Shiplake Tennis Club Teams

Mens’ Teams

Shiplake Tennis Club have two mens’ teams in the Berkshire Summer League, this means that the distances travelled to play a match are not as far as in the winter leagues, when they play in the Oxfordshire League.  The Mens Berks. 1 team  play in Division 5A and is captained by Tim Rose.  The Mens Berks,  2 Team is captained by Richard Ormerod, who also runs the mens team practice session on a Thursday evening.

Womens’ Teams

There are three ladies teams playing in the summer leagues at Shiplake.  One in the Oxfordshire Summer League captained by Janette Verrall and play in Division 4.  Two ladies teams play in the Berkshire Summer League, once again distances are not so distant as in the Oxfordshire League.  The Ladies Berks.  1 Team is captained by Tiina Verran and play in Division 5B and the Ladies Berks. Team  2 is captained by Helma Marlow and play in Division 7A.
