- 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.
Advance notice of Wombourne Tennis Club Open day on Saturday 16th May between 11am-3pm. This event is open to everyone, including non-members. Come along and join in the Junior and Senior tennis activities, including a good workout in a Cardio Tennis session.
Following this evening's announcement it is regrettable, but necessary, to announce that the Tennis courts will officially close with immediate effect. This applies to all coaching activities which are currently organised by the club coach (Dan Nicholson), and to all aspects of social tennis activity.
This closure will initially be for a period of three weeks, and a further communication will be made at that point subject to the government's advice at that time.
I would hope that all members will comply with the recent guidance that has been issued to Stay at Home. This is to protect both yourselves, and the whole general public. The sooner we do this, the sooner we can beat this and resume a sense of normality.
