Pres­i­dent marks 90th birth­day

CHAL­FONT ST P

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

CHAL­FONT St Peter Ten­nis Club marked the 90th birth­day of long-serv­ing pres­i­dent John Dennis with a cel­e­bra­tion – and a ten­nis-themed cake.

Dennis has been club pres­i­dent of the Gravel Hill-based club for many years and he and his wife Doreen have been play­ing mem­bers since 1952.

He has over­seen many changes at the club, not least its fa­cil­i­ties, which have been trans­formed from a wooden build­ing with an out­side toi­let and two courts to the mod­ern club­house and fa­cil­i­ties, with four courts, of to­day.

He was a stal­wart of the men’s team for many years and only gave up ten­nis re­cently, due to health prob­lems. His cel­e­bra­tion was held last Thurs­day.
