Walsall Tennis Club

 

Walsall Tennis club is the primary location for ‘On The Edge Tennis’, and is where my programme is delivered every week of the year. I represent and captain our Mens A team, and my other coaches, Ellie (captain) and Ryan represent our Mens and Ladies A teams also. You can find the Club grounds on the FIND ME page. The club has been situated on it’s current site for most of it’s 100 year history, In fact we celebrate our centenary in 2012 Olympic year, you can read our long history by clicking  http://www.walsalltennis.co.uk/web/html/ItsHistory.htm.

The club has 5 mens teams and 2 ladies teams in Staffordshire Interclub leagues click here to view http://www.staffstennisleague.co.uk/html/home.asp , 1 mixed team and a Spring league team, I organise a Mixed doubles open tournament in June sponsored by Decathlon, and a Mens doubles open sponsored by Walsall Housing Group in September. From July onwards and culminating in a terrific Finals day we hold 14 Junior and Adult events in our club championships, playing for medals and trophies which are then presented again at our Christmas party along with Quiz, Disco and Karaoke. We hold club mix in sessions which I organise on Saturdays and Wednesdays and ensure you have the best playing environment for your ability, and I also organise regular fun mixed doubles tournaments on Saturdays.

For Junior members, we provide a free Junior Club night every Friday in British Summer Time from 5.30pm to 8.30pm or dusk (whichever comes first), where we supervise and organise games for your children. We have strong school links with Park Hall Juniors and Queen Mary’s for boys and we are open to further school links. The club also holds the annual Walsall school’s Mini Red tennis tournaments. This year our club has formed a fantastic partnership with Walsall Housing Group, and coached up to a 100 youngsters who may not normally get the chance to play tennis at a tennis club. They were so good and talented that whg made 10 of the children members of the club and they received extra coaching sessions until December. They even acted as ball kids for our finals day in September. The club also allows holiday coaching camps all year through which are a great success.

So it’s all going on at Walsall Tennis Club whether its Membership, Socialising, Fitness or coaching, please feel free to come down whenever to view our club or call Membership Secretary Ellie on 07754 410564 for more information. 2012 will be a great year at WTC make sure you are a part of it!
