Etching Hill Tennis Club
Etching Hill Tennis Club aims to encourage all players regardless of ability whether in competitive tennis or just social. Situated in a pleasant location on the outskirts of Rugeley, the Club is extremely well supported with a wide age range of members.
The club was officially opened on Saturday 26th July 1952 with an exhibition match took place between Miss Kay Tuckey who at the time was a No.2 Wightman Cup Player and Flo Judy Wallis an RAF champion and Wimbledon player. After this event, a Carnival Dance took place in the Village Hall. The club’s rich history continues to this day.
Club sessions (when everyone ‘mixes in’) are usually Sunday mornings, Tuesday and Thursday evenings. All senior and intermediate members are welcome, along with selected juniors.
At other times there is atleast one court available for members to use. And so you have a good choice of options.
If you’re looking to improve then help is available thanks to a superb coaching team. They offer a range of group sessons for adults and kids as well as private lessons.
In terms of match play there are men’s, ladies and mixed teams compete in the Wilson Staffordshire Lawn Tennis League. As well as teams in the Burton Area League.
Etching Hill Tennis Club offers a range of memberships, which cater to all types of players. And as adult membership costs around £2 per week, it’s affordable to join the club.
Also, there is a cribbage team that play in a league on Tuesday evenings. During the winter months, the club runs a table tennis and pool competition. The many social and sporting events, which take place throughout the year are open to members and visitors.
