The club was formed in 1988 without courts on land donated by the late Jack Adams, resident and benefactor of Coleshill. The original committee was Chris and David George, Sharon and David Hall, Lindsey Eardley, Dumpy Swerling, Helen Spencer and Barry Collins.

The two courts were laid in 1994 and in 2003.

The club now has a thriving membership of over 130.

Situated opposite the Cricket ground, with its own entrance from Tower road the club has two excellent condition courts and a clubhouse. There is adequate parking for players.

An active programme of league matches, inter club matches, casual play and Fun Days are organised throughout the year. Coaching is available for all ages and abilities. An active social programme is also arranged.

Club play takes place on Sundays at 10am and additionally on Tuesday evenings at 6pm from April.

The Tennis club membership is available to all residents of Coleshill and the club welcomes players of all abilities.

A very reasonable Annual membership fee is payable. Details of the benefits of club membership can be obtained by contacting Club Secretary - click here to send email

Tennis Club News - Spring 2018

 

Last November saw our two courts resurfaced with an artificial grass which is all weather. Only snow and heavy rain will prevent you playing on it and it is even good in icy conditions.

Again a sell out with a fantastic performance together with a lovely meal, which raised over £2700.
