A warm welcome to Kintbury Tennis Club
Congratulations to Emma Raducanu and Leylah Fernandez. You gave us a great final; you are a credit to your families, your sport and yourselves. First qualifier to win US Open. Phenomenal!
Kintbury Tennis Club welcomes players of every standard. Whether you're just beginning or already playing at a high level, we have team play, club sessions and coaching to suit you.
We've got members from all over West Berkshire, not just in Kintbury. Members come from Hungerford, Newbury, Chilton Foliat, Inkpen, Hamstead Marshall, and even from outside the County to be part of our lovely club. We've got three fantastic tennis courts, all exceeding the specifications set by the LTA, and all with County standard floodlights, attesting to the fact that we aim to deliver the best possible facility to our members.
As a member of the club and if you are also a member of BTM (which is FREE to join), you qualify for entry into our Wimbledon ballot. The club is allocated roughly ten pairs every year, that members can win the right to purchase, if they are successful in the ballot. Several of our members have seen matches on Centre court and on finals day. The ballot normally takes place, on or near our Open Day in April. Take a look at our Wimbledon page, to see the tickets we got this year.
We actively encourage beginners to get started and to get better, as well as just to have fun
playing with their friends and family. Our regular club sessions are open to everyone, and we have recently moved our club night from Wednesday to Friday to attract more players to club night, and to allow coaching to continue through the day on Wednesday. The Friday session starts at 6.30pm and committee members have pledged to come along so that there is always someone to have a hit with. One court remains available for a reduced club session on Wednesday night. We also have a regular Saturday morning/afternoon club session, and several other group sessions that are organised by members. You can see our weekly calendar here.
Outside of club sessions, there are plenty of times when the courts are free for your use. To see if the courts are
free today, to book a court, and to contact other members to play against, you can
login to our member-only pages.
We cater for strong players too. We've got three men's teams, one ladies' team and two mixed teams, and our 'A' teams regularly come out on top of the league, and we always do our best in whichever division we play. We also do our best to socialise and provide warm hospitality for our opponents once the game is over.
If you're just starting out then our coach is available to help you to improve. However, if your sole intention is to have fun playing with your kids there's plenty of court time at the weekend when you can turn up and play.
We also run several social events through the year, including family tennis days and quiz nights. And if you join before our Open Day at the start of the season, British Tennis Members are automatically entered into the draw for the chance to get some tickets at Wimbledon. So there's plenty of reasons to get out those rackets and join us. If you click this link, you can download our membership forms and get contact details for our secretary to answer any questions you might have.
As a club, we are also members of the LTA, and our local Newbury & District LTA, so you can be sure we keep up to date with rule changes and provide opportunities for match play.
