Tennis

The Tennis group was one of the original 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. We are always looking for new players to come and join us. in addition to our weekly sessions there are plenty of opportunities to play more competitive matches in the Singles and Parks League.

 


How We Play

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.  Turn up and play whenever you are free to play. No need to inform us in advance.

Where We Play

We play twice a week throughout the year - every Wednesday (courts 4 & 5 ) and Sunday (Courts 3, 4 & 5) from 11 a.m. until 1.00 p.m. ( weather permitting) on the outdoor courts at Hove Park Tennis Alliance, Hove Park.

What It Costs

Blagss Tennis is a separate club within the umbrella of the Hove Park Tennis Alliance (HPTA) and we operate within this under our own HPTA  Blagss Membership**.  Annual membership £70. Which also gives you access to pre book courts on line for FREE outside of our Wednesday and Sunday sessions.

As we supply balls there is a nominal charge every time you play of 50p.

 

General Blagss Members (£15 pa) but not a member of HPTA Blagss Membership** (see above) will be charged each visit £3.50

Singles tournament

 

During summer we have a men's and ladies singles tournament.   Matt sends out details to our members around June/July.

Contact coordinator Matt to join the competition.
