Floodlight Switch-On - September 2019

Huge thanks to Sue Barker for switching on our new floodlights. She made a wonderful speech saying that it was at a small club like Winchcombe where she began her tennis career. 

 

 

Toilet Block and Mains In the Clubhouse

The toilet block is now up and flushing along with electricity in the clubhouse. Huge thanks to everyone who helped, but in particular Martin, Jonna, Charlie and Graham for their contribution in difficult conditions (weather and hangovers). It will make a huge difference to the club's development.

Warner's Budgens Sponsorship

The Club is very pleased to be working with Warner's Budgens who have kindly agreed to provide sponsorship with a focus on junior development, particularly in local schools. Our coach will be introducing juniors to tennis in primary and secondary schools.  We hope to get many more Winchcombe Juniors involved in the sport. 

The Club is very grateful to Warner's Budgens for their support. 

 

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
  • 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.
