Tennis facilities upgraded...

Regular visitors to the YMCA Hawker Centre may have noticed something different about the three tennis courts. They have been completely resurfaced and equipped with new nets and posts. Floodlights and fences were refurbished at the end of 2008, so we now have a first class tennis facility!

The new courts are also marked with mini-tennis orange baselines, one of very few centres in the whole of the UK to have such markings. The baselines help very young players who are not ready to play on a full size court.

To coincide with these exciting changes, we have launched a dedicated YMCA Hawker Centre tennis website to support the tennis programme. The site features details of adult and junior courses, events, ‘pay & play’, matchplay sessions and Hawker Jet matches. We hope it will grow and evolve over the next few months into a useful resource for all Hawker tennis players. Click here to visit
