2021: Tennis is Back!

A Very Happy New Year to Everyone associated with the Club from The Commitee!

I’m sure everyone is very keen to get back onto the court and that we have missed each other greatly! The great news is with the planned easing of lockdown measures from the government and the guidelines from the LTA; we can welcome back tennis as of the 29th March!

Following guidance on organised outdoor sports activities the club is able to confirm group sessions will commence in the form of our regular Wednesday Club Nights from the 31st March. There are also Womens Tennis sessions from Saturday 3rd April & Mens Tennis sessions on Sundays beginning 4th April. These allow for more than 6 people to play on courts in an organised fashion.

The courts are obviously still open (from the 29th) to all members inline with current regulations outside of these sessions. Meaning no more than groups of 6 may meet for private play.

The even better news is we are now offering a reduced rate for membership! We have done this due to the courts being out of action and reflect the time lost during the first part of 2021.

The new rates are on the Membership page and guidance on how to send your form to the treasurer.

Thank you to those who have already paid* and please can we remind you that you MUST be a paid up member to play on the courts.

A WARM WELCOME BACK! – The Wilberfoss Tennis Club Committee


Court Usage Update! Doubles Play!

Hello to all members! Thank you to those who have committed to the season following our reduction in membership prices, this will go a long way to helping the club in the future whilst giving everyone continued access to the courts this year!

A reward of sorts for that uptake is the LTAs new guidelines for Tennis in England following government COVID-19 guidelines. Please find rules in graphic to the left!

The main update is that doubles play is now allowed from members of different households as long as the guidelines for hygeine and equipment are followed. Our courts are now available to use under the premise of these guidlines to all Members. Please visit the Membership page if you havent already in order to finalise yours for the season before commencing play! As well as keeping an eye on the Coaching page for who to contact on the arrangements planned during the summer!

Thank you & enjoy your Tennis! – The Wilberfoss Tennis Club Committee


Membership Reduction / Court Update!

Hello All! Thank you for bearing with us during this unprecedented time. As you can imagine it is new circumstances to everyone and we are trying to adapt as a local club to the tough scenario the world finds itself in!

The great news is, we can now play tennis single with 1 Friend or doubles with Family members!  The Courts are open with strict guidelines on using your own marked balls to serve and staying 2m apart at all times.

The even better news is we are now offering a reduced rate for membership. We have done this due to the courts being out of action for the last 2 months and reflect the time lost and the limited singles play.

The new rates are on the Membership page and form.

Thank you to those who have already paid* and please can we remind you that you MUST be a paid up member to play on the courts.

We are very lucky to have such a great Tennis club in this lovely village and we want to be able to have it for many years to come. So we will be doing some fund raising events as soon as we can. Look out for details on our website. We need to do this so we can keep the courts to the high standard they are at the moment and improve them in coming years. 

Get out there and enjoy but please stay safe and play safe . 

* for those who have paid in full and would like a refund for the new rates , please contact our Treasurer Karen through wilberfosstennisclub@gmail.com and she can arrange a refund.


Courts Partially-Opened to Members

From Wednesday 13th May, following the latest measures from the UK Governments and the guidelines from the LTA. The courts are reopen to allow for singles games to occur only between two people from different households. 2m distances must occur between members at all times, as well as the use of their own marked tennis balls and equipment.

If you would like to play doubles games, they can only occur between family members from the same household. We appreciate our members understanding and due dilligence at this time in following these rules. Enjoy what Tennis we can get!!

Race Night Cancelled 21/03/2020

After long conversations around the Racenight going ahead it has been decided that it will be cancelled for Saturday 21st March and rescheduled for the Autumn when, hopefully, the situation around Coronavirus will be a thing of the past.

We have tried to take a responsible approach to this situation, limiting all non essential travel/public events in hope of keeping ourselves, our vulnerable friends and relatives safe and in the best of  health possible. Hopefully you will all agree this is the best course of action at this difficult period.

If you had very kindly donated/pledged for the event in any capacity please consult the Committee member who you donated to, feel free to request a full refund, however if you are happy to we might suggest you keep the bets banked with them for the Autumn rescheduling. Thank you again for your support.
