The 2019 Wheatley Tennis Club open day will be held on Saturday 6th April at 2.30pm and the club look forward to welcoming both existing and new members. With a BBQ and refreshments provided, all they ask is you come and enjoy the afternoon. Don’t worry if you haven’t played before as racquets will be available for those that need one.
Having secured funding from the Lawn Tennis Association and Sport England towards the cost of floodlighting, 2019 looks like being their best year ever at Wheatley. There are still a few things to sort but it is hoped that installation will be completed sometime during the summer. The lighting will enable members to play year-round tennis until 9.30pm, seven days a week and rather than have a ‘pay-to-play’ system the club have opted to incorporate the anticipated running costs into the subscription fees, details of which can be found on their website, www.wheatleytennis.org.uk.
Tuesday evenings from 6.30pm onwards and Sunday mornings from 10.30am have been set aside for social tennis where everyone mixes in. With four teams in the Gainsborough evening league, there is also ample opportunity for all members to play competitive tennis at their appropriate level.
After Easter, Tim Taylor, the club’s experienced LTA Level 3 coach, will be holding three coaching groups on Friday evenings for junior, young improvers and adult players for £4.00 per person per session. However, to encourage more younger members, any junior or intermediate that signs up for ten coaching lessons, costing £40.00, will be entitled to free membership which is a saving of £20.00.
