The start of the 2012 tennis season is nearly here and Sidford Tennis Club are keen to welcome players of all standards and abilities to the club.

For those wishing to play tennis at a competitive level the club will be running Ladies and Men’s teams in divisions 1 and 3 of the Exeter and District League respectively, and two Mixed teams in divisions 2 and 5 of the East Devon League.

Not only has the club three all weather hard courts in excellent condition but they can boast floodlights on two of the three courts giving the benefit of extending playing hours in the summer months and providing the opportunity for evening winter tennis.
