This summer, top-class professional tennis returns to Yorkshire and we would love you to be a part of it! Between Saturday 11th and Sunday 19th June men and women ranked as high as 50 in the world will arrive in Ilkley to compete in the $50,000 Aegon Ilkley Trophy.
As part of our commitment to bringing tennis to the community we are giving schools the chance to bring one or two classes to the club during this fantastic tournament! Last year, which was our first, we had a wonderful week hosting over 1000 pupils from across the region. We are asking for primary schools to send children from years 3-6 and secondary schools year 7.
Each child will enjoy a fun, action-packed tennis session (40 minutes) provided by our highly qualified team before settling down to see the stars in action!
To take advantage of this fantastic opportunity and to book your place please get in touch as soon as possible as we have a lot of interest in this great event (this has been emailed out by James Cleary SGO and the invite is also in the primary school entry form section on this site). Please by aware that spaces will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
If you have any questions, or would like some more information on the tournament, please don't hesitate to contact Robbie Burnett.
