Slazenger Sports & Social Club
Slazenger Sports & Social Club, Addingford, Horbury
Slazenger is a name synonimous with tennis and the club can trace its roots back to its time as a destination for the workers of Slazenger Sports Company based at Horbury Bridge. Since its original founding, the parent company has come and gone from the area, but the name is retained in the independent club.
The ground itself was used for a time without a permanent clubhouse. However, this was fixed in 1950, when the ground was officially opened by Mrs Slazenger. An exhibition tennis game was performed by Fred Perry and Dan Maskill on the 'En Tout Cas' new red shale courts. In 1997, the club changed further as the red shale surfaced tennis courts were replaced with a state-of-the-art acyclic surface; unique in the Wakefield District. Additionally, new shower and changing facilities, as well as car parking were constructed.
These 3 high quality hard surface tennis courts are available to book throughout the year on a pay and play basis and open to everyone. Alternatively become a Tennis Member allowing 'free use' of the courts. There are very competitive rates for Adults, Family, Students, Junior, Child Members.
We have an increasing number of Members and next year we will be hosting a number of Club days to bring people together, perhaps arrange some friendly matches and enter a team into the League. Please consider joining us.
The club has a Safeguarding policy, which is available on request.
The Slazenger clubhouse is also available to use, offering bar and family friendly atmosphere, welcoming to people of all ages. It has a separate members area to the rear, and an additional conservatory area facing the lawn, gardens and children’s play area.
The conservatory and main function room can be booked out for private functions.
