Buriton Tennis Club
Formed in the late 1970s, Buriton Tennis Club, located on the Recreation Ground, a site which used to have a grass tennis court, believed to pre-dates the Second World War.
The Club’s four founders were keen to provide more opportunities for youngsters of the parish to play sport and to establish a club with informal, friendly traditions. The Club’s Committee strives to maintain these ‘family’ traditions.
The Club helps to fund a qualified Coach, Paul Evans, who provides excellent support for all ages and members.
With regular club sessions, tournaments and social events, the club is very active. Also teams represent the Club in local leagues and friendly matches: ladies, men’s and mixed doubles.
During recent summers the Club offered free coaching sessions and ‘open court’ time to local children (aged under 16).
