Welcome from the President, Mark Thompson
Heaton Tennis & Squash Club in Bradford is a private members club run by the members with full time professional staff for the benefit of the members. We are not owned by any person or company and hence any surpluses we achieve are redirected back into the facilities. Since the mid 1980’s we have invested close to a million pounds and we are the premier tennis & squash club in Bradford.
Our club has a great tradition of exciting sporting achievements with a fun and friendly social scene for all ages. We were established in 1927 and back then our illustrious club hosted such players as Bunny Austin, Fred Perry and A.J. Smith who not only played at Wimbledon, but took a set off Jan Borota using a borrowed racket!
Nowadays with its large membership, the Club provides a significant service and facility to the local community and provides excellent opportunities for anyone to enjoy tennis squash and racketball. Others may choose to work-out in the fully equipped gym, take part in the various classes on offer from pilates, yoga, free-style dancing or karate or just to relax and have a drink or a meal in the bar and restaurant area. Heaton is also a fantastic place for young people to develop their skills with an excellent coaching programme in tennis, squash and racketball.
