A DREAM opportunity to play tennis at Wimbledon is being offered by Barry Athletic Tennis Club to new members
The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club has invited the Barry club to send a team of four players - both competitive and social players - to take part in an exclusive event at Wimbledon in September to honour clubs, like Barry, who have celebrated their centenary.
Barry Athletic is offering any new members the chance to represent the club and grace the hallowed grass courts, and walk in the footsteps of Wimbledon tennis greats.
“This is a tennis player’s dream, to play at Wimbledon and we are offering this chance to all our members.
"If you love tennis we offer the best facilities in the area. We cater for all ages and abilities.
"Our social tennis most evenings means you can along by yourself. Our coaching programmes for young and old also offer a great way to improve your game.” said Andy Green, publicity officer for Barry Athletic Tennis Club.
The club is opening its doors to new and old members, as well as a regular programme of tennis coaching for all ages.
The club provides the best facilities for anyone who loves playing tennis in the Barry area at its attractive location on Barry Island, in the grounds of Barry Athletic Club - just behind the promenade on the Island.
Members can enjoy year-round tennis with the four high quality all weather courts, including one floodlit court.
The club offers the best choice for anyone in the area wanting to enjoy their tennis, including beginners’ tennis, juniors, coaching for juniors and seniors, social tennis, and social activities for members.
As a member of the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) the club’s members can enter a draw for Wimbledon tickets at cost price. While there is no guarantee of a ticket, in previous years most members wanting tickets have been successful. The tickets are strictly for personal use only.
Barry Athletic Tennis Club is run by volunteers with any profits re-invested back into the club’s activities and facilities
The club has a partnership with Tennis Squad Coaching Academy. Its team of tennis coaches delivers award-winning services across South Wales, working with anyone with an interest or passion in tennis offering a fun, safe and educational tennis experience.
With its own pavilion with lounge, kitchen, changing rooms, toilets, and showers, it offers good viewing facilities of activities on courts. Members also have free use of tennis balls.
There is ample free car parking at all times and members can use the facilities of the bar in the nearby Bowls Pavilion.
Barry Tennis Club is affiliated to Tennis Wales, the National Governing Body for tennis in Wales, which is part of the LTA.
