New Members

Introduction

We're always delighted to welcome new members to the club and we'll do all we can to ensure that all your questions and needs are met on your first visit. If you'd like to get in touch with the club prior to visiting, please feel free to contact any of the committee members whose details are provided on our Contacts Page and who will be more than willing to help out.


However, you should feel more than free to visit the club without prior contact if you wish. There are club sessions for members of all playing standards so everyone is welcome to visit Westfields without worry. If you're an adult we recommend first coming along to one of the mixed gender social sessions (Saturday from 2pm or Monday from 6pm) where members will be able show you around and answer your questions. Of course, if you'd prefer to come to a single sex session (Men's from 10am on Sunday) you'd be more than welcome.

If you're interested in junior membership we recommend coming to the session from 10am on Saturday morning. Here you'll be able to meet the other players, our club coach, and the other members and volunteers who oversee our junior sessions. If Saturday morning is an inappropriate time, further sessions are run from 4-5.30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Quotes from our membership



Westfield's strength is in it's club sessions, where a rotation system is used to mix everyone around, so you should hopefully get to play tennis with everyone there. Our small size means that you get to know most members quite quickly, so there is a very friendly atmosphere and new members are made most welcome. Our Junior sessions are becoming very popular, whether taking part in coaching sessions or just playing tennis.

Will Knott reviewed Westfields Tennis Club...

Westfields is a great tennis Club. A real gem so close to the centre of Leicester. The 4 courts are all in really good condition and as there are two savanna and two hard it means you have a choice of surfaces to play on. Very useful when practicing for the away League tennis games! Would thoroughly recommend coming down and having a hit!

It's a great club, and I would recommend.



The setting of the club in an amphitheatre of tall trees makes it a lovely place to visit.



A good club with a good open door policy and a nice choice of coaching courses.



The club is now very motivated and pro-active.
