At Hillside LTC we have a wide range of tennis and social events for all ages. A few of them are shown on this page but a lot more goes on at the club. Why not join us and make some new friends!
You can view or download the full version of our current timetable that shows our regular events as well as the special ones listed below but please remember that it is subject to change. The latest version will always be on the link below.
Coming social events include:
Ladies Tennis Afternoons – social tennis followed by refreshments on Saturday afternoons from 2.30pm to 5pm, once each month. The dates for the next sessions are: 8th February and 14th March (more will be arranged for the following months). All lady playing members are welcome.
Our next "Tennis Supper" will be on Friday 24th January and the sign up list is now available in the clubhouse. The format is mix-in tennis from around 6.30pm followed by food and drink in the clubhouse at around 8pm. All club playing members are welcome to join in with the tennis and all members plus family and friends are welcome to join in with the food part of the evening. Cost for the food is £6 each – it's being organised by Stuart and Sally so the food will be good! Come and join in the fun. (Please add your name to the list in the clubhouse if you will be coming to the food part of the evening so that we know numbers for catering.)
Our annual Dinner Dance and presentation evening will be on Saturday 29th February from 7pm at Southport & Ainsdale Golf Club. It will be a delicious three course meal (click here for the menu) with live entertainment and disco provided by Callum Mac who has appeared on TV's The Voice and performed at the Cavern Club. Tickets cost £30 each and are now available from Angela – please book quickly and let her have your choices from the menu. More details are given on the poster in the clubhouse.
Competitive Tennis Events
You can download the HLTC Tournament Rules here and a copy is displayed on the clubhouse notice board.
The rearranged Wardle Tournament (see the Tournament Rules above for details of the format) will now take place on Friday 6th March starting at 6.30pm and a sign up sheet will be put up in the clubhouse nearer the time. This tournament is open to all club playing members and you must enter as a mixed doubles pair whose combined ages add up to at least 90.
The Betty Silvester Tournament (see the Tournament Rules above for details of the format) will take place on Friday 27th March starting at 6.30pm. This is a mixed doubles tournament which you enter as an individual and there is then a completely random draw for a partner. Again, a sign up sheet will be put up on the clubhouse notice board nearer the time.
Unfortunately there will be no Inter-club Floodlit Tournament at Hillside in March this year as the courts are being repainted at some time during the month. It will return in 2021.
Our club Annual General Meeting will take place in the clubhouse at 2pm on Sunday 9th February. It is very important that all club members attend. It will only be a short meeting so why not stay afterwards and play tennis!
