Coming up on Sunday 5th March there will be a fun and social tournament using the "Davis Cup" format, starting at 1pm. Teams will be captained by Committee Members, Nev and Liz, who will battle it out over the 2 hours of matches arranged by Head Coach José. You can expect mens, ladies and mixed doubles for all standards of play! No advanced sign-up is required, but please arrive early to be allocated to your team.

Following the tournament there will be a fabulous cream tea, with scones and jam alongside some Prosecco, and of course, tea and coffee. At 3pm the Annual General Meeting will take place. We hope to see you there!

Our Easter Holiday Junior Tennis camps are now available to book online. The camps will run for two weeks, Monday 3rd—Thursday 6th April and Tuesday 11th–Friday 14th April, with separate sessions for 4-8 year olds, 9-10 year olds and 11 years and up. You can sign up for just individual days or the entire week.

Each camp lasts 90 minutes and focuses on having fun, developing team work and of course playing tennis! For more details contact our Head Coach, José or sign up online.

The new term of coaching kicks off this Saturday for Juniors and next Monday (9th) for all adult classes. There are a small number of places available on most courses, so now's a great opportunity to take action on that New Year's resolution to improve your game or get a regular session of healthy, fun exercise in your weekly schedule. Details and online signup.

  • Monday 2nd January – Bank Holiday American Tournament. Take advantage of the extra day before you go back to work to enjoy some fun and friendly festive-themed tennis.
  • Sunday 5th March – AGM & Fun Tournament. This year we'll be running a "Davis Cup" format tournament—with players of all levels competing against each other in two teams—prior to the formal meeting.
  • Saturday 9th September – Finals Day

After a three year COVID-hiatus, our quiz night is back on Saturday 19th November at 7:15pm in the Clubhouse. Quiz Master Keith will pose a range of general knowledge questions to teams of 6, while you enjoy a delicious dinner of chilli with jacket potato (meat or vegan options available) and BYO drinks. You can enter as a pre-arranged team, but on previous occasions most people have formed their team on arrival so just sign up and join the fun!

The cost for this fabulous night of entertainment with your fellow members and their guests is just £12 per-person, including the dinner. We have limited space in the clubhouse so advance sign-up is essential: please refer to the recent email newsletter, or posters in the clubhouse, for details. Non-member guests are very welcome.

It was fantastic to see so many members and supporters at our annual Finals Day on Saturday. The tennis was high quality, enjoyable to watch and played in a lovely spirit of friendly competition, and everyone was sustained by our fantastic barbecue chef. Thank you to everyone who brought a dish or helped organise the event. The results were:

  • Ladies' Singles: Louise Field beat Stephanie Lee 6-2 6-3
  • Mens' Singles: Aaron Hotfelder beat Sean Fynn 6-4 6-7(6) [10-7]

Our annual Club Championships culminates with Finals Day, this year on Saturday 3rd September. Come and watch some great tennis, support your friends and relax with some drinks (BYO) and buffet food.

The first match will begin promptly at 11am, and will again this year be officiated by LTA-supplied Umpires. The Order of Play will be published nearer the time once all the finalists have been confirmed.

There will be a barbecue during the afternoon, £5 or bring a food donation (sweet or savoury), and BYO drinks. If you fancy playing a social set as well as watching, social tennis will be available on courts 4 & 5 but please note that courts 1–3 will not be available for play during the finals. 

We hope you can join us for what is always a tennis and social highlight of the Club calendar–for a taste of the afternoon, check out the photos from last year.
