Community

Here at WLTSC we love supporting and taking part in activities with the local community

 

This September, we had our annual Macmillan’s Coffee Morning. There was an appreciable attendance that enjoyed many cuppas and plates of delicious cake.

The money raised helps fund Macmillan services to make sure people with cancer can get the physical, emotional and financial support they need.

Walk for Fun



We had another great Walk for Fun last weekend, raising £200 for Compton Care! Along with Foggy, who organised the event, 41 of our members attended and made the most of the lovely weather in the countryside. After trekking a few hours in the sun, the gang had a Sunday roast.


“It’s nice to get back to a bit of normality.”


Keep peeled, as another walk is coming soon!

WLTSC Attend Vintage Tennis

Some of our current members here at WLTSC can be seen volunteering to support the vintage tennis at Whightwick Manor that was held on Monday 30th August 2021.

It was a fun and exciting new experience for the WLTSC members as all attendees were to play tennis with old vintage tennis rackets as well as helpers being seen dressed from the Victorian ages. A bit of a blast from the past!

Up to 50 amazing junior squash players traveled from around the UK to attend to compete in the Bronze Junior Squash Event. Competitors hailed from Wales, Shropshire, Staffordshire, and the West Midlands as well as from counties further afield.   The ages ranged from  9 – 17 years old and players competed in 8 age categories in a fun and enjoyable competition which also attracted nationally ranked juniors. It was an absolute thrilling day of squash with everyone from players, parents and staff thoroughly enjoying the day as a whole.

WLTSC received incredible positive feedback during and after the event regarding the organisation of the event, our facilities and also our staff. We are incredibly proud of what we achieved on the day and are always striving to do better the next time we host anymore events.
