At Pocklington Tennis Club we welcome players of all ages and ability. If you are new to the sport or a seasoned player, there is a place for you at the club.
Open Club Sessions
Pocklington Tennis Club has thriving and well attended club sessions, where members of all ages and abilities are welcome to come along and play social tennis. Various sessions are held each week throughout the year.
In summer, club sessions are held on Saturday, Sunday and Monday evenings from 6pm. In the autumn/winter, club mornings are on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am, with Club Nights on Mondays from 6pm. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, these are currently for members only.
Club sessions are a great opportunity for you to introduce yourself to the game and you can be sure of a warm welcome. What’s more there is no commitment required. Come to as many or as few as you like. You don’t even have to come for a full session or arrive at the very start – just drop in when you can.
Non-members can attend Club Sessions for just £5 per session – this is limited to a maximum of 3 sessions.
Tennis coaching, organised by our professional LTA coach Sean Evans, is available for all ages and all abilities.
It’s never too young to get into tennis and it’s great fun too!
Pocklington Tennis Club has a thriving junior section which features club nights, a coaching programme covering beginners to performance squads, holiday camps, tournaments and team tennis. We have teams entered into local leagues as well as supporting individuals who wish to take their tennis further with competitive tennis.
Our junior section is coordinated by Melinda Watson and Shelley Morgan.
The club also run some tournaments where you get your chance to pit your skills against fellow members.
This is a fun one-day tournament usually run at the beginning of the season. All members are welcome regardless of ability and partners are drawn on the day.
The Club Tournament
A tournament where all members are welcome to participate in the Mixed, Ladies or Mens singles and doubles events. The Club Tournament is held in August and culminates in a finals day in September.
When not in use for league matches or organised events, the courts are available to all members free of charge and at a rate of £10 per hour for non-members. Courts can be booked through our online booking system. Need more information about our booking system? Visit our book a court page.
Members can invite non-members as guests to join them for private court bookings, however there is a fee of £5 per guest per hour (or pro rata).
Refunds for cancellations of court bookings will only be given when a cancellation is made more than 24 hours before the start time that the court has been booked for.
Pocklington Tennis Club is committed to making every reasonable effort to ensure the Club’s six courts are available for community use. However, individual users have the responsibility to ascertain whether it is safe to use the courts – factors for this include, but are not limited to, the prevailing weather conditions.
It is the user’s responsibility to ensure that all those involved in playing tennis are made aware of the fact that they do so in all respects at their own risk.
Before commencing play, please ensure that you are wearing appropriate, clean footwear (we recommend changing into your tennis footwear at the seating area outside of the club house) and that the court is clear of any debris such as leaves and twigs. This helps in keeping the courts in optimal condition, making the playing experience as good as possible.
