As part of phased relaxation of lockdown restrictions, the club re-opened on 29th March (guidance on playing while social distancing measures remain in place can be found on the LTA website). Our 2021/22 season will run from 1st May 2021 to 30th April 2022. For more information and to sign up, see our Membership page.
Monday Club Nights are underway and will run from 5pm to 7:30pm every Monday until the end of September. These are friendly, mix-in sessions and players of all standards are welcome. Non-members are welcome to come to their first Club Night as a free “taster”, if they want to try out the facilities and meet other members before deciding whether to join the club.
Ladies Club Sessions take place on on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10am to 12pm, and on Thursdays from 2pm to 4pm. Please email Di Pearson if you intend to come so that numbers can be managed.
We are planning to hold a Club Open Social Event on Sunday 4th July, from 2:30pm to 5pm. This is an open event for members and non-members. All standards of tennis and all ages are catered for. It will include a “Rusty Rackets” session for returners and beginners alike. Coaches from Banbury Tennis Academy will be running the activities from 2:30pm to 3:30pm. Refreshments will be provided. Non-members who sign up on the day are offered a £5 discount on our membership price.
For a £10 annual subscription, club members can have unlimited use of the ball machine - which needs to be pre-booked with Simon Bright (07973 215750; firstname.lastname@example.org). It's an excellent way to improve your tennis – so if you haven’t tried it why not give it a go?
The machine shoots tennis balls to the player across the net so there is no need to recruit a friend to "feed" practice balls - ideal for "returners" to tennis who need to get back up to speed.
