Tennis

The Chalke Valley Tennis Club has two floodlit ‘all weather’ courts at the Chalke Valley Sports Centre and tennis is played throughout the year.  At present around 95 family and individual members, from both inside and outside the Valley, enjoy:-

  • Use of the courts at the CVSC whenever they are free, and also, by arrangement, of 2 other private courts in the Valley.  You can use the event calendar to check that the courts have not already been booked.  Then you can either just turn up, or make a booking by e-mailing tennis@mdodd.net.  See here for further details about using the private courts.
  • Social tennis ‘Mix-Ins’ on Thursday evenings from 6pm, and on Sunday mornings from 11am.  You can check if others are coming to the next mix-in session, or register that you are, via Doodle.
  • Junior and adult coaching (from the spring).
  • Entry into the draw for the opportunity to buy Wimbledon tickets that the club is allocated by the LTA.
  • Adult tournaments – we had a successful year in 2017, winning division 4 of the Sarum Winter league, and division 2 in the Shaftesbury League.
  • Club singles ladder.
  • Occasional social events.

Membership for 2018

If you’d like to join, please use the online form here – note that pricing for new members means that they only pay for the the part of the year still to run.

You need to be a member to use the MUGA (Multi-Use Games Area, by the Sports Centre pavilion) tennis courts – except for coaching lessons and guests (see below) – and members can opt to have their own key so that they can play whenever the MUGA is free.  If you are renewing your membership, and would like to enter the club Wimbledon ballot (see below), you need to re-join and opt in to the ballot by the end of 23rd February 2018.

Guidance on using the MUGA is available here.  Please remember to let down the nets after play, to minimise stress on the post fixings, and to tie up the nets so that they don’t rub and fray on the tarmac.

Non-members are welcome to play up to 5 times per year if they pay a session fee.  The fee is £3 per adult per session, £2 per session for each child or person in full-time education.  A player can play as a guest no more than five times in a year: after that the player needs to become a member, but then any guest fees that they have paid in that year will be refunded.  Please pay guest fees either (preferably) direct to the club account, number 01743042, sort code 30-97-41, or by cheque to the Chalke Valley Tennis Club, and forward your cheque to Matthew Dodd at Chapel Cottage, Chapel Lane, off North Street, Broadchalke SP5 5EN.
