More Teams, More Courts, More Progress

Unfortunately, we were unable to enter a Women’s team for the South & Mid Cheshire Summer Tennis League due to injury and illness, so we will try again for 2018. However, we are entering a Men’s D team which will start in the fifth division. This will provide the perfect opportunity for those who are wanting to start playing more competitive tennis (both adults and juniors). Steve Harris will be captaining this team. Please contact him on 07470216884 if you are interested in playing for the D team.

The Club has also been liaising with Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWAC) about the plans for our Club and the other two sets of courts (two hard and two grass) that have been previously operated by the Council. Unfortunately, these have been significantly underused for the past several years. As both parties want to see these courts used positively again, CWAC has turned over the management of the middle two hard courts to our Club after cleaning and repainting them. They have also replaced the fencing around the grass courts and are working to get the grass courts ready for use in the summer! The Club is hoping to take over the management of all six courts in the near future when our lease is renewed. We really appreciate all the hard work and ongoing support from CWAC as we continue with our funding applications to further the Club’s development.

As well as having a membership scheme at the Club, we now also have a pay and play scheme for non-members who can book a court and play for £6 per hour per court. We are just working on the booking system now to make it as easy and simple as possible for all involved.
