Kent Dyno T20 Champions!

Huge congratulations to the Club’s T20 XI who last week won the much delayed Kent Dyno T20 Cup final at the Spitfire Ground, Canterbury. Bowling out Littlebourne for 143, the Club XI took 18.3 overs to chase down their opponents score.

It was also great to see so many people following the action with our live score updates on the club app. Remember that this is also available for every weekend and junior game throughout the season.

Hotshotz tennis have now announced the details of this years summer camps and they are set to have a busy summer! They will be hosting three weekly camps (24th-28th July, 7th-11th Aug, 28th Aug - 1st Sep) with each camp running from 9am to 1pm and will be suitable for all ages. Make sure to book your place in advance to avoid disapointment. For more information call our head coach Jack on 07946 795 277 or visit our website

Win some Fizz and Wimbledon tickets

Most of you will know that the Club is affiliated to the LTA. But did you know that, as a Club member, you are entitled to FREE British Tennis Membership?

So what’s in it for you? Well there’s direct entry in to the ballot for Wimbledon tickets. And regular news and updates on tennis, events and offers.

What’s in it for the Club? Well, the more British Tennis Members we have, the more likely we are to attract LTA funding for improved club facilities. That is critical for our long-term strategy of growing tennis membership and activity.

To encourage you to take up British Tennis Membership, we will include all members signed up by President’s Day on July 2 in a draw with prizes of a bottle of Hush Heath’s prize-winning Balfour Brut Rose and two FREE ‘Pay & Play’ adult sessions with HotShotZ Tennis.

Simply go to the LTA members’ website here. Sign up for FREE Lite Adult or Junior membership (or upgrade to Team if you prefer). You need to supply a few personal details and ensure you add Staplehurst C&TC as your tennis venue!

Building our Future

We are expecting our planning application to be considered by Maidstone Borough Council’s planning committee meeting on July 7. We should hear from the Council’s planning officers if they are going to recommend approval shortly before that date. We will keep you updated on progress.
