Brooke & District Tennis Club
Brooke & District Tennis Club has been established in the village for many years on land gifted to the village by the Mackintosh family. Originally two grass courts; these were changed to all weather courts in the 1970s and the pavilion was added in the 1980s. From 2016 we have floodlighting on both courts.
We are a small friendly club catering for all ages and all abilities. We currently have a membership of 74 seniors; 31 juniors; 5 honorary members; 4 students and 1 social member.
We have two men's and two ladies' teams who play in the Norwich City League. For social tennis we have a club morning on Wednesdays from 10.15am to 12 midday and Wednesday evening from 6.30pm until it is too dark to play. In addition to the Wednesday evening sessions, this year we have introduced an additional club playing opportunity on Sunday mornings from 10 am onwards which we hope will be well attended and which will be all year round. Everyone welcome!
We have a strong junior section run by our retained LTA coach Mark Greenhall. Junior club night is on Thursdays from 4.30 and junior tournaments/camps are organised during the school holidays.
Mark is also running a new group just started for people new to tennis or wanting to get back into tennis after a long gap. It is on Friday mornings from 9.30 - 11am and costs just £10. Anyone interested should either just come along or contact Mark.
Mark is also available for private lessons for club members.
The club is run by a committee of volunteers; elected annually, see the Contact Us page for details of committee members.
Our 2017 Chairman's Report is now available online (39Kb PDF file).
Men's tennis coaching
We are still looking for more takers for our Men's Tuesday Morning tennis starting this week.
This is tennis for all adult male club members wanting to put in a little extra during their week. We will be doing predominantly match play, with elements of coaching, fitness and strategy included and the cost is £10 for the hour and a half
We will be running Tuesday mornings from 10:00am - 11:30am and we are open for players of all abilities, but please feel free to contact me if you have any reservations.
