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 2017

If you are new to our village, I’d like to extend a very warm welcome on behalf of Coleshill Tennis Club. The tennis club, situated on Tower Road, has been an integral part of village life since the late 1980’s. We have two hard courts, a clubhouse with kitchen and WC facilities and a club coach, all run by an active committee.

The event is free and all are invited, both new and existing villagers, to see the club and meet the members and committee, so please put the date in your diaries. It’s also our way of saying “thank you” to the fantastic support that we receive from the village and for making Coleshill such a great place to live.

Panto

Our final social event for the Club last year was another potted panto “Jack and the Amazing Multi-Coloured Beanstalk”. Again a sell out, with a fantastic performance together with a lovely meal, which raised nearly £2500. A big thank you for all those involved in the production, and for all friends, family and villagers that supported us.
