Our '100' Club - sign up NOW

Each year, the Club organises a '100' club to raise funds for the new clubhouse. Please support your club - you could be a winner too.

For those of you unfamiliar with what a 100 Club is, it involves a payment of £12 per year which gives you a number for a year (you can have as many numbers as you like be it for yourself or family and friends) which will then be entered into a quarterly draw. There will be three cash prizes* drawn per quarter with 50% of ticket sales being paid out in prizes and 50% going to the club.  The first quarterly draw will be on 1st July. Thereafter on 1st October, 1st January and 1st April.

* If 100 numbers are sold first prize would be £75, second £50 and third £25.

If you would like to support this fundraiser, please view and complete the form below or contact Jane Laborda -  jane.laborda@hotmail.co.uk

Schools Roadshow - a massive success

The Club held a successful week of introducing tennis to many local children.

Tennis sessions were held in local schools followed by an Open Weekend at the Club.

During the Open Event, local primary school children (and parents) enjoyed a fun tennis session, with tennis games, inflatables and activities, in our indoor centre.

Many thanks to Phil, a British Tennis Coach, who visited local schools and organised the sessions at the club. Many of our tennis leaders helped on both days too and were all amaxing. Also, a big thank you goes to all the club volunteers who helped throughout the weekend.

Basingstoke Winter League success

Great success from our teams during the Winter Season in the Basingstoke League:

The Mens 'A' team won Division 1

The Mens 'B' team came second in Division 2 and promoted to Division 1 for the forthcoming Winter season.  

Thank you to all the team players for representing the Club.

Plus a big thank you to the Captains for their hard work in organising the teams.

touchtennis event a great success...

Andover Tennis Club held their first Touchtennis event at their indoor Centre last Saturday. Touchtennis is a fast-growing adaption of the game of tennis, played with sponge balls over a small court. Players are allowed only one serve, there are no lets and a sudden death deuce is played. This makes the games move swiftly onwards. The sponge balls make the game exciting for all ages and abilities and mean that adults can compete with young players on an equal footing. The event was organised by Josh Gook and Ed Percival, new coaches at the club, who are both excellent competitors in this game and great supporters of it. 24 club members, ranging in age from 7 years to over 70 years took part in a great morning of fun and enjoyment. The competitors played doubles and were divided into 3 sections for a round robin challenge, followed by semi-finals and a final.

Floodlights now available on the outdoor courts...

The floodlights are now in place for use on the outdoor courts.

  • The fee for the outdoor floodlight hire will be £4 per hour per court and can be booked in the normal way via the Clubspark on-line court booking system. 
  • When using floodlights for the outdoor courts, the booking must be a minimum of one hour. Please ensure you select this in the timing ‘pull-down’ option when booking your court on Clubspark.
  • As with any booking, the access gate is programmed to open 15 minutes prior to your booking. When using the outdoor floodlights, they will also automatically turn on at this time.
  • The lights will automatically turn off when the booking ends.
  • A 'safety light' (the floodlight by the court 3 access gate) will be lit throughout the booking and will turn off 5 minutes after the booking ends to ensure players can leave the courts safely.

The Committee would like to thank all the members for their co-operation during the installation and hope you enjoy the added facility to the outdoor courts.
