Bubwith Tennis Club

Unfortunately, following LTA and Government guidance Bubwith Tennis Club will be closed from the 5th November and will reopen, hopefully the 2nd December.

The club, along with the LTA and tennis community, has expressed its disappointment with the decision to local MPs but this has little to reverse the decision. The committee continues to believe that tennis can be played in a safe environment when COVID guidelines are followed, and it is vital in helping maintaining both mental and physical health.

As always, the committee will follow LTA guidance and open the courts as soon as possible following any changes.

Yours in sport,

Thanks,

Enjoy the opportunity to play tennis again! We have been strictly following LTA Covid Guidelines, but are happy to say that you are now welcome down at the Club as a member or as a visitor with a member. All we ask is a £3 fee per visitor. We are running coaching sessions for all at the moment too!

Please take a look at the club website for full LTA playing guidelines and what we can offer you down at Bubwith Tennis Club.

Bubwith Tennis Club LTA, was founded many years ago, but has been on its present site since 1963. The club has approximately 110 members. There are three excellent and well maintained artificial grass courts. One court has county standard floodlighting – there is a £1 coin meter in the clubhouse.

The clubhouse was recently extended and modernised in 2016. There are now toilet facilities, a small kitchen area and rackets and balls in the adjacent storeroom. The noticeboard has up to date information posted on as well as press articles.

Throughout the season we have Ladies, Men’s (Intermediate and Team) and Junior coaching sessions as well as Club Nights from May to September on Wednesday evenings at 6.30pm and regular Handicap Tournaments too.

New for 2020, we are setting up a 3rd Mixed team, as we have quite a large pool of available players who are willing to play during the summer evenings. The matches will be played for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd teams on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday  evenings from 6.30 – to about 9.30. Matches are within the York League and Bubwith is about the most southery club. Suppers are held at The White Swan in Bubwith when we have home matches. We are a friendly village club who warmly welcome new members of all ages.

On the afternoon of Saturday, May 18th 2019, Danny Sapsford and Luke Milligan – both Davis Cup pros from Bright Ideas for Tennis, came to share some great tips including how to improve our interception at the net. 40 children and 30 adults participated in the energetic and fun coaching and a lot of other people came to watch, enjoying a bbq, cake and Pimms. Suitably Sporty Ltd  from West Yorkshire, gave us an opportunity to look and feel the part with their wonderful selection of tennis and golf clothing . A perfect way to spend an early summer’s afternoon. Thank you everyone for coming, and a special thanks to Matt Ward from I Can Play Tennis for helping to organise the event.

On Saturday, 21st September 2019 we held our End of Season Handicap Tournament during the day and had our supper at The White Swan in Bubwith, one of our sponsors.

Winter Membership is now available for the tennis club up until 1/5/20.
