The Tennis group was one of the original BLAGSS sports groups when BLAGSS began in 1997. It is a successful and friendly group with about 45 players in total (with a current average of 16 players at each session). We love tennis and love having fun and socialising. The group has players of varying standards. Come along and join in.
We play every Sunday at 11.00 (weather permitting) on the outdoor courts at Hove Park, Old Shoreham Road, Hove (not far from Hove railway station) and on Wednesday mornings from 12:00 and on Friday Summer evenings from 5:30 p.m. We play short sets of doubles (and some singles), and then mix the teams around to play with new partners and opponents. That way everyone gets variety, the chance to play against others of the same standard or higher. It costs no more than £1.00 for 2 hours of tennis. We supply the tennis balls. Turn up and play whenever you are free to play. No need to inform us in advance. Ask for Blagss or Raymond.
We have a singles league of 2 divisions to allow you to play at other times. You play 4 matches during a 2 month period. The top 2 players in each division are promoted and the bottom 2 players go down a division. Contact coordinator Matt to join the competition.
Brighton & Hove City Parks League
BLAGSS Tennis puts 2 teams in the city-wide Brighton & Hove Parks League, which runs for 18 weeks from April to August. The teams are for those wishing to play competitive matches against other clubs playing at public parks in Brighton & Hove. BLAGSS plays its home matches at St. Anne's Well Gardens, Nizells Avenue (off Davigdor Road) Hove. We played in Divisions 2 and 3 this year (and finished 4th and 3rd respectively in each league of ten teams). Contact the coordinators if you want to join the team in 2016.
We have more women than men enquiring about the tennis group. We want to encourage more WOMEN PLAYERS to join this year. Please come along and join in.
