We are a family-friendly club in the north Shropshire village of Baschurch, around 8 miles north west of Shrewsbury, and currently have approximately 130 members. We are open to players of all ages and abilities, and welcome enquiries from prospective new members.
Based at Church Lane in Baschurch, we have two floodlit hard-surfaced courts, plus a clubhouse. The surrounding area has been designed to facilitate wheelchair access. For the competitive player, we enter Men's and Ladies' teams in the Shropshire Inter-Club Doubles Summer League, and also have three mixed teams that take part in the Winter league. There is no obligation however to play matches, and many members are happy to play their tennis at a social level with friends and family.
We are fortunate to benefit from the services of a club coach (Sarah Hardie assisted by Ollie Beaman and Camilla Loney), and offer tennis lessons to those aged 3 and over. For the children, our aim is to provide a fun and safe environment in which they can learn skills and tactics and develop a real love of the game before eventually progressing to tennis "proper".
In addition to the playing side, members can apply for Wimbledon tickets through the club, and we also run occasional social events that are always well supported.
Membership fees for 2014-15 are as follows: Family - £150, Adult - £80, Junior (under 18 or in full time education) - £45. Adult members may also purchase a key for the club house for £6.
Baschurch was among the first clubs in Shropshire to obtain the LTA Clubmark registration - for details please click on the Clubmark logo above.

We're looking to book upcoming local band The Hot Jazz Biscuits (left) to play at the Corbet School from 19:00 on Saturday 18th October. Keep the date free in your diary! Described as playing a repertoire ranging from jazz and swing, through motown, all the way to disco and pop, this promises to be a night to remember. Details / tickets available nearer the time from committee members. For a preview video, take a look at their website at: http://www.thehotjazzbiscuits.com/video-2.html
