Sad farewell to Viv

Woodland Lawn Tennis Club said a sad farewell to its coach of nearly 20 years, Viv Barber.

WOODLAND Lawn Tennis Club said a sad farewell to its coach of nearly 20 years, Viv Barber.

The 50 or so juniors who regularly attend the Saturday morning coaching sessions had managed to keep her surprise party a secret for the past month. Normal coaching activities were abandoned in favour of tennis themed games.

The three ball, two court match between the Murray team and the Djokavic team proved to be extremely popular as did the Smartie tennis.

Club chairman, Les Treen, thanked Viv for all of her hard work over the years and presented her with a gift and a cake. He said: “Viv has been an invaluable member of the Woodland coaching team for many years and we shall all miss her greatly.”
