Shadwell Tennis Club
Shadwell Tennis Club started in the 1970s when the owner of the Old Hall at Shadwell offered a few people the chance to play tennis on an existing court in their garden. Eventually a formal Club was established and the land was purchased. Adjacent land was acquired later and a second court was built, and subsequently a clubhouse. The club is a registered Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) and member of Leeds Sports Federation.
As a social club, members enjoy meeting each week for friendly games as well as the chance to catch up with each other. Plus it’s easy to arrange your own games and visitors are welcome.
Coaching is available for groups or one to one, for all ages and abilities. Adults who are either just starting or returning after a break can join Tennis Xpress. This is an adults beginner-improver coaching course, which is great for all standards. Lessons are drill-based and so you will get a good cardio workout as well!
The club mainly focuses on social play and therefore doesn’t currently run any teams in local leagues. However, as Leeds as a superb range of tennis club, you have a number of pick from if you want to play in matches.
