Kettering Tennis Club
Kettering Tennis Club has a rich 50 year history. Originally founded in the late 1960s by a small group of enthusiasts who worked for the Post Office, who, for many years, played as Pengos Tennis Club. (‘Pengos’ is an acronym for Postal Engineers & Operators). On offers is 3 weekly club nights, a full coaching programme, club tournaments, league matches and social events.
The Club range of abilities spans those who have only just started playing tennis to accomplished players who have won League and Tournament titles, as well as a whole bunch of recreational players who enjoy regular club night tennis with a wide circle of club friends. Members enjoy play with each other at the three weekly sessions, which are a great way to stay active and play tennis. Outside the club’s programme, members are able to book courts for their own games.
The club’s LTA qualified club coaches run regular training and coaching classes. These programmes are available throughout the year. Courses are available for children from the age of 5 as well as anybody in the Club who is keen to improve certain aspects of their play.
The Club currently has Ladies’, Men’s and Mixed teams in the local leagues. Members enjoy playing as part of a successful competitive history with numerous East Northants titles. As well as the odd Northampton League title.
In addition to club play, fun doubles tournaments take place at the beginning and the end of the season. Also the club hosts a league presentation evening with quiz at the end of the summer season. Also members organise an occasional visit to a professional tournament.
Annual membership at Kettering Tennis Club starts from just £70 for juniors and £120 for adults. And therefore the club is easy to join and affordable for all.
