were played in a rather dull but warm day watched by many enthusiastic parents and
grandparents. Afterwards a buffet and presentation of prizes was held in the clubhouse, over
100 children, parents, grandparents and members attended.

Also present were many of our past Presidents and Vice Presidents, it was lovely to see
them all there enjoying the tennis, and on a special note, and I think it was a first, certainly
for Hilden Tennis Club, a husband and wife team, Letty and George Lucas – Letty is the
President of Tennis Ireland and George is the President of Ulster Tennis, it was great to
have them both here. Letty made a speech reminiscing of her days she spent at the club
both as a badminton and tennis player.

Our President Sadie Meban presented the prizes to all the winners and runners-up.Had
Sadie decided to run as President for a third year we would have had to purchase a stool to
give her more height as most of the children were taller than her and she was getting a sore
neck looking up to them all.

This year the club decided to take some of the pressure of our ladies and brought in outside
caterers, Niall Ervine was the caterer for the day and he served a fabulous buffet meal
enjoyed by all. Special mention must go to our ladies and gents captains Martin Mail and
Sandra Orr, also Emma Black and the rest of the team for all their work during the season.
