Matches

We would like to find out who wants to play in league matches -- there is a question on the membership application form about this, but not everyone fills in the form when renewing their membership, and our records are probably incomplete/out-of-date. We have teams entered in the mixed, ladies' and men's leagues. If you would like to play in any of these please contact one of the team captains --- Kate Tagg (mixed team, katet512@gmail.com), Sally Gould (ladies' team, sallyclaireuk@yahoo.co.uk), Andy Storer (men's team, storerandrew@hotmail.com).

Sunday social sessions

The club have decided to trial a Sunday Social session from 4pm-6pm on Sundays for the next 4 weeks, starting Sunday 11th April. The session will aim to be a relaxed opportunity for people to meet and play with others. Everyone is welcome, particularly members and potential members who do not yet access the Club Sessions but wish to gain confidence and play with more people. The session will initially be facilitated by Mike Badman and Carol Taylor. Hope to see you there!

Coaching and junior tennis camps

Shaun will be restarting coaching as soon as possible -- contact him via http://yourtennislocal.co.uk/, Yourtennislocal@gmail.com or text on 07415232192 for more details: adult coaching will be on Wednesdays, junior coaching on Sunday mornings, the junion camps (which run from 9:30 to 3:30) on April 8th, 15th, June 3rd, July 22nd, 29th, August 5th, 19th and 26th (all these dates are Thursdays)

Courts re-opening

The courts will re-open for general play from Monday March 29. This includes singles and doubles, and "organised group activity", which seems to cover club sessions. The LTA guidelines say that singles and doubles is subject to the rule of six, though it is hard to see how that applies, and that a maximum of 12 people *per court* is allowed for organised group activity, which again seems to have little relevance to our standard club sessions. As before, using hand sanitiser before and after playing would be a sensible precaution.

See you all soon. Hope we get a summer of unrestricted tennis and sunshine.

About us

Buxton Tennis Club is part of the Buxton Cricket, Bowls and Tennis club and the site on Park Road was first established by the Cricket Club in 1853. Major tennis tournaments were held in Buxton from 1883 and it was the venue for the All-England Ladies Doubles Tennis Championships until 1951. The current club is the proud heir of this tradition, providing a range of social and competitive tennis for all standards of player.

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.

Interested in joining us? If you already play tennis, why not come along to our club sessions on Saturday mornings, from 9.30 onwards. Non members are welcome to come twice without charge. Or come to our Monday evening sessions, starting at 6pm (these will continue throughout the year now that we have floodlight!). We also 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 have a range of coaching activities to suit everyone from beginners and people who haven't played for years to advanced junior and adult coaching and cardio-tennis. See coaching for details.

The club calendar has full details of the various scheduled sessions--any time that is not booked on this calendar is free.
