COVID – 19: In the light of the PM’s announcement last night (23/03/20) , the committee feels it has no option but to close the tennis club with immediate effect , we are sure members will understand this . We would like to send our best wishes and support to all our members at this difficult time.
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.
