Hightown Tennis Club
Hightown Tennis Club lies tucked away in a quiet spot between Gainsborough Road and Ruskin High School in Crewe. It has been there for nearly 90 years. The club’s rich history dates back to 1922, when four enterprising members of the Congregational Church which stood on Hightown in Crewe (hence the Club’s official name ‘Crewe Congregational Tennis Club’), decided to start a tennis club. At first the club used courts belonging to Union St. Baptist Church but in 1926 the present site was acquired.
Today, the club offers members an affordable option for year round tennis with a range of weekly activities.
Club members meet on Thursday mornings all year round for social tennis. In the summer, there also social play sessions on Saturday afternoons and Wednesday evenings. This means you can turn up and play tennis all year round. If you already have a partner, then you can book a court easily.
While the club lacks a comprehensive coaching programme, there is junior coaching on some Saturday mornings during the Summer months.
In 1947 Hightown Tennis Club was one of the founder members of the Nantwich and District Tennis League, the fore-runner of today’s Slazenger South and Mid-Cheshire Tennis League. It is the only founding Club still playing in the League. Also a number of friendly tournaments take place throughout the year.
You can choose between full and off peak membership with adult, junior and student options available for both. This means that the club is affordable for all local residents. Visitor’s fees are £2 per session with a maximum of 3 sessions per season.
