Impact of Corona Virus
Obviously, the Corona virus has had a huge impact on all sport and social activities throughout the world. Sadly, Hillside LTC is no exception and for the time being all our organised activies are suspended or cancelled. We have left the ones that had been planned below so that you can see what sort of things would usually be going on at the club at this time of year. Everything will, of course, be updated once we are through the current emergency.
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 date for the next session is: 14th March (more will be arranged for the following months). All lady playing members are welcome.
Details of the Chairman's Evening which will be on Saturday 2nd May will be added here soon.
Competitive Tennis Events
You can download the HLTC Tournament Rules here and a copy is displayed on the clubhouse notice board.
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.
The always popular Quorn Cup parent/child mini-tennis competition will take place on Saturday 28th March from 1.30 pm. Alongside this there will be a fun parent and child competition for those children who are too old to enter the Quorn Cup. More details are on the link at the bottom of this page.
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.
The Start of Season American Tournament will take place on Sunday 19th April starting at 2.30pm. This is a mixed doubles tournament where you change partners every 5 games. It is always great fun and there will be prizes for the winners. It is open to all adult playing members and to all juniors who have played for adult teams. There will be a sign-up poster in the clubhouse nearer the time.
Hillside LTC Championships 2020 – as always this will consist of a range of adult and junior events played over the months leading up to the club Finals Day which will be on Saturday 5th September 2020 starting from 10am. Sign up sheets will be put up in the clubhouse a bit nearer the time.
