Adios Jane Francis

Jane Francis is off to Spain. Is this a permanent move? “Oh yes. I am moving lock, stock and two smoking barrels,” she tells us.

She will be reuniting with our man in Almeria Alan Sanchez, and much year-round tennis beckons. Good luck to them both.

We’ll miss Jane’s photographic skills, her willingness to muck in, and her competitive contribution to Parks League tennis. Most of you will be familiar with her forthright, sometimes acerbic and often hilarious on-court banter. Heaven help you if you lost track of the score on her watch – you knew you were in a game when Jane Francis was playing! Her last official appearance will be this Saturday’s Mixed 4/3 tournament. Drop by and say ‘adios’
