The Ackworth Tennis Club started mid July 2012 supported by grants from the WMDC Community Chest and Ackworth Parish Council.

The Club meets on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6:00pm – 9:00pm, Thursdays 5:30pm – 9:00pm, Saturdays 12:30pm – 6:00pm and Sundays 10:00am – 6:00pm on the excellent courts kindly hired from Ackworth School situated on Pontefract Road in an excellent environment. All ages and abilities are welcomed. Coaching can be arranged.

Part of the concept of the club is based on assisting members to enjoy playing in a social environment and to this end we are introducing, as from now, regular Social Meetings every Thursday starting at 5:30, so that players will have a chance to meet and interact with new people.

The Club is registered with the UK Lawn Tennis Association under which it is covered for Public Liability on the courts. Committee members are C.R.B. registered.
