Slip End Tennis Club
Slip End Tennis Club was founded in 1987 and plays at the Playing Fields adjacent to St Andrews Parish Church in Church Road, Slip End. There are two hard courts with floodlights.
The Club has a membership of approx. 75, the majority of whom live within the Parish. A number of members live in nearby villages, Harpenden and Luton. The Club has no clubhouse, which means that most members choose to play at times that suit themselves.
Club members have priority in the use of courts, except when matches are to be played. Club night is on Monday evenings and Adult night on Wednesday evenings both from 7pm, to which all members are welcome.
Membership runs from April to March and membership costs are as below.
Junior £20 (Those in full time education) Adults £35 Family £60
There is a reduction for early payment of subscriptions)
The Club has a Men’s team in the South Beds Tennis League. Home matches and coaching take priority over other playing.
Sally Parry, the LTA Club Coach, runs group Junior coaching on Fridays, Beginners 5-6pm and Intermediates 6-7pm. (Members £4 & Non Members £5 per session. Ladies and private coaching is also available. Give Sally a call 01582 413501)
The Club is affiliated to the Beds LTA, which means that the Club receives an allocation of Wimbledon tickets. The AGM is held in April when the ballot for the Wimbledon tickets received takes place.
