Welcome to Southbourne Tennis Club – Bringing Tennis To The Community

Our Club successfully provides social and competitive tennis for all ages and abilities. We are a well-established and progressive club in Bournemouth with over 450 Adult , Junior and Mini Tennis members. We are winners of Dorset LTA Club of the year, have a very friendly and vibrant atmosphere , and have amongst our members some of the best players in Dorset.

New Players are always welcome! If you’re new to tennis you are welcome to come and try our Wednesday night session which runs from 6-8PM. This is a mixed ability session of green to intermediate players. It’s a very relaxed session where the aim is to have competition but a lot of fun at the same time. Everyone is encouraged and supported. Oh, you also, have a Monday session 10AM to 12PM and a coaching session on Wednesday evening 7.15MP to 8.15PM. This is a great way to get to know the coaches and be introduced to the amazing game of tennis!

Been playing a few years? But not team standard? Club sessions are Tues, Fri (9AM to 11AM) and Sun mornings (10AM to 12PM). We also have adult coaching Monday and for red players we have Thursday session 6-8pm.

Finally, juniors over 10’s can come and trial club sessions Sat 10-11.25am and Mon 6-7.25pm.

To all parents of children on one of our termly coaching courses we hope you are well and hope your child has been enjoying their tennis and this lovely weather. Thank you for attending sessions this term.

Please note next week 15th - 21st July is the last week of the coaching programme for the summer term. Please note we start back from Monday 9th September. Please can we have completed enrolment forms and payment back by 2nd September to make sure your child's place is reserved for them. If you have filled in a form in previous terms I just need the form back with the children's name and a parents signature at the bottom and an up to date email address. Please note getting forms back to us early helps us plan the groups and allows for us to make sure spaces are filled and we have the required minimum of 4 players in each group to run them. The Autumn term is really busy so most spaces in groups will go fast. Thank you in advance.

Thank you to all that attended the Members fun day today, it was a great day although possibly a little hot!!! The day went well with members testing their speed of serve, aiming at targets, using the ball machine and trying out the latest rackets. Also we had chance to watch the coaches in action as they played an exhibition match.

A big thanks to Andy king for organising the food and help during the day and for Colin for running the bbq. Thanks to the coaches, Dave, Matt, Ray, Sally Revell, Shuei, Dimitri and Sarah and to all the other helpers.
