Annual French Exchange
Acigné is a little town near Rennes in France, and every August Bank Holiday weekend Sherborne Tennis Club members challenge the Acigné Tennis Club in a Tennis Tournament.
Various families host the players, and non-playing partners are most welcome to take in the many events organised. The venue alternates from year to year – the French hosted in 2019 so 2020 is the year when the French will come to us.
2019 saw the Acigné Team setting a very challenging quiz in the beautiful town of Rennes, followed by a swim in the English Channel for those who felt brave enough!
We share meals together, and a grand party is arranged for the Saturday night. It's a fantastic event, with the French enthusiastic to join in all the activities, AND win the cup! 2020 will be our turn!
All players at Sherborne are welcome to join in. There is a grading system, so that fun is had by all!
