Pirbright Tennis Club

Pirbright Tennis Club History

 
 
 

Pirbright Tennis Club was founded back in 1976, and initially existed on one private court only, in Burrow Hill. Soon after, it moved to it's existing location in School Lane.

This site was leased from the SCC for many years until, a few years ago, the club purchased the freehold of the whole of the Sandpits. The peripheral areas, such as the car park, the access roads, an area in front of the Sandpit Cottages,and a small 'ransom' strip alonside School Lane were sold to the local parish council, in order to protect the area, as much as possible, from future unwelcome development.

The club is now thriving, with 382 members and 5 adult teams. There is an active junior coaching programme run in collaboration with the two other local clubs, Normandy and Worplesdon.
