Hingham Tennis opened in May 2016. £91,000 of funding enabled us to transform a dilapidated, unused space into a tennis club for Hingham and the surrounding villages. A small dedicated committee of 3 (Lindsey Read, Emily Cary and Simon Undershill) set about raising funds and getting the club up and running.
We have two floodlit hard courts surfaced with non-slip porous macadam, and a fantastic 'Tennis Hut' club premises adjacent to the courts for players and spectators. Our aim is to make Hingham Tennis a welcoming, inclusive club that will appeal to tennis enthusiasts of all ages and abilities.
The club really took off with over 200 members in year one. In recognition of the success and of the hardwork and ethusiasum of the club founders Hingham Tennis were delighted to be awarded the LTA Club of the Year Award 2016-17. This was a regognition at national level of the club's success.
Hingham tennis founders were united in their desire to create a local, inclusive tennis facility that everyone can enjoy with friends and family. None of us are fantastic tennis players (in fact Lindsey, Emily and Simon had never even been members of a tennis club before) but this has helped them approach this project with open minds. They wanted to get away from the traditional, somewhat stuffy image that tennis clubs can have, and to make sure all our members can improve and thrive without pressure. Hopefully we have achieved this and can continue in this vein in the long term.
Hingham Tennis has a full weekly timetable for both adults and juniors, and we run regular social events to get everyone together. Check for all the details on the relevant tabs on the website and like our facebook page for regular updates on club activites.
