We will be running 6 weeks of Summer holiday courses at Hawker centre, following all the latest Covid-19 guidelines. For the full timetable and booking instructions, please follow the link below!
PLEASE HIT 'REFRESH' TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE VIEWING THE LATEST UPDATE. NEW UPDATES ARE IN BOLD.
HAWKER RE-OPENING!: HAWKER IS NOW OPEN 8AM-8PM WEEKDAYS, AND 9AM-5PM WEEKENDS. FROM SEPTEMBER, WEEKDAY OPENING TIMES WILL EXTEND UNTIL 9PM.
SUMMER HOLIDAYS: JEREMY IS RUNNING SUMMER COURSES FOR BEGINNERS/IMPROVERS, AND NICK IS RUNNING TRAINING SESSIONS FOR ADVANCED PLAYERS. THE FULL TIMETABLE AND ONLINE BOOKING FOR ALL AUGUST COURSES CAN BE FOUND HERE.
COURT HIRE: WE HOPE TO MAKE THIS AVAILABLE SOON (NOT BEFORE 15TH AUGUST) VIA CLUBSPARK. PLEASE CHECK BACK HERE FOR LINK AND OPENING HOURS.
MATCHPLAY: WE ARE TRIALLING PRIVATELY ORGANISED MATCH SESSIONS ON SUNDAY'S FOR SQUAD LEVEL PLAYERS. THESE HAVE GONE WELL, AND WILL CONTINUE. HOWEVER, REGULAR MATCHPLAY IS LIKELY NOT TO RESUME UNTIL SEPTEMBER.
SUMMER TOURNAMENT 2020: THIS WOULD HAVE TAKEN PLACE ON 5TH JULY, WHICH TURNED OUT TO BE EXTREMELY WINDY, AND WOULD HAVE BEEN OUR WORST WEATHER DAY FOR OUR BIGGEST EVENT OF THE YEAR! I HAVE DECIDED TO CANCEL THIS YEAR'S EVENT COMPLETELY. SEPTEMBER COULD BE AN OPTION, BUT I ENVISAGE THAT EITHER SUCH AN EVENT STILL WON'T BE ABLE TO TAKE PLACE, OR WE WILL HAVE A VERY BUSY MONTH ALREADY WITH OTHER MATCHES/TOURNAMENTS/EVENTS. FA CUP TENNIS 2020 WILL DEFINITELY GO AHEAD THOUGH!
LTA/GOVERNMENT STATEMENT 1ST JUNE: SINGLES AND DOUBLES PLAY BETWEEN PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT HOUSEHOLDS IS ALLOWED. COACHING WITH UP TO 6 PEOPLE ON A COURT (INCLUDING THE COACH) IS NOW ALLOWED, SUBJECT TO VENUE'S ABILITY TO DO SO IN A SAFE MANNER. Latest advice from LTA can be found here.
COMPETITIONS: PREMIER TEAM TENNIS 2020 HAS BEEN SCHEDULED FOR THE AUTUMN TERM IN A KNOCK-OUT FORMAT, WHICH WE HOPE WILL BE ABLE TO GO AHEAD AS PLANNED FOR OUR AWESOME U14'S! All LTA competitions have been cancelled until 31st August 2020, including county team tennis. All age groups of Team Tennis have now been cancelled.
REFUNDS+CREDITS: All cancelled classes for the Winter term, from Friday 20th March 5.45pm onwards, will be carried over to next term, or whenever we are able to re-start the classes. All Matchplay credits will remain active. Any questions, please ask.
Do look after yourselves, help older people if you can, keep smiling, and keep finding reasons to enjoy every day despite the shocking times we are in. My message to anyone who is worried or stressed: Focus your attention on all the ways that this crisis could end up being good for you and your family, both right now and in the long run.

Our most important update source. Roughly at the start of each new term this newsletter is updated with all the latest news, and most important information coming out of the club. April's newsletter is a bit late due to the pandemic, but is now here!
You could go to an online retailer, or a budget superstore, and you may save a few pounds, but you won't get better overall value. Here's the best option, pay a visit to RichmondSports or SheenSports!
They are managed by enthusiastic and highly knowledgeable staff, equally passionate about sports as they are about the local community, where they support many local clubs and schools, including ours.
Your individual needs will be met in a way the bigger retailers can't match, in terms of better advice, a more personal service, and a genuine desire to fulfil your sporting needs whatever they may be.
Being part of Hawker Tennis also entitles you to 10% off, so you'll be getting excellent all-round value, whilst helping them to keep helping us and other local clubs.
