Testimonials

Still debating? Here's what a couple of our recent new members have to say about the club:

I’ve been bowled over by the friendliness of EALTS. In just a few weeks since joining, I’ve met lots of lovely people and my diary is crammed full with singles and doubles fixtures! I’ve been made to feel so welcome, and what’s particularly nice is there are players of all standards, so I don’t feel I’m not “good enough” to be in a club. Playing on grass is a real joy – especially playing on grass in the glorious surroundings of leafy Edgbaston, with The Birmingham Botanical Gardens right next door. If I’d known before what fun it would be to be to join a tennis club, I’d have done it a long time ago! Ros Dodd (May 2020)

Having been a member of EALTS for a short period of time I am keen to share my experience to those considering membership. Prior to joining I was given the opportunity to take a look around the club and the courts. Situated next to the Botanical Gardens, the setting of EALTS is beautiful with its 6 grass courts (at the time of writing 2 were not in use); 2 astro courts (which are being resurfaced in August 2020); 2 clay courts and 2 shale courts. 

Having made the decision to become a member, the process to do so was seamless with the completion of a simple membership form and payment of the membership fee. I was provided with a coaching lesson as part of my membership which I immediately took advantage of with one of the club's four 2020 coaches - Holly Reid (whom I can't recommend enough). 

My membership also triggered a series of regular communications from the club including an impressive 24-page information booklet; a members directory (which is like the holy grail for a new member); and emails detailing social events. 

The EALTS communications and the welcome from the club's organisers/ volunteers and existing members are second to none - a lot of neighbouring tennis clubs could learn a lot. In my opinion EALTS are like a grand slam winner with the grace of Federer; the passion of Nadal; the organisation of Djokovic; the positivity of Serena and the hunger of Halep! Raj Bector (May 2020)
