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
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
