About the club

facilities and History

Facilities

 

Marshfield has 4 floodlit macaddam courts with one court marked with Mini Red courts for junior coaching.  There is an oak framed clubhouse with a small kitchen area, toilets and changing facilities, and a BBQ for external use in the Summer.  We have an Ice Cream freezer that is seasonally loaded with mini tubs of Marshfield Ice cream for sale via an honesty box for £1.20 a tub.

The courts are accessed via the Car Park at the entrance to Withymead Playing Fields. 

Club History

The Club was founded in 2011 after a committee of volunteers was able to secure LTA funding for court construction.  The courts were built from scratch on scrubland towards the back of the Playing Field area.  The Clubhouse was added in January 2013 following fundraising, a donation and an LTA loan.  The Club has around 300 members - around half of whom are adults and half juniors. 

Club Management

The Club is managed by a Committee of 12 volunteers.  We welcome new committee members so if you would like to become involved in helping at the club contact our Co-Chair Karen Wigley - karen@wigleyline.co.uk
