Thongsbridge Tennis Club can proudly claim to be one of the most progressive and dynamic tennis clubs in Britain.
Watch out for our eblast with our weekend schedule where you can see some of our top tennis teams in action during the Summer. You can also come down on Monday evenings to watch the ladies and Tuesday evenings to watch the men in action in the Huddersfield League from the last week in April to the first week in August.
A strong social core is the backbone to the club and a full range of adult coaching groups are run throughout the week with the emphasis on improving your tennis game whilst enjoying great company.
During the summer season, from the end of Easter to the beginning of September, the club runs social events for adult members outdoors (not available for off peak members). Come down and enjoy some social doubles and meet fellow members. Sunday from 10am to noon begins on Sunday 21st April and Wednesday from 6pm begins Wednesday 17th April. Thursdays from 6.30pm run all year round. Members can go to our on-line booking system to join the social tennis, this way members can see the numbers attending. Log in, choose social tennis from the drop down list for classes and coaching groups which is found at the top of the page and select the date. The courts are pre-booked and the lights if required are free.
Fun games and sports for juniors are on a Friday evening 6pm to 7.30pm for the last term of school before the summer holidays, friends and siblings are welcome for free. We hold a BBQ and a tuck shop at a small price. Join in our Happy Hour, every hour 6pm-9pm. Open to members and non-members.
The club is committed to ensuring access to tennis for all and so it operates a Pay to Play scheme for non-members.
Parents can come along and play with their young children up to the age of eight on our mini courts. We require a £10 cash refundable deposit for the hire of equipment.
Competition at Thongsbridge
For members wanting to play competitive tennis, an active representative team structure flourishes at the club. Club box leagues run all year for players of all abilities. There are a total of 8 mens, 11 ladies and a full range of junior and intermediate teams competing at local, regional and national league level.
We also host an annual Club Championships tournament for members of all ages. However this year due to the corona virus restrictions, we will only be running the junior club championships. This will run over the weekend Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th July. The closing date is Monday 13th July.
The future of tennis firmly falls on our young players and with over 500 children, across a range of ages, enrolled on coaching programmes it is no surprise that a large part of our coaching is directed at the juniors.
The junior development journey starts as early as 3 years old with Tiny Tots (please contact reception for new class times for Tiny Tots) and progresses through Red, Orange and Green stages of LTA’s Mini Tennis programme.
As part of our outreach programme coaches visit all schools in the Holme Valley and further afield.
The club benefits from a coaching team of 7, including a nationally recognised Head Performance coach, and provides high quality coaching tailored to meet your individual needs. The professionalism and approach of the coaching team has resulted in the club being awarded LTA performance status.
