On Wednesdays at 6pm, from 5th July for 6 weeks, we have FREE coaching for members with our club coach, Ritchie Forde.
Although targeted for beginners mainly there is still lots to benefit from for the better player too including stretching techniques, practice methods and some theory to help set your mind on the game.
Call him on 07960 305162 just to let him know you want to take part.
Tennis season is upon us! With spring in the air, long evenings of daylight and sunshine, now’s the time to sign up for the season ahead… League matches have just started, social tennis is getting more popular and still we welcome NEW MEMBERS! Check out our 2017 membership fees and how to join our splendid tennis club. Spring also sees the start of our Ladder tournaments on Saturday mornings and Tennis for Free on Sunday mornings is still going strong. Plus don’t forget the FREE coaching for six weeks in the summer when you join.
The 2017 season newsletter is being written and will soon be published, so keep an eye out for that, with the latest information about the clubhouse and courts, parking and housekeeping, and some dates for your diary…
We entered 2 teams in to the Wirral Winter League for the first time this year. This was intended as a chance to give our players some practice over the quiet winter months of 2016/17 and get our club name out there across the other side of the Mersey. Our captain was determined and put out a good mix of strong players with those that wanted some match practice. The results are in…and both teams won their league!
Sunday 17th July sees the return of the Great British Tennis Weekend events at the Mersey Bowmen, so we hope you’ll be coming down to join in?!
Bring your friends, acquaintances and any physios you happen to work with – they always seem to be good at tennis – for a day of:
• 10am-12pm: Tennis For Free (officially the busiest in the country now!)
• 12pm-2pm: Free social play for all-comers: young, old; handy or beginners; this is a chance to hop on court and try out some doubles, get a sense of the club and join in the fun
• 2pm-5pm: Social tennis for all. Not a member? Pay and play for a visitor’s fee of just £2.50 and see if you like it…
• A big fat 20% discount for anyone who joins our club on the day
It’s designed to give people a taste of tennis in the park – either with coaching at Tennis For Free, or social play after. So if you know anyone who’s ever cast a longing glance when you’ve mentioned the Bow, ask them along…
2016 Membership costs are:
Full adult membership: £130 JOIN for £104 on the day!
Concessions (unwaged, students, under 21s and country members): £65 JOIN for £52 on the day!
Juniors (under 19s – free if parent joins): £35 JOIN for £28 on the day!
Winter membership (1st September to April): £65
New adult members (not an MB member in the past five years): £100 JOIN for £80 on the day!
As ever, all volunteers, greeters and cake makers are welcomed. We need people to come down at 12 to play with and chat to potential new members, and generally show off the Bow experience. We’ve got all sorts of Great British Tennis booty on the way, so if you fancy joining in and nabbing a t-shirt or wristband, please email Danny for direction…
* While the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club might not agree, Mersey Bowmen’s Tennis For Free is now the best-attended programme in the country. Resounding proof indeed…
On Saturday 4th June we have a fun social doubles tennis event for all standards.
It’s a great chance to meet all our fantastic new members, catch up with everyone and have a great time together!
