Shiplake Tennis Club Teams

Mens’ Teams

Shiplake Tennis Club have two mens’ teams in the Berkshire Summer League, this means that the distances travelled to play a match are not as far as in the winter leagues, when they play in the Oxfordshire League.  The Mens Berks. 1 team  play in Division 5A and is captained by Tim Rose.  The Mens Berks,  2 Team is captained by Richard Ormerod, who also runs the mens team practice session on a Thursday evening.

Womens’ Teams

There are three ladies teams playing in the Oxfordshire Babolat Winter league 2020/21 at Shiplake. The A team, captained by Nikki Botterill and Clare Pelling, plays in Division 1. The B team (Janette Verrall and Karen Peters) and the C team (Amanda Andrews and Sheena Darke) both play in Division 4. Further details about this league can be found on the LTA website.

There are also two teams in the Berkshire league – the first team plays in Division 6 and the second in Division 8. Again, further details about opposing teams and the format of the competition are on the LTA website. Sharon Hearn captains the Berkshire first team and we’re looking for a captain for the Berkshire 2 team. Please do get in touch with Amanda if you’re interested!

Captains are always on the lookout for new players to add to their squads – if you’re interested in representing Shiplake and in playing competitive tennis against other clubs and are uncertain which team would be suitable for you please contact amandaandrews@waitrose.com who is the Match Secretary.
