- History ☰
Wombourne Tennis Club is a section of the Wombourne Cricket, Tennis & Bowls Club situated on the green in the centre of the village. The tennis section has existed for over 50 years, ever since the grounds were donated to the club for the playing of sport and boasts an ever growing number of members.
The main clubhouse is used by the Tennis, Cricket and Bowls clubs and is host to a number of events throughout the year, such as cabarets, quizzes and dances. Our section is organised by a committee who are elected each year at our annual general meeting. Committee meetings are held regularly and all members are welcome to attend.
We have two teams for both the Men's and Ladies in the Staffordshire Inter Tennis League and a Ladies and Mixed team in the Hereford & Worcester Winter League. Throughout the year, the tennis section hosts a large number of tournaments and events which all members are encouraged to join. Juniors tennis and coaching sessions for a variety of ages are also available.
Be sure to check out our planned summer court timetable in the below document. We have a number of social events and league matches throughout the week.
We are proud to officially announce the start of junior social evenings. These events will be supervised and last until 6pm at which point the courts will open up for all members to play. The next junior social evenings will be May 3rd, June 7th and July 5th.
The dates of this year's captains cup tournament have now been announced:
Men's: May 10th, July 19th
Ladies: May 24th, July 5th
Mixed: June 7th, August 31st
The tournament runs as a series of events where the winner is the player who has the highest average points. After all of the six events have been played the Men's and Ladies player with the best overall average are crowned as the Captains Cup winners.
On yet another beautifully sunny day, the Ken Roberts cup took place amongst the annual Wombourne Carnival. The tournament saw fierce competition with all players showing off their skills but in the end Helen and one of more recent members Owen emerged victorious. A refreshing drink was enjoyed by all at the main clubhouse with the matches for the upcoming Club Championships being drawn.
The club championship matches will be up in the tennis hut and on each of the tournament pages here on our website in the upcoming few days.
