Work is progressing rapidly on building a new clubhouse at Corbridge Tennis Club.

The club, based in the grounds of Tynedale Rugby Club, expects the structure to be in place by the end of this month.

Much of last season was written off by Covid so the club used the time to raise the funds to build the clubhouse and negotiate the necessary changes to the ground lease with their landlord Tynedale Rugby Club.

Tynedale Park has become a major multi-sport hub in the Tyne Valley as home to Corbridge Tennis Club, Tynedale Rugby Club and Corbridge United Football Clubs sitting alongside Corbridge Cricket Club and Corbridge Quoits Club on the adjacent site.

Coun. Nick Oliver visited the site last week to see progress and commented: “My wife Katie was instrumental in founding Corbridge Tennis Club and so it’s wonderful to see it progressing and to be able to provide some financial support from my councillor’s allowance.

“It’s a vibrant club and everybody is looking forward to seeing the lockdown restrictions lifted and getting out on the court again.”

Club chairman Nick Steenberg added “We thank Nick for his support and we’re really looking to play starting on March 29.

The club is always open to new members and full details can be found at
