WHAT'S ON - TENNIS & SOCIAL
Our programme of club, social and team tennis continues throughout the year. Our season ‘kick-off’ is typically after the Easter holidays. If you are a new member looking to participate in any of our programmes, please reach out to our Head Coach, Tom Dean or our Club Captain, Mike Twinning for more information.
Nick Axford is our tennis section Social Secretary and runs a vibrant and highly enjoyable calendar of social events throughout the year. Nick also spearheads our volunteer rota for running the Clubhouse bar. You are welcome to get in touch if there are event ideas you’d like to contribute at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As much as we love our tennis, our membership also enjoys a full spectrum of social events throughout the year. A selection from our regular calendar includes casual evening b-b-q’s, bank holiday social tournaments, quiz nights, gin and wine tasting, junior discos, an annual summer ball and a Christmas party.
At this time, due to Covid-19 and the UK Government restrictions, our social events calendar is temporarily paused until larger gatherings are permitted.
FRIDAY CLUB NIGHTS
Our Friday Club Nights are a highlight of the social calendar at Dukes Wood. Due to their popularity, we are now running adult Friday Club Nights year round. The warmer months are particularly popular, frequently reaching 'sell-out' capacity in 24 hours. These are often quintessential British summer evenings with tennis and cricket in full swing at our Sportsclub. Club nights are a wonderful opportunity for our families, junior and senior tennis members to mingle and socialise together. Organised social tennis is open to 16 people and you must sign up in advance. In order to comply with LTA covid-safe guidelines, participants are put into two bubbles for the night and do not mix with the other. If you are interested in participating, please contact Gary Bunney.
Our members are passionate about their social tennis and we tend to have strong turnouts for organised events throughout the week. We welcome all abilities to participate! Our weekly calendar of social tennis is:
