Wickwoods New Indoor Tennis Complex

Here at Wickwoods we are getting very excited about this new addition to the Club! We have been watching it going up over the last few months and can’t wait to see it completed!

It has stuck well to it’s original completion date and should hopefully be up and running towards the end of October, this brand new beautiful complex will bring us to a grand total of eight tennis courts! How have we fitted them all in? and just in time for winter too, we will be fully equipped with four indoor courts this winter to keep you playing tennis throughout the chilly months, the bubble will be going up sometime in October the exact date to come.

The new Indoor Tennis Courts will be housed in a permanent steel-framed structure finished to a high standard. State-of-the-art low energy lighting will provide an even and high level of illumination at all times. The courts will be finished in purple which is the best colour for ball definition and looks amazing.

The Grand Opening

Now comes the exciting bit! To properly welcome this complex as part of Wickwoods superb facilities we will be holding an opening ceremony. We are very lucky to be hosting a charity exhibition match played by two world-ranked tennis players, one of whom started his tennis career here at Wickwoods when he was six years old. Julian Cash has progressively developed his tennis career since first picking up and racket on the Wickwoods courts. In 2013 Julian qualified for the 18U tournaments at Wimbledon and is currently the youngest British player to hold a senior world ranking title.

The inauguration will be raising money to the Have a Heart appeal, this charity helps to realise the dreams of terminally ill children whilst also providing support to their families.

Keep your eyes and ears peeled for more information, we have flyers around and you will also be hearing more information on the Heart Radio’s breakfast show.

The Wickwoods Tennis Programme has been developed by our Head Coach Bob Clark, offering a mix of social and competitive tennis sessions throughout the week for all ages and abilities. View the Clubs tennis programme here. There really is something for everyone.

Why not book a no obligation tour? We will show you around the facilities and discuss what a membership at Wickwoods can offer you.
