Our coach, Dave Gardner, has obtained a full-time coaching position and will no longer be running sessions for us at Buxton. We are sorry to see him go, but pleased for him that he has found a full-time position, partly because this is at the club where he has played since he was a junior.
But while we are sorry to see Dave move on, we are delighted that Pete Ledbetter, of Matchpoint Management, will be running sessions for us in Dave's place. Pete is planning to run junior sessions on Sunday mornings, as before, and adult sessions on Tuesday evenings.
The junior sessions will start on Sunday the 10th of March. The adults' sessions will start once the clocks go back after Easter, with the start date being the 16th of April. Details of how to book will shortly be available on the Matchpoint website: https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/Matchpointmanagement/Coaching
We are a small but lively tennis club in Buxton. The club
has a proud history, with tennis having been played Buxton since
1853, but we're not just about our heritage, we are an active club
with plenty of tennis played at every level, from beginners to the higher reaches of the
The 3 all-weather courts are set in a beautiful location alongside the
cricket ground and bowling green with open views to the south-west,
and are within easy walking distance of Buxton Town Centre. All three
courts are floodlit, thanks to a donation from Tarmac in 2015, so
you can play in the evenings as well as in the day (and we play in
almost all weathers as well -- club sessions take place unless the
courts are actually iced over!).
Interested in joining us? If you already play tennis, why not come along to one of our club sessions. Non-members are welcome to come twice without charge. Club sessions run on Saturday mornings from 9.30 onwards and on Monday evenings from 6pm (these will continue throughout the year now that we have floodlights!).
We offer the chance to take part in competitive tennis in the Sheffield and District leagues, as well as just playing when you feel like it. We normally run coaching sessions for juniors and for adult beginners/returners, but unfortunately our coach for the last few years is unable to continue and so these sessions have been temporarily cancelled. We are actively looking for a new coach and hope to be able to resume these sessions soon.
The club calendar has full details of the various scheduled sessions--any time that is not booked on this calendar is free.
