Bridgwater Tennis Club recognised with Somerset LTA award

Bridgwater Tennis Club was delighted to accept the Somerset LTA ‘Connecting Communities Award’ presented by Andy Fay, SLTA Chair.


Club members together with members of our local community enjoyed a morning’s tennis followed by tea, coffee and delicious homemade cakes.

Here are just a few examples of how our club has reached out to our local community.

Our Rusty Racquets group welcomes asylum seekers staying in a local hotel and has secured funding from a local charity CHARISrefugees so they can participate in a tennis for beginners’ course.


We have supported the MacMillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning for several years, an event is planned for next month with a ‘Bake Off’ theme called the ‘Championship Tie Bake’, so look out for more on this!

A fund-raising event for the Children's Hospice South West, linking with the Bridgwater retail outlet, material was provided for a Wimbledon fortnight window display. Donations of used tennis balls were subsequently sold to local dog owners and raised funds for CHSW.


A BIG congratulations to everyone who has contributed towards this amazing collective achievement. Keep up the good work!
