Skipton Tennis Centre has been awarded Yorkshire, North of England and National Club of the Year 2017-18

Skipton Tennis Centre has been awarded Yorkshire, North of England and National Club of the Year 2017-18. The club is situated in the market town of Skipton, surrounded by the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales. Founded in 2008, the club now has 5 hard courts, 3 of which are floodlit, a Padel court (floodlit) a club pro shop, changing facilities, and refreshment bar.

Ten years ago the tennis club was all but derelict with unplayable courts, and had been for several years. Head Coach, Adam Cox, was frustrated at always having to travel out of town to play tennis. He took the radical step of launching a plan to  redevelop the facility into what it is today.
