Open Club Sessions

Pocklington Tennis Club logoPocklington 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 the autumn/winter, club mornings are on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am, with Club Nights on Mondays from 5pm. In summer, club sessions are held on Saturday, Sunday and Monday evenings from 6pm.

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.
