A view of Bamford Tennis Club

Welcome

There can't be many prettier places to play tennis. Whether you want to play competitive matches or just want to play tennis you are very welcome.
We are always keen to see new members. You can use the "Contact" link to get in touch and find out more.

Location

The club is situated off Water Lane just south of the village of Bamford, Hope Valley. Water Lane is on the left of the A6013 that runs from Sickleholme Service Station to Bamford village. It's a small lane with Network 3D premises at the corner.   See map for details.

Status

The club is a not-for-profit organisation run by volunteers. We are affiliated to the LTA.

Courts

We have 4 hard courts, one of which has floodlights. Courts are available at (almost) all times to members and their guests without needing to book. If there's a court free you can play. We do not hire out courts to non-members - mainly because of insurance constraints and because we have no easy way to collect hire fees. Depending on circumstances we may arrange short-term membership for people visiting the area e.g. on holiday.

Three of our four courts were resurfaced to a high standard in 2012. The £30,000 to fund this was raised from members' subscriptions and from local donations.

Clubhouse

Our old wooden clubhouse is full of character! It provides the basic facilities necessary to support tennis. The clubhouse is kept locked but members can order keys if they wish.

Sheffield & District League Tennis

We enter teams in the Sheffield & District Leagues. You can read more on the "Teams" page.

Our club logo was created by member and graphic designer
Andy Illingworth. It cleverly combines a tennis ball, rolling hillsides and a millstone!
