Tennis

 

Currently there are just over 200 paid up Members of the Section who pay an annual charge of 500 baht. This charge entitles Members to join in the “mix-ins”, tournaments, the internal leagues and the Club teams. These funds help to support these and other events that are organised. Please contact Khun Amnat in the Fitness Centre to be on the mailing list. This will provide information directly to Members.

The Club has four hard courts available for bookings which can be made in person, at the Fitness Centre, thirteen days in advance from 8.00am in the morning. Alternatively Members can telephone the Fitness Centre from 8.00am to 10.00pm Monday to Friday and 8.00am to 9.00pm on Saturday and Sundays. The cost for a court is 50 baht during daylight hours and 100 baht in the evenings. The Club levies a fine of 500 baht for a no-show or a late cancellation. This charge can be waived in extenuating circumstances at the discretion of the Management.

Club knockers are available for Members to book throughout the week. Their charge varies between 400 baht and 500 baht per hour, depending on their experience. The Member must book and pay for the court. Bookings are made through the Fitness Centre and late cancellations and no-shows will be charged in full, including the Club fine.

Junior tennis coaching is available at the Club. Information and bookings can be obtained by contacting the fitness staff during opening hours. Currently coaching opportunities for juniors are available on Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings with courses offered during school holiday periods.

We hold a tennis “mix-in” format four times a week. All four courts are booked from 6.00pm to 10.00pm on Monday, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. All you have to do is turn up, sign in and play. A Member is on duty at each session to sort out playing groups and allocating courts. The whole purpose of these evenings is to promote the social side of tennis and to encourage people to come and play tennis whatever their standard.

During the week Ladies “mix-ins” take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9.00am to 11.00am.

During the year, Inter-Club matches are organised against other major clubs in Bangkok both for juniors and seniors. There are other external fixtures that are organised and we also arrange internal competitions as well.

Members also have the opportunity to take part in a number of age group tournaments that are organised both in Bangkok and in the provinces during the year.

Our own British Club Championships take place annually in January, February and March each year. They include men’s singles and doubles, ladies singles and doubles, mixed doubles and age group single and doubles events for juniors. Thanks to our generous sponsors we are able to offer some very good prizes to the winners and runner-ups in each category.

We hope this summary provides Members with a broad outline of what is available . If you require any further details then please contact Khun Amnat.
