Even more on offer at St Leonards and St Ives
As well as the club mornings and evenings, the coaching programme, and the availbilty of courts for booking, the club also offers a lot more both on and off the court.
We have 16 teams representing us in Doubles Leagues. This is made up of 5 Mens teams, 3 Ladies teams, 4 Mixed teams, a Mens & Mixed Vets team and an Over 60s Ladies, with 1 Ladies team playing in a friendly league in the winter. This is a significant achievement for a 4 court club and no other clubs in Dorset enter more teams than us.
Annual Club Tournament (May-Oct)
This is now a major event at our club, with most members entering a least 1 of the 10 events. It is the highlight of our year, culminating in a Finals Day at the beginning of October. Players have the chance to win trophies and have their name etched into history on our Clubhouse Honours Board. We have singles & doubles events ranging from 14 & Under singles to Over 60’s Mixed Doubles
Free Singles & Doubles Ladders for all adults and advanced Juniors.
Many clubs offer very little or nothing for singles play for adults. We are very proud to offer this successful and competitive ladder option for those that particularly love singles play! We have a big mix in terms of ages and abilities, matches are arranged between players so you can pick and choose how frequently and who you want to play. We offer the same option for doubles which is equally popular.
Juniors & Adults
Every year we hold our Junior/Senior Doubles event. This is where our top juniors get to play doubles with our adult members. Prizes are on offer for the winners, as well as refreshments for all. This is a very popular & well attended event, which is particularly enjoyed buy the youngsters, who get to show off their doubles skills against the coaches & other adult members.
Junior Presentation Morning
Every year in May the Juniors have their Annual Presentation Morning. This is the coaches chance to thank our young players and reward their hard work and dedication throughout the year. Many certificates and trophies are awarded for various achievements.
This annual event is always well received and is always packed out with many very happy children.

Throughout the year we hold a number of social events that are always busy whether it be a quiz night, race night or the annual mulled wine and mince pie club night before Christmas bringing a great number of players out on a cold winters evening to enjoy a game and a catch up.
