Free tennis and squash open day – Sunday 8th July 10am to 1pm

All standards and ages are welcome to our free summer open day. It’s on Sunday 8th July from 10am to 1pm.

There’ll be a full program of events in tennis, squash and racketball. Even if you’ve never played before just come along with your trainers and we’ll provide the rackets and balls.

Our coaches will guide you to improve your game.

It’s completely free fun for all the family. There’s even a free bouncy castle for the young ones.

The bar will be open so if the exercise gives you a thirst you can enjoy a drink on the balcony.

The club is in Sandford Road less than half a mile from Bromley South Station. The postcode is BR2 9AN.

The club has 12 outdoor tennis courts, 2 indoors, and 3 squash courts. There’s also free wifi, BT Sport, pool and table tennis.

Sunday 8th July is the middle Sunday of Wimbledon so the weather’s bound to be glorious. However, if it’s raining we’ll be on the indoor courts.

If you do want to join there’s a discount on the day. New members are eligible for free coaching sessions.

To get more information on the open day or about the club, call Helen and Sue in the club office on 020 8460 0936 or email office@bromleyltsc.co.uk

BLTSC’s girls party!

BLTSC threw a free party for its young female players in September. We have more girls enjoying tennis at Sandford Road than for some time so what better way to celebrate this but with some mayhem, lots of balloons, plenty of cake and too many lollypops!

Well done to Sam Tyler and his team of Tennis Assistants for keeping the proceedings under control… Just!

The bar is open!

The finishing touches have been completed so our newly refurbished bar is now well and truly open!

We’re planning a Club social function in November: keep your eyes and ears peeled for news…!

So after your game why not come upstairs, have a drink and a look around?

Discussions will begin shortly about soft furnishings, time to say goodbye to that carpet!

In case you forget- here is our old bar…..!

Exciting New Rebo Wall

BLTSC are delighted to have the first REBO Wimbledon practice wall in Kent!

Installed in 2016 our REBO Wimbledon wall is located in its own ‘REBO zone’. The area is screened off and located in the middle of our 5 clay courts.

The hitting face is at a nine degree angle, this provides a ball arc that is realistic and will help you to practice like the Pro’s!

Warm up before you play, recover from injury, work on your non-dominant hand- or just try and beat the wall!

Useful tip- start close to the wall with with low compression balls, increase your distance and work up to a full ball.

Quick reminder for members, that courts 11& 12 are out of action for the next two days as trees are being cut back ahead of our resurfacing work in August

Many thanks

REBO Wall

Our REBO wall was installed in 2016 and offers players of all standards a great way to practice.

Its unique angled face means that the ball response from the wall better replicates the 'arc' of playing partner.

BLTSC’s REBO wall has its own enclosed space- our REBO ZONE. Located centrally by our clay courts this new addition to our facilities is proving popular.

From the most experienced player to the complete beginner practicing on a wall means working on the things you want to- at a pace that suits you.
The angled face of the REBO means the ball trajectory replicates that of a hitting partner, unlike traditional flat walls.

In a tennis match you expect to hit about 150 balls per hour… with a ball machine approximately 500 balls per hour…. but against a REBO wall you can hit over 2000 balls per hour using only ONE ball.

Roger Federer hit against wall for countless hours when learning to play. (Federer 1996 – YouTube Video) He acknowledges the wall’s part in helping him become the legend he is today. Federer, Djokovic, Sampras and McEnroe all grew up playing against a wall.
Try it for yourself….  No partner. No problem!

Well played to the class of 2017!

BLTSC’s annual open tournament finals day was a hard fought one, with lots of matches going the distance and only a brief rain interruption. The scones were in good supply and the BBQ was kept busy all afternoon and evening. Well played everyone, thanks to the supporters also and lastly many thanks to everyone who helped make it happen.

So many people make this the centre piece of our tennis calendar- thank you all!
