A short six month journey to Clubmark accreditation
Princes Risborough Tennis Club demonstrate how accreditation and club improvement go hand-in-hand.
Over the last six months the club has enhanced the tennis programme on offer, especially for junior players, has reviewed the way the club is managed, and has created a clear plan of action to ensure its future development and sustainability.
Rob Ellis, LTA Tennis Development Manager for Bucks, presented the club with the award last month.
Mr Ellis commented: "It is a great credit to everyone involved at Princes Risborough Tennis Club that they have managed to achieve Clubmark status within just six months of starting the project. A huge amount of work has been put in, which is evident from what the club now offers its members, and I am pleased to present the club with their Clubmark award."
Stephen Biggs, committee member responsible for leading the club's application enthused: "We are very proud of everything we've achieved at the club in a short space of time. It just goes to show that you don't have to be a massive club to offer tennis players in our area a great place to play. We have coaching, competitive opportunities and social play for players of all ages and abilities, as well as plans to improve our facilities over the next few years."
