Purton Tennis Club is going to the the Greyhounds on the 22nd April to raise funds for the club. We have 100 tickets to sell, which with our membership numbers should be fairly easy. So please ask family, friends, and anyone else who may be interested. Tickets are £6.00 per adult and children go free when accompanied by an adult (2 children per adult is the maximum so we’ve been told). 100% of the ticket money goes directly to Purton Tennis Club. Please get selling tickets! Get in touch with a committee member and let us know via whatsapp or email how many tickets you need and we can give you them at a practice, or social night. See below how the event works:
Six teams are pitched against each other at a night at the dogs. Each team is assigned a dog trap for the night and wins points according to the performance of the hounds racing out of their trap for six races. The position the dog finishes in each race translates to points on a league table (7 points for a win, 2nd place 5 points, 3rd place 4 points, 4th place 3 points, 5th place 2 points and 1 point for last place). The team with the most points wins the title of SWINDON STADIUM CLUB CHAMPIONS and receive a special commemorative trophy.
