UPDATE: 20/05/2020 - New booking system for the tennis courts
Thank you for bearing with us whilst we looked at a booking system, where you can manage court bookings yourself. We are pleased to announce this is now available and details can be found on the 'Book a Tennis Court' page.
You can now book, re-arrange and cancel your court bookings by either accessing the booking system using a browser (Chrome, Edge, Safari etc) or there is an app you can download to your phone. There is no need to message in the WhatsApp group to make future court bookings.
If you don't have an LTA account, you can set one up here (the lite membership is free) or use one of the other options e.g. google, microsoft
We have transferred all existing books across to the new booking system. Please note, that as we have moved them across for you, you won't be able to cancel them yourself. However, any new bookings you make are managed by you and you do this using the 'view my bookings' link on the booking site. Should you need to cancel any existing bookings, please contact Chris Rodd via the WhatsApp group.
Any questions, please get in touch and we can help you set this up.
You must of course be a current member of the club, you can join here. Fees are reduced this year and we are using the same key as last season.
The committee have agreed the following club guidelines:
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 are considerably cheaper than most tennis clubs in Preston, so why not?!
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 2nd 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 6:30pm and on Sundays from 1.30pm or contact Liz Lemon, Dave Barnes, Alan Wilkinson or Ron Webster.
There will be junior tennis (Under 16s) in the Ribble Junior League, with matches taking place at the weekend.
Junior coaching remains on Tuesdays, please contact Dec for details. Junior members under 13 years old, must be supervised by someone over 13 years old.
With the current situation with the CoronaVirus pandemic, we do not know if the tennis league will go ahead this year. We will let you know once the league has confirmed what's happening.
In addition to team tennis, we will be holding our usual inter-club tennis tournaments. Look out for the emails for further information.
