There is also a proposal to amend the Club's constitution in two respects:

1. to increase its borrowing limit from £10,000 to £15,000 in preparation for the floodlighting project. 

2. to allow it to participate in the Landfill Communities Fund which offers grants to not-for-profit organisations such as our own.

Social tennis - Sundays 10am to noon 

Social tennis has been really active all through the summer and we expect it to keep going through the winter, weather permitting.  We try to play 7 games with each four and then mix up partners and opposition. A great opportunity to meet and play against a range of opponents.  Just turn up and play.

Our Whatsapp WTC Social group is a good way to find out about social play.  You can also use it to find out whether other members would like a hit. If you would like to be added to the Whatsapp group just email us at winchcombetennis@gmail.com.

 

**** Junior Coaching - starting up again on Saturday 6th January 2018- See "Coaching" section for details

Over the Winter we are running a wide range of junior coaching sessions from age 5 upwards in Winchcombe Sports Hall, so we are never going to get rained off! Please check the Coaching section for times, dates, ages and costs.  You can sign up and pay online. Places are limited!

 

Court Booking

Members can now book courts using this website or using the Clubspark Booking App. 

We must always remember that we are guests of the school. We are keen to get off to a good start to what we hope will be a long and happy relationship! We therefore encourage all members to follow a few simple rules:

  • It is essential that you book the courts before use
  • You must never visit the courts or school property during school hours
  • Please look after the facilities.  

Please leave the courts in a tidy and secure state

We expect there will be some teething problems so please bear with us when these crop up. We will do our best to sort out issues as quickly as possible. All feedback will be gratefully received.

 

Subscriptions

We have now updated our subscriptions for next year. We have tried to make them genuinely affordable and hope that as many of you as possible will join up. We think they represent excellent value with opportunities for social sessions, coaching, and matchplay in addition to friendly matches between members. We hope there will be something for everyone.  We will be using some of our membership income to help pay for coaching at the school. This year, for the first time, the school has entered three teams in the Aegon school competition. 
 

Teams

We have entered three teams into the Gloucestershire Summer Leagues – two men’s teams and one ladies. They had a great first season with the Ladies and Men's B teams getting promotion. We are taking a break over the winter, but hoping to enter even more teams next year. Please feel free to email us at leaguewtc@gmail.com if you would like to take part.
