Project Clay

Project Clay

Overview

Newmarket Tennis Club is situated in the heart of the town. We have 7 outdoor courts, 3 of which are converted to indoor during the winter season. Indoor facilities and all-weather courts with floodlights enable members to play all year round. The club offers members the comfort of a clubhouse with charm, character and modern facilities.

At the heart of the club is our active program for playing tennis. The club has over 300 members, with teams competing in the Cambridgeshire and Suffolk leagues in all gender categories. The junior section is thriving and the summer coaching program is growing in popularity. Our facilities and membership make us the stand out club in the region.

Newmarket Tennis Club is a community club that relies on income from members and non members, coaching and fundraising events. Like most sporting clubs this income covers the day to day running costs, but when a major upgrade is required we need to look for alternative sources of funding.

Newmarket Tennis Club is looking towards the next 10 year development cycle to upgrade its facilities.

Project Clay

Project Clay is a new initiative in 2020 with the aim of replacing 3 acrylic courts with synthetic clay surfaces. The primary reasons for choosing synthetic clay is the fast drying and drainage capability that allows play all year round; due to the unpredictable English weather this has become the surface of choice for outdoor tennis courts.

The expected costs for the project are in the region of £110,000.

Our plan is to fund the program from multiple sources including development grants, local and county council grants, LTA loans, sponsorship, donations and current income.
