Two courts refurbished – at last!!
The surface of the 2 tennis courts next to the children’s play area were very worn and needed resurfacing. The resurfacing work started at the beginning of November. when repairs were carried out and a new tarmac surface was laid. The courts could not be painted until the weather was warm and dry, so we had to wait 6 months for the right weather conditions! The courts were finally sprayed on Tuesday 29 May and were back in use on Monday 4 June much to the delight of the children (see front page photo - jumping for joy!)

Next project – New Clubhouse!
The next project for the club is to replace the old clubhouse which is a 50 year old prefabricated building. It will be demolished and the new clubhouse will be built on the same site. It has taken about 3 years of hard work and patience by the tennis club committee to get to this point. They had to decide on the layout of the new clubhouse, gain planning permission and then obtain the £100,000 funding to go towards the cost. The club is also having to put a lot of its own funds, along with money raised from several fund raising events held in the last few years, to pay for the new clubhouse. The work will start in mid July and it should take about 4 months to complete.

Summer Holiday Tennis Fun For Kids – Could your child be the next Andy Murray?!
By the time the Summer holidays start ,Wimbledon will have just finished. Will we have a British Wimbledon Champion (Andy Murray, Kyle Edmund or Jo Konta)? Hopefully lots of children will watch the great two week event on TV and then want to learn how to play tennis. If they do, they will get the opportunity to have a go at Kibworth Tennis Club, as we will be running courses for children between the ages of 3 to 18 from beginners through to match players throughout the Summer Holidays. More information about the Summer Holiday courses is on the club website kibworthtennis.co.uk.
