The Tennis side of things has been part of the club since the beginning. Over the winter of 2008/2009 a programme was put in place to resurface the tennis courts, with the help of the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) two all new weather courts were put down to enable club members to play tennis all year round! A first for STBC!
The original courts were laid in 1947 and were black shale. They were difficult to maintain and needed dragging after every match. So in 2009, with the help of the LTA, new open poured tarmac courts were put in place. These are all weather courts, able to be played upon within 10 minutes of it stopping raining 24/7.
From April to August we have teams playing in the Slazenger Calderdale Tennis League. On Tuesday there is one Mixed Doubles Team and on Thursday there are 3 Men's Doubles Teams and 1 Ladies Doubles Team playing in the same league.
Coaching takes place on a Saturday morning. Please contact the Director of Tennis, June Drury, for further details on 07960 159890
