Bright Ideas for Tennis

Members enjoying Bright Ideas for Tennis Day

The club enjoyed a brilliant day on 11th June 2016 when BRIGHT IDEAS FOR TENNIS sent us two ex-Davis Cup players, Danny Sapsford and Luke Milligan. Danny and Luke ran five coaching sessions for juniors and adults of all standards. They then played an exhibition match partnering our coaches Aaron and Ariadne, followed by tie breaks with some of our best and youngest players. Speed guns allowed us to have a fastest serve competition. We had a very successful raffle and enjoyed pulled pork and salad sustenance. We raised over £865 for the club, which will go towards the practice fence. Many thanks to Danny and Luke for coming to our club, along with the members that organised the day and the great crowed that came along.

Junior Open Afternoon

Our thanks go to Martina and others who ran a very successful junior open afternoon on Sunday 26th July 2016 with free cakes and drinks. Another junior open session will take place in the autumn.

Tennis Wall

The practice fence is now up and running on court 3 to be enjoyed by all members.

Fund Raising

We are now registered with EASY FUND RAISING.

If you join this site using Byfield tennis as your favoured good cause, it will direct you to the website of many retailers (Trainline, eBay, Amazon, John Lewis etc.) to make your usual purchases but the club will get about 0.5% to 2% as a gift – paid for by the big retailers as part of their corporate responsibility. It doesn’t change the prices the big retailers charge but it does help the club.

We are also registered for Gift Aid with Local Giving. One of the reasons our subs have not increased is that we want to invite members to contribute £5 or £10 to us when the Local Giving match fund is operating, usually in October. Details will be sent to you by email.


Byfield, located between Daventry and Banbury, has had an active tennis club since 1948 welcoming members from local villages including Culworth, Eydon, Badby, Charwelton, Woodford, the Boddingtons, Aston Le Walls etc.

The tennis club is located on the Brightwell Playing Field (East side of A361), behind the Village Hall and adjacent to the Bowls Club. Please click the map above for directions via Google Maps.
