Rome Eurogames update

Updated: Dec 9, 2019

Graham Mather and I represented the club at this years Eurogames Tennis competition, joining over 2000 participants, from all over world in a great fun multisport LGBTQ+ sporting event.

The courts, the hosting at Yellow Roma tennis club and the host city were all totes fabuloso and a great time was had by all. I am delighted to report that Graham had a valiant battle in the Men's Doubles C semi finals losing only in a dramatic match in the super tie break. Unlucky Graham, you are definitely a drama magnet after that one I think! I was a little more fortunate and despite the heat (and maybe because of the copious amounts of prosecco consumed) managed to bag a bronze in both the mixed and women's A/B.

Eurogames 2020 is set to take place in Dusseldorf in 2020 with registration now open. Well worth a visit to Germany, as there are so many other LGBTQ+ sports represented as well as tennis.

Northern Aces and the GLTA got me back into tennis after an 18 year break. I'm now fitter and happier than I've ever been, and playing the best tennis in my life.

After 20 years away, thinking gay men weren’t supposed to play tennis, I finally found somewhere to play and be myself. I’ve won a few tournaments and even better found some great friends.

I came across Northern Aces on social media, I had no idea LGBT clubs were a thing. I now travel from North Yorkshire monthly for the social session which is always worth the journey.
