Social Events Programme

As members you can look forward to several social events throughout the year. Here's a quick summary of our latest. 


Centenary Celebration Weekend

Bishop's Castle Tennis Club is 100 years old this year!

To celebrate this major milestone, we're planning a fantastic weekend of celebrations at the tennis club on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th July.

This free event will include professional players in a demonstration match, 'have a go' training and coaching sessions open to the whole community, competitions for club members and a party on the Saturday night with a live band.

Further details will follow but in the meantime please save the date and we look forward to celebrating our centenary with you!


Christmas Meal for Members 

Members from the club came together to celebrate the festive season with a Christmas meal, at The Three Tuns in Bishop's Castle.

A great festive time was had by all!


Winner's of the Mixed Doubles

Congratulations go to Roger Oakes and Sally Diplock for winning the Club's Mixed Doubles final this year narrowly beating Luke Williams and Lesley Davis Inglis in what was a thrilling close match with almost 3 hours of great rallies and wonderful play especially given the horrible conditions at the beginning. Well done everyone!



Tennis Club AGM on Tuesday 22nd November 2022

This year’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) for club members was held in Bishop’s Castle Town Hall, followed by a ‘Cheese & Wine’ Social. This was a great opportunity to meet other members and catch up on how our club is progressing.


BCTC Tennis finals day 25 Sept 2022

A sunny day at the end of September saw this year's club finals day after a knock out competition that ran through the summer.

The day kicked off with the Men's Singles final, contested by Josh Blythe and Roger Oakes. In a gripping first set, Josh took the first set on a tie-break, by seven points to five. The momentum then shifted firmly Roger's way and he levelled the match without losing a game in the second set. In the deciding set, the momentum seemed to have shifted back to Josh, as broke serve in the first game and held his own serve, to take a two nil lead. But this was to be the last game Josh won and Roger took the next six games, to win the set and the match; 7 - 6, 0 - 6, 2 - 6.

Next up was the Men's Doubles final, Josh Blythe and Roger Oakes changed from opponents to teammates, as they took on Terry Cooper and David Hedge. In a high quality match, the crowd of spectators was duly entertained by some fine stroke-play and thrilling rallies. But with perhaps the earlier exertions in the Singles final taking its toll on Josh and Roger, it was David and Terry who prevailed, winning in straight sets; 3 - 6, 2 - 6.

In the Women's Doubles final, Sylvia Manson and Pam Sherwood took on Lesley Davis Inglis and Chris Fall. It was a closely fought contest with Lesley and Chris coming out winners.

A great day was had by all players and supporters!
