The Tennis group was one of the original sports groups when BLAGSS began in 1997. It is a successful and friendly group who play on Wednesdays Fridays and Sundays at Hove Park.
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.
How We Play
We have an active Whatsapp group and organise short sets of doubles and some singles. People are mixed around so everyone gets to play with new partners and opponents. That way everyone gets variety, the chance to play against others of the same standard lesser or higher. New members turning up on Sundays will be mixed in and made to feel welcome.
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 Friday 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 for the first few visits prior to full membership. New members turning up on Sundays will not be charged for their first visit.
Where We Play
We play three times a week throughout the year - every Wednesday Thursday and Friday at 11am to 1pm (court 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.
