In the Summertime, when the weather is hot…

We had a great open day today at Ember, with record numbers of keen tennis, bowls, croquet and drama enthusiasts coming down to have a go and find out more about the club.
Thanks to all the Ember members who made it such a great day!
If you didn’t make it, but still want to find out more about what we do and how to join, take a look at our membership page.

Tennis Coaching courses for adult beginners

Currently there are two Tennis Xpress coaching sessions run each week for adult beginner / improvers on Tuesdays 10-11.30am and Saturdays 1.30 – 2.30pm (on courts 6 and 7). These sessions have been arranged as part of an initiative to attract new adult members. Players use green balls – a low compression tennis ball that helps novice players to develop their skills more quickly. If any member is interested or knows an adult who may be interested to join one of these groups, they should contact Rob Blundell (
To develop this initiative, there is now a green ball mix-in for adult beginner / improvers on Tuesday evenings at 7.30-9pm. This is a session without coaching to allow inexperienced players to practise with each other.
