Coaching Team

I’m pleased to announce we have another strong addition to our coaching team. Kitty McWhirter started coaching at Roehampton Club last week. Kitty is an all-round sportswoman but excelled on the tennis court and hockey pitch. She represented the England U21 hockey team and was also ranked in the top 25 tennis players U18. At Durham University Kitty completed an unbeaten season in singles and doubles going on to win the BUCS gold medal with her team. Since leaving university Kitty has completed her Level 1, 2 and 3 LTA tennis qualifications and has worked with some top junior players as well as adults. Kitty is fun, approachable and professional.

Autumn term

The autumn term is now underway. The remaining grass courts in play will close from Monday 20th September. The seasonal airhall over courts 12 to 14 is due to go up in October. This year we have a new airhall with improved internal chandelier lighting that will greatly improve the visibility through the winter months. Due to this there are some ground works that need to be done to support the new structure. Therefore, from 11th October through to the 19th October courts 12-14 will be closed.  We plan to have the airhall open for play from the 20th October if all goes to plan.

National Club League Finals

Last weekend Roehampton Club’s Men’s and Ladies First Teams travelled to West Hants Tennis Club in Bournemouth for the National Club League Finals. Both teams made it through to the semi-finals where they were eventually beaten after two hard-fought matches but all the players put up some strong opposition and will be back next year to hopefully win the titles.
