Welcome to our Website!
Welcome to Kidderminster Tennis Club’s website, which gives you details of the Club and its aims and purpose. The Club is located in Baxter Gardens, Birmingham Road, Kidderminster, Worcestershire and has two floodlit courts and a clubhouse.
The process of forming Kidderminster Tennis Club (KTC) began in 1990. Working with WFDC and a Consortium, Ray Shuck masterminded a plan to turn a poorly used and badly vandalized park, Baxter Gardens, into a recreational facility. This was one of five researches into a suitable/cost-worthy venue for KTC. The upgrading and refurbishment of the two existing courts, the provision of fencing and a secure, lockable clubhouse was made. A committee, under the chairmanship of the founder and dedicated tennis professional, Ray Shuck, was established. KTC began play in the first week of June 1996 following maturity of the acrylic surface. For anniversary purposes, the official opening of KTC took place on 29 September 1996. The Club has thrived since then with an annual membership of well over 80 and continued development of the facilities under a different chairman and committee.
KTC is there to serve the local community. The aims and objects of KTC shall be to encourage and foster participation by all groups in the sport of tennis in all its forms. Club membership is open to all groups. KTC works hand-in-hand with WFDC and is registered with the LTA and the H and W LTA. The Club offers match play – it is a competing member of the Kidderminster and District and the Hereford and Worcester Tennis Leagues – and recreational tennis ‘mix-ins’ plus coaching and promoting of tennis, especially to young people. The Club has a qualified LTA coach who, throughout the year, holds ‘Mini Tennis’; ‘Junior Aces’; school holiday community; tennis festival and one-to-one courses. KTC holds Open Days during the summer and is also active in holding other events, for instance, tournaments; club championships; dinners and so on.
Membership runs from 1st April to 31st March each year and there are five types of membership: Adult; Junior; Student; Senior Citizen and Family. Our rates for the current year are very reasonable - £115 for a family with lower rates for single persons in the other categories.
