WHY JOIN RIDDLESDOWN TENNIS?

Here's what our members have to say!

I JOINED RIDDLESDOWN  AS A NOVICE.  DESPITE MY COMPLETE LACK OF EXPERIENCE I WAS MADE TO FEEL VERY WELCOME AND, WITH ADVICE AND GUIDANCE FROM A NUMBER OF MEMBERS, I QUICKLY GRASPED THE BASICS OF THE GAME.  I HAVE NOW HAVE REACHED A POINT WHERE I FEEL I CAN PLAY TO A  COMPETITIVE LEVEL.   SINCE I JOINED THE CLUB I HAVE IMPROVED MY FITNESS AND HEALTH AND HAVE MADE A NUMBER OF FRIENDS.

Richard Davis

I HAVE BEEN PLAYING AT RIDDLESDOWN SINCE I WAS 5. I LEARNT TO PLAY TENNIS HERE AND I LOVE PLAYING THE MATCHES AND REPRESENTING THE CLUB AS CAPTAIN! THERE IS ALSO A GREAT SOCIAL SCENE AND SINKING A FEW RED STRIPES AFTER A WIN IS A HIGHLIGHT!

Matthew Johnson

I STARTED PLAYING ABOUT 5 YEARS AGO AS A BEGINNER HAVING NEVER REALLY PLAYED BEFORE. I INSTANTLY REALISED IT'S GREAT WAY TO KEEP FIT, SOCIALISE WITH FRIENDS AND AFTER A WHILE I GAINED THE CONFIDENCE TO ENTER INTO THE CLUB TOURNAMENT IN SINGLES, DOUBLES AND MIXED DOUBLES AND I WAS ABLE TO REACH THE FINAL OF THE SINGLES AND ALSO WIN THE MIXED DOUBLES WITH JACK EGAN.

Gemma Huntley

I JOINED RIDDLESDOWN ABOUT FOUR YEARS AGO.  I HAVE MADE MANY FRIENDS AND ENJOY PLAYING SOCIAL TENNIS AT LEAST TWICE A WEEK.  NOBODY PUTS ANY PRESSURE ON YOU AND THE MORE EXPERIENCED PLAYERS ARE VERY SUPPORTIVE, GIVING HELPFUL CRITICISM TO HELP IMPROVE YOUR GAME AT WHATEVER STANDARD YOU MIGHT BE.  WE HAVE A BALL MACHINE WHICH IS VERY USEFUL AND CERTAINLY KEEPS YOU FIT.  WE ARE OPEN TO BEGINNERS AND COMPETITIVE PLAYERS OF ALL AGES.  EVERYONE IS VERY FRIENDLY AND WE HAVE A GOOD SOCIAL SIDE TO THE CLUB.  HAVING BEEN A SWIMMER MOST OF MY LIFE I NEEDED A NEW CHALLENGE AND I HAVE THOROUGHLY ENJOYED EVERY ASPECT OF THIS CLUB.

June Atherton

THE FIRST IMPRESSION THAT STRIKES YOU IS THE FRIENDLY ATMOSPHERE AROUND THE CLUB. A COMPLETELY INCLUSIVE CLUB OPEN TO ALL ABILITIES WHERE EVERYONE MIXES IN. RIDDLESDOWN IS EXCEPTIONALLY RUN WITH A DEDICATED CHAIRMAN AND COMMITTEE. THROUGHOUT THE YEAR THERE ARE NUMEROUS SOCIAL EVENTS WHICH ARE FUN AND ALWAYS WELL PLANNED AND RUN. OPPORTUNITIES ARE THERE FOR PLAYERS TO ENTER INTO COMPETITIVE TENNIS (INTER CLUB AND AGAINST OTHER CLUBS) OR JUST TO HAVE A FRIENDLY KNOCK. HAVING BEEN A MEMBER IN EXCESS OF 20 YRS I CAN RECOMMEND RIDDLESDOWN HIGHLY FOR ALL STANDARD OF PLAYERS.
