Buxton Tennis Club is part of the Buxton Cricket, Bowls and Tennis
club and the site on Park Road was first established by the Cricket
Club in 1853. Major tennis tournaments were held in Buxton from 1883
and it was the venue for the All-England Ladies Doubles Tennis
Championships until 1951. The current club is the proud heir of this
tradition, providing a range of social and competitive tennis for all
standards of player.
The 3 all-weather courts are set in a beautiful location alongside the
cricket ground and bowling green with open views to the south-East,
and are within easy walking distance of Buxton Town Centre. The courts
have recently been repainted, and we've recently built a storage
shed/tea room, with the surrounds generally improved by the addition
of flowers and a herb garden on the shed roof (thanks to lots of
people, but especially Jek Jacobs and Lin Robinson, for this).
The club offers the opportunity to take part in social play, with open
sessions on Saturday mornings and Monday evenings (we play ALL YEAR,
unless rain or snow are actually falling) and competitive play in the
Sheffield and District leagues, as well as just playing when you feel
like it. We are also running a ladies open session on Tuesday evenings,
and we will be running occasional tournaments. The club calendar has full details of the various scheduled sessions--any time that is not booked on this calendar is free.
