Woodfield Tennis at its finest!
We have 4 of the best floodlit tennis courts in Wolverhampton. If you want to play tennis at a club we can cater for all levels. Tennis lessons and coaching is available every Saturday morning for juniors. Beginner and improver tennis sessions can also be arranged.
Who are we?
Woodfield Tennis Section aims to cater for players of all ages and ability, whilst trying to achieve a good quality of play. The philosophy of the club is for informality and fun and to encourage as many people as possible to play and improve their game. Based at Woodfield Social and Sports Club, we have 4 excellent floodlit artificial grass courts and use of the bar (with a pool table, snooker tables, darts and Sky TV) to help us recover afterwards.
How do I get involved?
If you are new to the area or haven’t played tennis for many years then why not turn up on a Wednesday evening at 6.30pm for a mix-in night? We do our best to be friendly and welcoming and you are welcome to pop along twice for free before deciding whether you want to join our club or not. We typically plays men’s doubles tennis on the Wednesday night, but there are often singles games taking place too. If you want to chat before you pop along then give any of the committee a call. We will be pleased to speak to you.
How do I become a member?
Membership runs from 1st April to 31st March each year and we have a range of memberships including concessions for juniors, students and pensioners. A sports membership (e.g. tennis) includes social membership giving you access to the 5 full size snooker tables; you only have to pay for the lights.
Do I need to book a court?
No! Once you are a member you can just turn up and play. You may wish to check beforehand whether there is a league match taking place (typically Friday evenings) but generally this is not an issue.
- Monday (men only) @ 6.30pm
- Wednesday (mixed) @ 6.30pm
Can I bring along non-members?
Non-members can come along to up to two mix-in evenings before deciding whether to join. To bring a non-member for a game at any other time a guest fee of £5/visit applies. If there are members already on the courts then they would take preference over non-members.
Are there any competitions I can play in?
Club competitions take place throughout both the summer and winter. We run a Captain’s Cup tournament, both singles and doubles with your best 2 or 3 scores counting so it doesn’t matter if you have a bad match or cannot make certain dates. The prizes are significant!
What about league tennis?
We currently have one team in the Staffordshire league and we play various fixtures both home and away throughout the summer. We will consider anyone for the team, just come down and play and show you are interested!
Can I get Wimbledon tickets?
Woodfield is allocated a number of tickets to Wimbledon each year and a draw is done each spring for tickets. You need to be a member of Woodfield and a member of British Tennis to be eligible for the draw.
Is there any coaching?
Coach: Eslam Shaaban
Tel: 07528 145 445
Times: Saturday mornings are dedicated to junior coaching.
For any other coaching sessions get in touch with Eslam to organise a 1:1 session or you can do so in a small group. His rates are very reasonable and he is an excellent player and coach.
Last few bits…
The Section has very few rules and those we do have are primarily designed to protect the playing surface. Thus we ask people to wear non-marking trainers. Please be careful not to spill food or drinks on the court. Do not take footballs or bikes onto the courts. The courts have a combination lock and the code is changed regularly. We ask members to not pass this onto non-members.
The tennis courts really are an excellent resource and so we endeavour to look after them.
We hope to see you at the club soon so we can give you a warm welcome!
