Tennis Courts and Tennis Club

Clipston is very fortunate to have 2 good quality tennis courts. These are “owned” by the village through the Recreation Fields Trust and as such they are freely available to everyone and anyone in the community to use with no lock on the court and no need to pre-book or be a member of the Tennis Club. However there is an active Tennis Club and there are benefits to being a member (current cost in 2020 of £30 per year) of the Club.

 

For a start the Club is very inclusive, welcoming players of all standards (ideally able to sustain a rally) and has a very popular “social” night on Tuesday evenings (5:00 – dark) where we play predominantly mixed doubles before adjourning to the pub when darkness falls! Whilst social there is a competitive edge to these matches but primarily they are fun! The benefit to being a member is that you can come down on your own and be guaranteed a couple of hours playing with others, mixing and swapping who you play with and against no matter what your standard. And the Club provides new balls regularly!

 

Since the pandemic we also have agreed with CRFT that one day a week (Thursdays 9:00-5:00) will be reserved for, or at least priority given to, Club members who can then “pre-book” courts on an hourly basis guaranteeing that the court will be free for pre-arranged matches. Those taking advantage of this tend to play more seriously (often a best of 3 sets) and presumably arrange games with those of a similar standard………….but again if you are a Club member then anyone can book and use the court for a session of their own choice.

 

In 2021 we will similarly be reserving use of the courts at certain times to allow for professional coaching to take place, both for Club members (who will get a discount!) and non-Club members, including youngsters. We hope this initiative will prove popular with budding Roger Federer’s and Serena Williams’s. It may also prove beneficial to another new (or rather “resurrected”) initiative in that the Club have decided, after a hiatus of nearly 20 years, to re-enter the world of competitive tennis and are entering teams in the East Northants Tennis League. To play in this (Mens, Womens, Mixed) you will have to be a member of the Club…….but we’re always open to new members joining us Rafa!

 

So, as you will see there are benefits to joining the Club……………and if you want more details on how to do so then please contact Martin Clarke (525558)
