We’re pleased to announce that Club Nights are moving from Thursday evening to Wednesday evening by popular demand… and we’re starting half an hour later to give people who work more time to get there.
So the new time is 6.30-8.30pm every Wednesday, with coach Sally arranging you into doubles pairs. Then there’ll be an hour’s unsupervised play at the end for any latecomers.
The new Autumn term coaching programme starts this week, so join us this Wednesday 6th September for our first session!
Please note that Monday club nights with Aaron continue at their usual time of 6-8pm.
We’re pleased to be re-introducing cardio tennis to our weekly coaching programme, so if you’ve been before and enjoyed it or if you’re new to cardio, come along next Saturday morning to give it a go!
Cardio Tennis is a fun, sociable group fitness class on a tennis court and set to music… the perfect way to get fit and have fun at the same time!
The countdown’s on… don’t miss the first session on Saturday 9th September, members and non-members welcome 🙂

Join us for a fun American Doubles tournament at 3pm on Sunday 27th August! Adults and yellow ball juniors welcome to take part, I’ll sort out initial pairings on the day. Entry £5, with prizes for the winners… hope to see you there!
The club was proud to host an LTA Grade 3 tourament at the start of August, the Frost & Co Dorset Open 2017, and apart from one day of rain on the Wednesday the event ran smoothly and we saw some high quality tennis!
Thanks to all the players who took part, adults and juniors, and we hope you all enjoyed the experience! Congratulations to our winners and runners-up, including East Dorset’s Louis Allen who won the Boys 18U Singles event, and we hope to see you all again next year!
Following the recent purchase of an indoor table tennis table, we’re pleased to announce that club evenings will start from Thursday 20th July from 6pm til the bar closes in the function room.
You’re welcome to turn up and play free for one club session, but you’ll then need to sign up as a Table Tennis member (£24 for existing Tennis or Croquet members, and £36 for Bridge / Non Playing / New members).
You’ll be able to play at other times too when the function room is free, e.g. if it’s a wet Saturday club afternoon – you’ll just need to assemble the table and then put it away in the store cupboard afterwards.
If you’re keen to improve your game, Steve Moreman will be running table tennis coaching sessions too.
Entries are now open for the Frost & Co Dorset Open 2017, which takes place at the club from Sunday 6th to Saturday 12th August.
The tournament includes Junior events (8U – 18U) and Adult events (including Men’s Over 45 and Ladies Over 40) singles and doubles.
