Wickwoods Spring Newsletter


Wickwoods Spring Newsletter 2013

If those New Year resolutions have fallen by the way side, Spring is an ideal time to start a fresh with your health and fitness progamme.

Here at your Club we have all the incentives and support you need, regardless of your age, level of fitness or ability.

The Wickwoods team are ready to support you all the way, to a fitter and healthier you.

There are lots of exciting things planned for this year, including a host of fabulous social events and tennis tournaments. There are more classes than ever before in the studio and our Head Coach Bob Clark has some exciting developments planned for the Club’s tennis programme, helping to make tennis at Wickwoods more accessible to all our members.

In terms of physical improvements, the main focus alongside a number of smaller projects will be the development of a new indoor tennis facility, all of which will continue to establish Wickwoods as one of the region’s leading country clubs.

We want to ensure that all our members are able to make the very most of their membership, so if you need any help or advice please let us know; the entire Wickwoods team is here to help in any way that we can. If we happen to fall short of your expectations then please do email me directly at lg@wickwoods.co.uk.

Are Your Health & Fitness Goals Realistic & Achievable ?

We want to make sure that all our members are able to make the most of their membership and there is a separate advice note produced on this (read how to make the most of your membership). Aside from ensuring you are able to make the most of your membership, one of the most important things to highlight is that often people set unrealistic goals and after a few weeks suffer ‘burn out’ leading them to give up entirely. Make sure your goals are realistic; if you are starting out, then limit your gym session to no more than three 40 minute sessions a week and build up slowly from there. Add variety by joining a class or take to the courts for a coaching session. Starting out sensibly will ensure long term changes in your health & fitness. For more advice speak to one of Wickwoods health and fitness coaches.

Free Inductions, Consultations and Reviews:

All Wickwoods members are offered complimentary inductions to our tennis programme, gymnasium and studio.

So if there is an aspect of the club you are yet to try, talk to reception today about booking a free induction. There is also the opportunity of a health check, posture analysis or nutritional advice session, again these are all provided on a complimentary basis and are subject to availability. If you have been exercising regularly, it might be time you had one of the health and fitness team look over your programme, discuss your goals and then adjust your fitness routine to ensure you are achieving the most from your workout. We recommend that you vary your regime every 8 – 12 weeks to guarantee maximum results.

Tennis Events & Tournaments:

Our head coach hosts a ‘meet the coach’ session on the third Saturday of every month at 12.30pm, providing the opportunity for both new and existing members to find out more about the tennis program as well as to meet other like minded players who are either new to tennis or new to tennis at Wickwoods. From 1pm one of the coaches will hold a complimentary fun session directed at beginners in place of the normal 1pm Saturday beginners coaching session.

There are free refreshments from 12.30pm, no booking required. For intermediate and advanced players, alongside the extensive coaching programme, Wickwoods hosts a number of one day tournaments throughout the year which are open to all members. The tournaments follow differing playing styles and rules from around the world. Entry forms are available from reception and entry is £5.00 per person.


The team have a number of superb fresh spring offers to ensure you are looking radiant and feeling relaxed. For all the latest YourSpa offers register to receive YourSpa newsletter.


The party season at Wickwoods never ends; join us for A tribute to Frank Sinatra & Dean Martin direct from UK touring show “Rat Pack Live” on the 26th of April and then again on the 15th June for the Club’s incredible Summer Ball featuring the amazing Choice Band who have appeared alongside Elton John, David Bowie and Rod Stewart,

Details of all our events are available in the Club or online at www.wickwoods.co.uk.
