UPDATE: 16/03/18 - Membership renewal for the 2019/20 season is now available

It's that time of the year already where the season is not far from starting and it is also the time to renew your membership at the tennis club. 


  We can offer you a £5.00 discount, if you pay your membership BEFORE 1st May 2019, so join now!

We are considerably cheaper than most tennis clubs in Preston, so why not?!

The new lock will be fitted from the end of March to the gate at the car park end and members will be issued with a new key on payment of their membership.

 

On the playing side, the club is entering two mixed adult teams in the Ribble League, two mens team in the Fylde League, a Cunningham Cup team as well as our usual mens and ladies Autumn league teams. This year looks to be our best yet, with teams in the 1st and 3rd division in the summer league, where there will no doubt be some fantastic tennis. 


We are keen to involve as many people as possible who would like to play team tennis. If you are a new or existing member interested in playing for any team, please come along to social tennis on Thursday evenings from 6:00pm – (start date Thursday 4 April) and on Sundays from 1pm or contact Liz Lemon, Allison Moosa, Alan Wilkinson or Ron Webster.

 

There will be junior tennis in the Ribble Junior League, with matches taking place at the weekend.

Junior practice remains on Tuesdays, start date & time TBC

 

Allison Moosa, (our junior organiser) will be present to speak to parents to help with the juniors.

 

In addition to team tennis, we will be holding our usual inter-club tennis tournaments. Look out for the emails for further information.
