Great British Tennis Weekend

Sunday 17th July sees the return of the Great British Tennis Weekend events at the Mersey Bowmen, so we hope you’ll be coming down to join in?!

Bring your friends, acquaintances and any physios you happen to work with – they always seem to be good at tennis – for a day of:
• 10am-12pm: Tennis For Free (officially the busiest in the country now!)
• 12pm-2pm: Free social play for all-comers: young, old; handy or beginners; this is a chance to hop on court and try out some doubles, get a sense of the club and join in the fun
• 2pm-5pm: Social tennis for all. Not a member? Pay and play for a visitor’s fee of just £2.50 and see if you like it…
• A big fat 20% discount for anyone who joins our club on the day


It’s designed to give people a taste of tennis in the park – either with coaching at Tennis For Free, or social play after. So if you know anyone who’s ever cast a longing glance when you’ve mentioned the Bow, ask them along…

2016 Membership costs are:
Full adult membership: £130 JOIN for £104 on the day!
Concessions (unwaged, students, under 21s and country members): £65 JOIN for £52 on the day!
Juniors (under 19s – free if parent joins): £35 JOIN for £28 on the day!
Winter membership (1st September to April): £65
New adult members (not an MB member in the past five years): £100 JOIN for £80 on the day!


As ever, all volunteers, greeters and cake makers are welcomed. We need people to come down at 12 to play with and chat to potential new members, and generally show off the Bow experience. We’ve got all sorts of Great British Tennis booty on the way, so if you fancy joining in and nabbing a t-shirt or wristband, please email Danny for direction… 

* While the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club might not agree, Mersey Bowmen’s Tennis For Free is now the best-attended programme in the country. Resounding proof indeed…
