A Hidden Gem in Wendover

Wendover Tennis and Squash club has undergone a major renovation over the past few months.

The squash courts have been refurbished, with glass doors installed.

The three main tennis courts have been resurfaced with Tiger Turf Pro, which is a state of the art surface, ideal for recreational and match play. This was a massive investment for the club of £60,000.

The club is very successful. Several of our squash juniors play at County level and many are county champions. We are also incredibly proud of 15 year old Katie Malliff who plays for England and regularly wins against girls two age groups above her own. We currently have 90 junior squash members, and the club is buzzing with activity every day after school and at the weekend. Regular adult leagues and social sessions of squash and racketball are popular.

We have a new tennis coach, who is encouraging beginner, intermediate and advanced adults and children to develop their ball skills. Keith is proving to be very popular, and the enthusiasm for tennis is most definitely on the up.

For those who like playing matches there are several tennis teams playing successfully in two local leagues.

There are four social tennis sessions for adults weekly and the Whatsapp group plays as many days as they can. A junior club night for all rackets after school happens on a Wednesday, at no extra cost.

Over and above anything else, this is a club that is affordable and fun. Adults and children can walk after school, work, commuting etc and pop in for a game of tennis/squash or racketball. Families can even bring a picnic and sit outside after a game.

Our membership fees are very reasonable. A family can play for less than £10 per week, a child under 11 for less than £1 per week, 11-18 £1.40 per week, and a single adult £5 per week. Tennis only or squash only is even less.

Come and visit us in Dobbins Lane – you will love it. Look out on our website wendovertennisandsquash.co.uk for free tennis tasters coming up during the summer.
