Tennis club reopens

March 26 2021

WINTERBOURNE Tennis Club has been a hive of activity since the announcement that outdoor tennis can resume on March 29.

Junior coaching will commence on April 3. This has been an enormously successful programme and the number of kids coming for lessons is still growing.

The ever-popular two-week Easter Holiday camp will be running from April 5 to 16. The first week is almost fully booked. Email for more details.

Before the latest lockdown, WTC entered three junior teams in the Avon League. They achieved some good results and we hope that they can continue their success in the Avon Junior Summer league. There has also been an increase in some of the older Juniors participating in in the Avon Adult Winter and Summer League, giving them invaluable experience for the future.

Congratulations to Zechariah Hamrouni, who is currently number 5 seed in the country for under 14s.

On April 3, there will be a back to Tennis Open Day for adults and children, starting at 2pm and in line with covid restrictions. It is free and people of all abilities are welcome. If interested, please register online at, where you can also find details of all club tennis.

At the club’s virtual AGM in March, WTC said goodbye and a big thank-you to interim chair, Jo Lougheed, who took over the role just before lockdown last year. Our new chair will be Jody Cockcroft, who has been a long-standing committee member.
