Tattershall Tennis Club under the lights

Rain, shine or snow, the juniors at Tattershall Tennis Club in Lincolnshire embraced the winter months, taking to the courts in the floodlights as the sun set in the distance.

Within eight months of opening, this family club has welcomed over 200 people of all backgrounds and ages, hosting a variety of sessions ranging from popular teen social coaching and cardio tennis sessions to mini/tots tennis and to high performance sessions.

However, beautiful sunsets aren’t the only thing on the horizon for this family club, as they have plenty of other exciting developments to come this year. With plans to build a dome for indoor play before the end of the year, Tattershall aspires to continue to grow and expand its current programs as well as introduce exciting new opportunities for people with disabilities and inclusion.
