Grass Court Only Membership Now Available

Our 9 Grass Courts are now available for play to Non-Club Members.

 

There are various options from Pay and Play to a Full Season Membership.

 

Our SIX main grass courts have now been fully refurbished and laser levelled using the same procedures as the Wimbledon Tournament courts.  We have also improved our THREE subsidiary courts, which the official LTA Consultants classified as equivalent to those used for LTA County Week.  They graded the SIX refurbished courts as “exceptional and of the highest standard”.

Take this opportunity to try out tennis on real grass courts and enjoy the benefits of our Clubhouse, Café and Bar.

East Dorset Mini Tennis Friday pay & play!

Just to let you know that the East Dorset Mini Tennis Friday session on astro courts 1 & 2 is still pay & play, so just turn up at 5.30pm on Fridays and pay there and then. The cost has increased to £4 per child though, still great value for an hour’s mini tennis fun and skills practice!

We hope to implement a booking system by Easter ready for when it gets really busy! The session is for children aged 3-7 years and is a great introduction to tennis with lots of racket and ball skills and stroke practice.

Hope to see you there!

Mini Tennis Xmas Party – Friday 15th December

This Friday evening is the last East Dorset Mini Tennis session before Christmas so it’s going to be a party… or at least lots of fun tennis activities and games on the astro courts, with Xmas tunes playing in the background!

All children aged 3-7 years old are welcome, and it’s £3.50 per child… but remember they’ll need to wear something Christmassy, e.g. santa hats, reindeer antlers or tinsel! The coaches will be dressed up too so don’t let us be the only ones!!


Team Challenge fun at East Dorset!

On Sunday 3rd December we held our first ever Team Challenge event and welcomed 36 children to our club, including teams from Blandford Tennis Academy and Christchurch Tennis Facility. There were 2 tournaments running alongside, one for Mini Red, the other for Mini Orange, with the children playing in teams of 3, with a mix of singles and doubles matches.

Thanks to all the youngsters who took part and there was a brilliant family atmosphere, so we’re already looking forward to our next Team Challenge event on Sunday 21st January, this time for Mini Green and Yellow ball juniors… so save the date!
