Is this Australia? No, it’s Westbury Park


The Westbury Park Tennis Club (WPTC) is back in action, with new and revitalised facilities. After months of anticipation, and a substantial period of closure, the freshly resurfaced courts are now open once more for play. The vibrant Australian Open colours—reminiscent of the iconic blue courts Down Under—add a touch of antipodean excitement to the local tennis scene.

WPTC is committed to nurturing the next generation of tennis stars. Both courts have been thoughtfully marked up for orange ball play specifically for younger players. With modified equipment and court dimensions, kids can develop their skills while having a blast. The future of tennis is in good hands.

In addition to the colourful makeover, the club has taken safety seriously. A new defibrillator is now prominently located in the clubhouse. While it is hoped it never needs to be used, having this life-saving device on-site provides peace of mind for players and spectators alike.

The club prides itself on its welcoming and inclusive environment. Whether you’re a seasoned player or a complete beginner, there’s a spot for you there. Its fantastic coach, Dan (Avon Developmental Coach of the year 2023), is passionate about helping players at all levels, so anyone is welcome to join in for a friendly match or a coaching session!

So, if you haven’t picked up a racket in a while, or if you’ve always wanted to try tennis, now is the perfect time to do so – especially as new members get the first month free.

The club would be delighted for you to come along, meet fellow enthusiasts and celebrate the reopening of its courts. Matt Evans, WPTC Chair, said, “”Re-laying the courts is a huge investment, and we’re so pleased that it’s gone well. It will benefit the local tennis community for decades”.
