News from Winterbourne Tennis Club

WITH outdoor sports due to reopen at the end of March, Winterbourne Tennis Club is looking forward to welcoming back regular members and new members for the coming season.

In the meantime, during lockdown WTC acting chair Jo Lougheed and the committee members worked hard at improving facilities, ensuring COVID-19 rules are in place and updating the website.

The WTC website is now linked to the LTA through Club Spark, at

This gives members as well as non-members the opportunity to make enquiries, book courts, coaching sessions and cardio tennis and make all payments for membership and other fees.

We have had an increase in membership after the first lockdown and junior coaching sessions have seen a significant rise.

One of the most important changes at the club has been the addition of a secure gate to Court 3. Non-members have direct access to the court and any member of the public can book the court a week in advance, subject to club rules.

On Monday March 15, we will be holding a virtual AGM for members as well as anyone who would be interested in the running of this community tennis club. There are various posts on the committee that need to be filled and if you have time and would like to get involved, please contact the club secretary atsec.wtcbs36@gmail.comby March 7 to register.

There are a lot of new and exciting projects planned for the future of WTC so why not join your local friendly club this year.
