In 2018 we resurfaced courts 1 & 2 with a high grip all-weather surface and the indoor courts benefited from a repaint.

Some temporary upgrades were undertaken to the booking system in advance of an entirely new membership booking system that will be introduced in early spring next year. The new booking system “Premier Core” is one of the leisure industry’s leading software systems, ensuring the Wickwoods booking & membership management system is one of the most advanced available.

2019 will see further surface and lighting upgrades, along with a semi-permanent structure over courts 5 & 6.

Member’s feedback on the service and facility is both appreciated and valued so please do drop Lee Goossens the MD a line with your observations and suggestions.

Our Courts

Wickwoods offers a choice of outdoor and indoor tennis, with 6 floodlight courts, of which 2 are dome covered during the colder months, and 2 permanent indoor courts.

Outdoor

Our Approved Advantage RedCourt® tennis courts offer a superior artificial playing surface for year round play. Combining the appearance and playing characteristics of clay with the advantages of an all-weather playing surface, matches and training can take place on an ideal playing surface, with minimal downtime through the year.

Compared to traditional clay tennis court, this surface provides a wonderful alternative. Just like a regular clay court, play takes place on an unbound surface, offering the same surface speed, bounce and overall comfort you would expect. Players are able to slide in a controlled motion, able to cover the entire court area with less effort and stress on ligaments and joints.

However, unlike traditional clay courts, Advantage RedCourt® surfaces offer year-round playability while requiring far less maintenance. One of the distinct advantages this artificial all-weather surface has over natural clay, natural grass and cushioned acrylic surfaces is its rapid drainage capabilities. It features a porous system, meaning play can take place whatever the weather condition.

What’s more, these synthetic clay courts are sand infilled, meaning watering to eliminate dust problems are not necessary.

Indoor

Our new state-of-the art indoor tennis facility was completed in 2013, adding 2 indoor courts in a permanent steel-framed structure with shaded cladding to blend in with our beautiful woodland setting. This takes the total number of covered tennis courts at Wickwoods to 4.

Wickwoods was the first tennis club to install LTA approved lighting to provide a simulated daylight environment that offers less glare, sharper ball definition and enhanced play conditions. The new indoor courts are finished in purple, the preferred colour at both Wimbledon and the US Open.
