HBTC U18 boys celebrating a good win after a close match on a hot day!

Helen's Bay TC held a very successful handicapped tournament on 5th May, which included several new club members. Everyone played three or four mini matches with different partners and then somehow, thanks to a complicated mathematical formula, Cameron emerged the worthy winner. Thanks to everyone who came, enjoyed the tennis, the weather and the tea.



Following a very successful Open Day, HBTC are delighted to announce that we are holding an American Tournament on Saturday 5 May (2-4pm).

Our junior U18 and U14 boys teams have begun their matches successfully. The U14 boys are in a higher division this year having won their division last year. The photo shows some of the U14 squad with their trophy. We wish both teams good luck for their matches in 2018.


We are proud to announce that HBTC has collected our Clubmark Certificate.

Stephen Leach was presented with HBTC's Clubmark Certificate and Banner at Sport Northern Ireland's Celebration Evening in February 2018 at Titanic Belfast. A huge congratulations to all concerned.
