TV DRAGON Duncan Bannatyne will be sponsoring the Wildmoor Spa Tennis League for 2018.

The Wildmoor club on Alcester Road, then owned by Anthony Bird, had agreed a three-year deal in 2017 but new owner Bannatyne, who has renamed his premises The Bannatyne Spa & Health Club Wildmoor, will continue the support.

The deal for 2019 year will be reviewed at the end of the season.

The league holds its Annual General Meeting next Tuesday, 27th February, from 7.30pm, at the Bidford Bowling Club, Salford Road, Bidford-on-Avon. A near record entry of 47 teams is expected across six divisions, from the Premier League and Divisions One.

This is the fifth year of sponsorship by the Wildmoor Club.

This Men’s Doubles Summer Tennis League covers the South Warwickshire and district areas of the Midlands including parts of Worcestershire and Gloucestershire and also stages an inter-league Charity Cup Final between the winners of this league and the Winter League.

The league also celebrates its 15th season running a Junior League, which begins in March with 16 teams divided into four pools.

This year the Wildmoor League will donate the Charity Cup trophies while the £100 main prize to the charity of choice by the team that wins the final will be donated by the Winter League. The Wildmoor League Secretary, Corin Bishop, will organise the event.

All clubs wishing to enter the league in 2018 are required under the rules to send a representative to the meeting. Free refreshments will be supplied following the event. Any club or potential sponsor requiring further details can contact the League Secretary on 07702 694168 or email swastennis@aol.com.
