The club started with just two rinks on some old grass tennis courts behind a house on Park Road, moving to its current site, on the Birstall Playing fields, in May 1957. We are very proud of the standard of our green and facilities, believing it to be one of the best in the County.

Our qualified coaching team will welcome you into the Club and provide you with 4 free coaching sessions to help you develop the necessary skills and knowledge, so that you master the basics of the game.
