St Ann’s Tennis will close on Monday 19th September 2022, from 11-2pm, to mark the funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, 1926-2023, and all organised tennis activity will be cancelled that day.
St Ann’s Tennis joins the LTA and the tennis community across Great Britain in paying tribute to Her Majesty The Queen.
Her Majesty dedicated her life to public service throughout her 70 year reign. She was universally admired and respected throughout the country and supported many charities and organisations unstintingly. She was patron of the LTA for many years. She graciously gave up her time to open our own National Tennis Centre at Roehampton and meet our British players in 2007. She visited Sussex several times, including Brighton College, the opening of The Keep (county archive), and Harvey’s Brewery in Lewes. Her loss will be felt across the country and throughout the Commonwealth.
