Along with so many local sporting clubs, Beaconsfield Tennis Club is finding the constant lockdowns over the last few months frustrating, however, we would like to thank the tennis club members, coaching staff, students as well as the Beaconsfield community for their patience as we manoeuvre through the uncertainties we are all experiencing. Even though the gates have been locked and courts have been quiet, there has been activity in the background ensuring when the doors open again new activities are available for our members.
