Herefordshire and Worcestershire Club News

Pershore Tennis Centre

The team at Pershore Tennis Centre served up a winning combination to raise money for new courts at the local Club.

Joining Davis and Fed Cup players – including Danny Sapsford - they travelled to the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton, to play 24 hours of tennis to raise funds for the new courts to encourage more people to play the game and join the local Club. As part of a tennis marathon with other Clubs, Danny and his Bright Ideas for Charity joined our Pershore players on court.

Steve Bauer, Head Coach at Pershore Tennis Centre – currently the County’s Coach of the Year – said that the event was ”a surreal experience, so incredible to play with the pros and for such a worthy cause too”

Danny Sapsford, the Founder of Bright Ideas for Tennis, said “It was great to be able to include Pershore Tennis Centre with our event this year; with 16 Davis or Fed Cup players and 12 tennis venues all trying to raise funds for their respective club projects. Over 100 club players participated throughout the weekend.”

He continued “I visited Pershore Tennis Centre a couple of years ago to provide an Open Day and they proved then what a remarkable energy and enthusiasm they have.  From the coaches, committee and right down to the members themselves, they are a great example of what can be achieved at a tennis venue.  It is no wonder that the Club can boast some of the best facilities in the West Midlands.”

And that’s not all! Coach Julian Ramus will skydive in aid of the charity and to raise funds for his Club later on this month, so please do support them if you can by donating via https://my donate.bt.com/fundraisers/pershoretenniscentre.

Wollaston Tennis Club

Twenty members from Wollaston Lawn Tennis Club were out again braving the elements for their 2018 Valentines Day Tournament on Saturday 10th Feb

Thankfully the rain stayed away throughout the 3 hour tournament at the Prestwood Drive Club. The format ensured that no one played with the same partner twice with Round Robin matches of 8 games changing pairs after 4. Sudden death deuce was used to keep all matches in Sync.

The main tournament was won by Chris Brown and Bec Yates, with Paul Wootton and Pam Cartwright close behind in second place. This is traditionally the first tournament of the WLTC calendar whilst it is a fun and inclusive event, it is also, of course a competitive once, just to get the season started. 

Tournament Organiser Max Bywater said "We have now run the Valentines Day tournament for the last 3 years and it has proved to be really successful hence running it again this year. Despite the recent chilly weather, it was therefore good to see the tournament so well supported and some great tennis played to."

Clay comes to Pershore Tennis Centre

Pershore Tennis Centre are pleased to announce that that they now have two new artificial clay courts ready for play, the old hard courts were re-surfaced in November with the help of the club’s sinking fund and a £9,000 grant from Severn Waste Environmental Fund. The club chose Tiger Turf Clay Court Pro contracted through Chiltern Sports.

Sarah McCormick, Club Chair at Pershore Tennis Centre said:

Attracting and retaining membership is a constant challenge for all tennis clubs and our club is no exception. We work very hard on our Open Days and promoting ourselves in the local community but we felt we must invest in new facilities to be a desirable club to join. With our five outdoor hard courts approaching the end of their playing life, this was the perfect chance for us to take a new direction with our facilities and change our outdoor court surface. There are a variety of different resurfacing options available to us and a different type of court not only provides a welcome variety in speed of play but also helps us stand out from the crowd. We hope that a different court surface may be the key to getting new feet through the door and onto the court.
