Members of a tennis club located between Palmers Green and Southgate are celebrating their second award this year and can now boast of having a coach who is now among the best qualified in the area. What's more, the quality of the coffee served in the club's café has received the ultimate accolade from one of its members.

With help from Sport England and its members, Mayfield Tennis Club has four brand new state of the art Tiger Turf courts.

Mayfield Tennis Club has a wonderful record of supporting wheelchair, disabled and senior players and of raising money for charity. But now it needs to raise funds for itseelf, to replace its courts. A crowdfunder is being used and offers some excellent rewards provided by local businesses and members.

An 8-week low-cost fitness programme starting next week will help people get through the stressful times that we are experiencing. The outdoor sessions will not just be inexpensive (only £5 for 45 minutes), but are designed to suit people of all ages and fitness levels and fit into people's busy schedules - the classes will be held four days a week at various times of day.

Mayfield Tennis and Sports Club is promising a fun-packed day for the local community on Saturday 30th April. There'll be a chance to share a court with professionals and to try out other sports, plus activities for kids. Money raised will go towards new courts and the launch of tennis coaching for disabled people.

Refurbishment of the netball and tennis courts in Broomfield Park is now complete. The work to upgrade the nine courts was funded by Enfield Council, Sport England and the London Marathon Charitable Trust.

The latest addition to Age UK Enfield's extensive Fit for Life programme is a weekly session for over-50s who would like to gain (or regain) their confidence on a bike (or trike) so that they can start benefiting from this healthy and enjoyable leisure activity and means of transport. There are also schemes in Enfield which provide free training sessions (all ages) or can pair you up with an experienced rider.

Are you looking for something new for your child/ren to try during the summer holidays? Then why not try squash at Southgate Squash & Racketball Club at the Walker Ground.?We have a whole list of sessions suitable for players of all ages and abilities. The sessions offered by Barnet and Enfield councils are free.......

Arnos Bowling Club will be reopening on 24th April, when they will be holding an open day for visitors. It's played in the open air and is a non-contact sport.

The 71st year of the North London Netball League's presence in Palmers Green might herald a (literally) brighter future for netball in our part of the capital, or it could be the League's final season - it all hangs on a vote that will be taken at next month's meeting of Enfield's planning committee. Your voice too might help sway the committee members in favour of granting planning permission for an upgrade to the courts which has the full support of the Friends of Broomfield Park.
