Tennis in Kirkby

There are two tennis courts at the MUGA (multi use games area) at the Community Centre . These are free to use by all residents and visitors to the caravan park. We normally operate a booking system. Sheets are kept in a box adjacent to the courts, but you can often play if you turn up. Please fill in the sheet if you play, it helps us to demonstrate usage to our funders.

A small group of people play in the Duddon League against teams from other clubs in the area. We are always looking for people to join in, they usually play on Tuesday evenings from 6.30pm from May to July. 

Tennis coaching is organised for primary aged children in the summer holidays. Details are posted in the Kirkby Caller and booking forms can be collected from Burlington School or Moorland Stores.

For further information please contact Fran Treloar on 07957 183985.
