New Tennis Members

Are you a new member at Warwick Boat Club?

Paul Martin Paul Martin Tennis Captain

Congratulations on joining the tennis section. I very much hope you enjoy being a member of the Club and meet lots of new friends. A good start might be to turn up and join in social arranged tennis. For beginners or those returning to the game the club has a Learn To Play pathway to help you to improve and add to your enjoyment of playing. You can download details by clicking here

Any adult, or junior with senior status can turn up at the club and join in social arranged tennis, when they will play a set with other players of the same standard, then change around. These are called Mix-Ins. This a great way to meet other members, and enjoy some social tennis.

Club Senior Mix-Ins take place at the following times:


Days Time Courts Organised?
 
Tuesday 9.30 – 11.30am 1 - 4 Yes
Wednesday 6.00 onwards All courts Yes
Saturday 1.30pm – 5pm All courts Yes
Sunday 9.30am - 12.00 1 to 5. Extra as required        Yes
Friday 12.30-4.00 As required        Part
  • All social tennis Mix-Ins are organised by the Tennis Manager or a coach, whenever possible.
  • The form of the Mix-In is to turn up and make the Tennis Manager (or on a Sunday other members) aware that you would like to play – you will then be mixed in with members of a similar standard as quickly as possible. Members are asked to respect this to ensure that everyone who attends gets a good standard of tennis.
  • Members cannot expect to go on court in turn, or to play only mixed fours and may also be required to wait for a game to finish.
  • Juniors who have been awarded senior status are also invited to attend.

Play

Play one short set at all Mix-ins unless otherwise requested.

Junior and Family Mix-ins

A variety of sessions are available depending on the time of year. Please contact Graham Kensett for details- graham.kensett@guidedogs.org.uk

I'd like to welcome you to the tennis section of Warwick Boat Club that was formed in 1893 when the first tennis court was built. Since then we have dramatically improved the tennis facilities so they are now among the finest of any club in Warwickshire.

Please take the opportunity to benefit from your membership. Try participating in other sports – especially when there is a social event that involves the other sections. You could try rowing in the annual Patrick McClosker Tennis v Squash rowing race – traditionally the last race of the annual regatta – or have a go at bowls in the annual Brophy Trophy match between Tennis, Rowing and Squash.

I hope you will enjoy your membership of the Club for many years to come. It is truly a members' club and the more you put in, the more enjoyment you will get from the Club.


Libby Newman Libby Newman Club Social chairman

As a new member I very much hope you’ll join in the social activities our committee arranges for not only tennis but all sections of the Club.

Please take a look at the social page for more information – and I hope to see you at the Club events.
