Wrea Green Tennis Club is a private club, situated in Mill Lane and is open to tennis players from both the village and beyond; it currently has approximately 150 members. The club was founded in 1956 on a piece of land donated by the Birley family who at that time lived at The Villa, Wrea Green. Originally consisting of one hard tennis court and a pavilion-style clubhouse, the club has gone from strength to strength over the years and now is lucky enough to have three all-weather tennis courts and a pavilion, opened in 1999, which was built with the help of money from the National Lottery.
The Club, which is affiliated to the Lawn Tennis Association, enters teams in the local Fylde League (2 men’s team and 3 ladies’ teams) and also two mixed teams in the Ribble Tennis League. Adult social tennis is played on Sunday and Wednesday mornings and, during the summer, on Monday nights.
“Adult coaching sessions are available for a small charge at the club. Ladies coaching on Saturdays 9-10am, Men’s coaching Tuesday evenings 6.30-7.30pm; mixed group coaching Tuesdays 10.00-11.30am.
There is a strong junior section with approximately 50 junior members within the club and we provide a 10-week course of coaching free of charge. We have 3 Junior Boys’ teams in the Fylde League, we also have junior social tennis sessions during the summer on Wednesday afternoons from 4-5.30pm.
