For those of you who don’t know much about Cringleford Tennis Club, we have four hard-courts and two grass courts adjacent to the Pavilion on the Playing Fields, Oakfields Road, NR4 6XF. The club has around 220 members and caters for all standards of tennis, both for adults and for juniors.

If you are interested in joining the weekly club-night sessions contact Fraser MacMillan (507077) or Malcolm Robins (01508 470296). Just turn up for tennis any Tuesday or Thursday evening from 6.30 - 8.30pm! A member of the committee will always be on hand to welcome you and to organise the play. There is also open club tennis on Monday mornings from 10.00 - 11.45 am.

 

The club has a full programme of sporting and social activities. There are tournaments, competitions and social evenings to keep you entertained throughout the year. Mixed doubles on Saturday mornings is a popular event and so are the weekday club sessions. In addition, there are several Sunday-afternoon tournaments and a series of knock-out competitions that run through the summer.

 

We offer a full range of coaching opportunities with Lucy Brooks (LTA Level 4), Anna Linton (LTA Level 2) and some additional coaches. For adults, there is a basic-level “rusty racquets” coaching group, a popular ladies’ coaching group on Friday mornings and a new Cardio-tennis groupon Thursday mornings. For juniors, there are two mini-tennis coaching groups that meet on Wednesdays (Y2/Y3) two on Thursdays (R/Y1) and two sessions of tennis coaching on Fridays afternoons for the age-range 8-18 yrs.  Further information about coaching sessions is on the website – or contact Nick Brewin (503770, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ).

 

This summer, the club will have nine teams competing in county or city leagues at various levels.  Last year, our top Men’s team came first in City League Division 1 and the CL Ladies' B and CL Men's B teams were both promoted. We also have teams in Fleur de Lys; Jewsons and Vets (mixed) leagues. Matches take place in the evenings from May to end August and the fixture dates are set well in advance. To join one of these teams, you need to contact the appropriate team captain or Tony Gammage (01953 453633).

 

In summary, we are small friendly (not-for-profit) club run by a group of volunteers. New members are most welcome. Please contact the membership secretary, Sarah Scott, for an application form (email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or tel: 505720).
