This is only possible due to the magnificent all year round coaching program run by Emma Silcock and her coaching team. The club are incredibly proud of the achievements of the Juniors and the successful program at the club that has helped bolster their membership from 64 in 2016 to 154 in 2019, over 50% being Juniors!

Not bad for a three court club with limited facilities and finances.

At their core is being a friendly and supportive local facility, providing access to tennis for all, with a large spoonful of fun! For more information about High Legh tennis club, please contact Matt Bannon.
