Autumn at RLTC

As mentioned at the finals night event, there is plenty going on during the autumn at the club. Next Saturday Oct 19th, from 2-4pm, Phil is organising a free social tournament. Please sign up on the club noticeboard for this as numbers are limited to 24, and there are now only a limited number of spaces left. Those who recall his tournament back in the spring will know what a fun afternoon is in store! Fingers are crossed for some decent weather.

Summer Success for RLTC

May I wish very hearty congratulations to our winning and promoted teams this summer. 115 of our adults played league tennis this summer, and following a comprehensive play off win this weekend, our ladies 1st team have been promoted to the Premier 2 league, so very well done Zara and team. Our mens 1sts, 3rds and 5ths have all won their 2nd successive promotions this summer, so huge congratulations to Ross, Griff and Lee for running those teams so well. Our mens 1sts will be in Premier 1 next season, so there should be some excellent tennis to watch and enjoy. 

Open and Vets Finals Sept 27th and 28th

As there are so many finals to be played, we may schedule some finals for the evening of Friday 27/9 as well as on Saturday 28/9 so please keep both dates free, especially of course if you're playing! Also though, always good to have a good crowd of supporters to watch what promises to be some tip-top tennis.

Please could last year’s winners find, polish & return your trophies to James or Chris at the club. 

There are a total of 14 finals to be played, and we'll be looking for 14 volunteer umpires - please let Chris or James know if you are willing to help.

Club Tournament Finals and Party

Hi All,

Welcome back to those who have been away for their summer holidays, and very many thanks to all those getting tournament matches completed.

The Open and Vets finals will be taking place during the day on 28th September, including plenty of plate finals, so come along and support the matches! 

In the evening there will be a 70s Funk Disco with live band The Funky Love Posse (featuring Chloe on saxophone!) and a barbecue.

Tickets are £10 including:

Teas Today Sat Aug 24th

There are some wonderful cakes left over from yesterday's spectacular spread following Chris's Memorial Service. They will be available in the clubhouse at 4.30pm this afternoon, and contributions from this afternoon's teas will be donated to the charities supported by Chris, namely Tenovus and Velindre.

Teas this Saturday August 17th

I'm delighted to say that teas will again be available at RLTC this Saturday 17th August, 4.30pm. The rugby is on terrestrial tv, (K.O.2.15pm), so can be on the clubhouse tv should there be demand. Tennis, Teas, and International Sport - a perfect Saturday afternoon! My thanks, our thanks of course to all those who help keep the teas tradition going.

Chris Gray

It is with deep sadness that I’m writing to convey the news that after his recent illness, Chris Gray passed away yesterday.  Chris, as all of us who were privileged to know him will testify, was one of the most generous and dedicated members of Radyr Lawn Tennis Club. 

Having joined the club back in the early eighties, he is the only person to have his name on all the honours boards for which he is eligible. On the court, he played for our highest teams, and won all the trophies available in club tournaments, and as recently as summer 2018, helping our 3rd team gain promotion.
