Rutherglen Reformer - - Intimations - Kenny Smith

Kirkhill Lawn Ten­nis Club’s cen­te­nary year is prov­ing to be one to re­mem­ber with cel­e­bra­tions cul­mi­nat­ing in a suc­cess­ful party night.

The sell- out party event was held at Kirkhill Golf Club. Mu­sic came cour­tesy of The House Band and there was a luxury raf­fle with prizes in­clud­ing a spa day at Cruther­land House Ho­tel, din­ner at Burger Meats Bun and Viva Ristorante, jew­ellery from Rox and a per­sonal shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence at Deben­ham’s, amongst many other must-have prizes.

As well as an en­joy­able night for all who came along to the party night, the club raised over £1000 which they plan to in­vest in equip­ment for all its mem­bers to en­joy.

Club pres­i­dent Jacqueline Clark is thrilled the club’s cen­te­nary is be­ing cel­e­brated in style.

She said: “It’s such a big year for our lit­tle club and it’s won­der­ful so many peo­ple want to be part of the cel­e­bra­tions.

“The party night was tremen­dous fun. The House Band were in­cred­i­ble and ev­ery­one who came along well and truly got into the party spirit. Thanks to ev­ery­one who put on their glad rags and danc­ing shoes all in the name of Kirkhill Lawn Ten­nis Club!”

The next event in Kirkhill’s busy cen­te­nary so­cial cal­en­dar is the birth­day cel­e­bra­tion and open day on Satur­day, May 30, at the club’s Whitefield Av­enue Cam­bus­lang lo­ca­tion.

Jacqueline added: “Our open day extends a warm wel­come to all. Past, present or fu­ture mem­bers of KLTC are in­vited to pop along to the club and en­joy a step back in time from the club’s 100-year his­tory.

“We’ll re­live mem­o­ries from the past as well as fun events for the ten­nis fans of to­day. There will be a wooden rac­quet tour­na­ment as well as ac­tiv­i­ties for all the fam­ily to en­joy and of course there will be lots of birth­day cake. Come along and cel­e­brate with Kirkhill. Ev­ery­one’s wel­come.”
