Wickwoods Country Club, Hotel & Spa
Future plans & investment
Over the next few years, Wickwoods will be undergoing a significant and exciting transformation through an ongoing multi-million-pound investment. Alongside the development already commencing, there are further plans for an extension to the indoor pool and spa, plus improvements to the building’s façade.
Padel Tennis Development - Autumn 2021
One of the fastest growing sports across Europe, padel has gained increased popularity, and Wickwoods will be commencing development of 2 Padel courts!
Padel offers a great physical activity which is fun and social! Suitable for all ages and abilities, as it is easy to play. Most gain the basics in the initial 30 minutes of play. Padel is not about strength, more the technique and serve. Points are won by your strategy rather than strength and power. It therefore offers better mixed play, a game for all to play together. It's similar to Tennis and Squash. However, it’s usually always played in doubles. Courts are enclosed by glass and metal mash and is one-third the size of a tennis court. You can bounce the ball against any wall but it can only hit the turf once prior to being returned. Points are scored when the ball bounces twice in the opponent's side.
New indoor tennis dome - Now completed
We're also replacing our current tennis dome with a state-of-the-art permanent dome with retractable sides. This, along with court surface upgrades, will provide the club with exceptional year-round tennis facilities.
MD Lee Goossens says “We wanted to find a structure that provides members with the very best of playing environments all year round. Having evaluated many options, the CopriSystems structure was chosen as it allows the sides to be drawn back during the warmer weather, thus providing an improved playing environment for members during the summer, while giving the ultimate indoor/outdoor feel.”
A Greener Wickwoods
We are committed to continuously improving and refining our environmental practices. Looking ahead, we will see the introduction of air source heat pumps as the primary heat source for The Spa Garden. We'll also be converting to Bio LPG as our main source of heating, as it is the cleanest, most effective gas available and is derived from waste residues and sustainably-sourced materials.
