Current news from Hagley Lawn Tennis Club
It’s a new year and a new decade. Time to dust off those old racquets or even purchase a new one! Tennis is available all year round at your local club. It was formed in March 2018, following the merger of the two village clubs. There are three newly resurfaced courts, two of which are floodlit. We are located on the left-hand side of the A456 just as you enter Blakedown, heading in the Kidderminster direction. The setting is great for families as we are adjacent to a play park and the community field.
There are regular mix-ins on Friday and Sunday mornings plus Monday evenings, which means you can just turn up and have a game. If you’ve not played for a while or you’re a beginner, why not take advantage of the various coaching courses available. We also enter a number of teams in the local leagues which is a great way of meeting players from other clubs. In addition, we have an annual club tournament with matches played throughout the Summer, culminating in a Finals Day in September.
Have we whetted your appetite? We hope so. For further details, just go to the website clubspark.lta.org.uk/blakedown tennis club and we’ll look forward to seeing you on court!

Hagley Tennis Club was formed on 15 May 1980 and play started on 19 July 1980 on the Haybridge High School Courts. The first ball was played by Mrs Hammersley.
In January 1986 the Club moved from the Haybridge courts to the courts sited at the Catholic School. This included moving the famous Club Hut which was carried across the road. The Club now has improved facilities; a Club Pavilion and a secured area within the grounds of the Catholic School. It runs an annual Club Tournament and enters teams into the Hereford and Worcester and the Kidderminster Leagues.
The club runs a number of American Tournaments on Sunday afternoons 2.30 p.m. – 5.00 p.m., open to non-members (not juniors) who would like to come along and join in our very friendly club.
