CHAIR’S FOREWORD
Quarry Bank Tennis club is over 100 years old and has been at its present location since 1932. We are a small club but have always punched above our weight when competing with bigger clubs in the region.
As a new member I can guarantee you a warm welcome and that you will have access to social tennis, club competitions and inter club league matches. A full range of coaching activities are also available.
We are a family-oriented club, I have been a member for over 50 years and other members of my family for many years a well. The club has provided us with many wonderful memories, not just on the tennis playing side but from a social angle as well. Friendships have been made which have lasted for decades.
I really look forward to meeting you and hope that you enjoy many years of membership of Quarry Bank Tennis Club.

TOURNAMENTS
Singles and doubles tournaments run throughout the year, ranging from one day events (3 per year) to fortnight long events (3 per year) to the two long singles league events in the summer and winter, whereby you’ll typically one match every 10-20 days with the top eight people qualifying for the knockout stages.

These longer tournaments are especially popular, with standard ranging from people that joined as beginners all the way through to A team players. These are handicapped to increase the competitiveness of matches (e.g. The best players normally start every game on -30, with first time juniors starting on +15 or +30). These two tournaments run in summer (April-September) and winter (November-March).

TEAMS
QBTC has had representation in the Staffordshire league for decades. The men have three teams and the ladies have one that play doubles matches against other teams in the area.

The C team is just starting out in 2018, so they are in Division 7 South, while A and B play in Divisions 2 South and 3 South respectively. The ladies team were reintroduced to the league in 2017 and play in Division 4 South.

There is also a mixed Herefordshire and Worcestershire League team that play in the summer in Division 5 East and won Division 8 East last winter. In 2017, a men’s team took part in the Herefordshire and Worcestershire winter league for the first time and won Division 12 East.

So, whether or not you have played team tennis before, there is plenty of scope to represent the club at various different levels.
