Ombersley and Doverdale Tennis Club
Founded in 1988, Ombersley and Doverdale Tennis Club is located in the village of Ombersley in the heart of Worcestershire. The friendly club welcomes new members and promotes the playing of tennis for all ages, juniors, seniors and rusty returners! There’s a fantastic programme on offer with excellent coaching, regular social tennis and match play.
If you love playing tennis then you’ll enjoy the social side of the club. Each week there are 6 club sessions and therefore members can play as often as they feel like it. These sessions are also great for meeting new people while working on your game play. In addition it’s easy to book courts for your own game. So whether you’re looking for some new players or well kept facilities Ombersley and Doverdale Tennis Club offers all of this and more.
The club has a comprehensive coaching program lead by head coach Mike Langston. Kids can start young with LTA mini tennis, which uses fun game play to teach the basis of tennis. Under Mike’s watchful eye, juniors can progress and develop their skills. Adults can also access a range of coaching for all levels. There’s even kids tennis camps in school holidays.
Many opportunities for competitive match play are available. Teams compete in the Hereford & Worcestershire Tennis Leagues and the club hosts an annual tournament. So if you’re looking for a challenge, the club provides many.
With a range of options, joining Ombersley and Doverdale Tennis Club is easy. For example, adult membership costs just over £2 per week. The club also offers a court on a pay and play basis, available via The Village Bakery.
In 2011, the club was recognised for their outstanding junior programme and was awarded by Hereford and Worcestershire LTA, ‘Junior Club Programme of the Year 2011’ and ‘Club of the Year 2011’.
