Social Activities 2023

Thanks to everyone who supported our tennis & cake social on Saturday.  We all had a fun morning and raised £76 for the Community Outreach Fund.  Sorry we forgot to take any photos - next time!  It was clearly a popular event so we're holding another tennis & cake social on Saturday 18 March.


Meantime here are some photos from our post-Christmas meal at the Ship Inn which was hugely successful and enjoyed by all those who attended.

LTA Open Day Roadshow - Sunday 1st May 2022



Phil Leighton, an LTA Level 5 Coach, visited 12 local schools to promote tennis to 4 to 8 year olds.  Glan Aber and Chester Tennis Clubs worked together to liaise with schools and run Open Day Roadshows at their respective clubs over the weekend with both clubs offering on-going promotional tennis courses.

The Open Days were a big success.  Our three hour-long Sunday sessions, run by Phil Leighton in conjunction with Aidan and our coaching team, saw 200+ children experience fun on-court activities.  We were delighted to sign up over 50 new players.  The promotional courses included 6 weekly tennis lessons plus a racquet.


Thank you  to everyone who supported the Open Day.

Fast 4s Finals Day

Thanks to Aidan for organising a great Finals Day - and to all the participants.  A sunny, bright day although rather cold!

Hedge Maintenance

Friends of Westminster Park volunteers have been cutting back the hedge alongside the tennis courts.  Some sections need infilling to enable laying which will help manage the height and strengthen the structure.  This will benefit the courts if leaves are below the fence line and allow us to maintain a gap along our boundary.  A work in progress!

Look at our mini court!

Mini court has been repainted - all ready for play with  new net installed too.

Cheshire LTA Awards Evening & Chester & District AGM


Delighted that Ashley Rogers was presented with the Tennis for Life Award for his contribution to Glan Aber over many years.  Not only was Ash the Club Treasurer for 20 years, he was involved with the relocation of the club to its site in Westminster Park.  Whilst no longer on the Committee, Ash is now a Trustee of the Club and we value his wealth of background knowledge.



Congratulations to our Men's A team who won division 1 again in the summer.  Well done - Ian Britton (Captain) and Richard Evans represented the Club and collected our trophy.
