WREA GREEN TENNIS CLUB is now in its 63rd year and remains a popular sporting venue within the village. Situated in Mill Lane, the Club is open to tennis players from both the village and beyond; it currently has approximately 200 members. The Club was founded in 1956 on a piece of land donated by the Birley family who at that time lived at The Villa, Wrea Green. Originally consisting of one hard tennis court and a pavilion-style clubhouse, the Club has gone from strength to strength over the years and now has three all-weather courts and a pavilion, opened in 1999, which was built with the help of money from the National Lottery. The Club is affiliated to the Lawn Tennis Association.
The Club enters teams in the local Fylde League (2 men’s teams and 3 ladies’ teams) and also two mixed teams in the Ribble Tennis League. Adult social tennis is played on Sunday and Wednesday mornings and, during the summer, on Monday and Friday evenings. Additional social tennis events are held throughout the summer. Adult coaching sessions are provided for a small charge, details on request.
There is a strong junior section within the club, with approximately 50 junior members. An 8-week course of coaching is available free of charge for our junior members on Saturday mornings starting on the 30th March. We have 2 Junior teams in the Fylde League, an under-14 and under-17 team; we also have junior social tennis sessions during the summer on Wednesday afternoons from 4-5.30pm.
