Club History

Stebbing Tennis Club 1914The history of this club is an interesting story that goes back to before the First World War when there was a thriving tennis club in the village.

In 1935 Dr. H De Vere Stackpool donated the club enough land for 3 tennis courts. However, at the outbreak of World War Two, the courts were dug up as part of the ‘Dig for Victory’ campaign in order to provide food for the village. After the war the land was absorbed by the Co-op Farm and lost to the village as a sports facility.

During 1980 David Howland, Honorary Patron and trustee, with the support of Sir Alan Haselhurst MP started trying to persuade the Co-op to transfer the piece of land so it could be used as a tennis club once again. This was achieved in 1990 and the courts re-opened in 1997.

In April 2005 Sir Alan returned to open the new club house. In October 2007 the flood lights were added and for the 2009 season the courts were resurfaced
