Winter Tennis


We are usually able to offer winter indoor tennis on the basis set out below, however, in 2020 due to the coronavirus restrictions Giggleswick School has been unable to offer this facility to us.

SUNDAYS, WEDNESDAYS and FRIDAYS 6 p.m. to 7.30 p.m.

We book the Sports Hall at Giggleswick School  for indoor tennis on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays (6pm-7.30pm) during the autumn term (September to December) and the spring term (January  to  April). Stephen Dew maintains a list of members wishing to organise sessions and sends out a schedule  before the start of each term. The cost of each session is £26.78 or £6.70 per player for doubles for the one and a half hours’ playing time. Members who wish to be added to the schedule of session leaders should contact Stephen (01729 825183)

Session Leaders and Payment

Session leaders are expected to organise players, collect fees and forward them to Stephen within FIVE days. Make cheques payable to Austwick Tennis Club.

The Sports Hall & Court

Giggleswick School prefer us to park behind the new Dining Hall. We are also responsible for setting up and dismantling the net which is stored in the furthest cupboard on the right hand side. The switches for the lights are located to the left of the entrance to the court and should be switched off when leaving. The main door is usually unlocked. If not, access can be achieved through the side door to the squash courts using a security code, which is provided to session leaders with the schedule for each term.
