The courts themselves are surrounded by well maintained parkland.

 

We cater for all levels of players and encourage members to participate in mens, womens and mixed competitive doubles matches. Club day is on Sunday at 10.30am (Winter Season) but always check the APTC website first as it can move to 2pm if there is a morning match.

 

If you are considering joining the club please do not hesitate to contact membership@astonparktennis.co.uk. Further contact details are available on the left hand side of this page and a membership form can be downloaded on our membership page if you would like to join.

Men's 1 and Men's 2 close in on promotion

The Men's 1st and 2nd teams are close to securing promotion in the Aylesbury & District Winter 2018-2019 season. Both teams need a win in their last match to move up a division. Men's 1 could see promotion to Divison 3 and Men's 2 could move up to Divison 7. Should be a nail biting finish to the season for both teams!

 

Ladies 2 secure promotion

And not to be outdone the Ladies 2 team secured 6 back to back wins in 2019 to secure 2nd place in Division 6 and promotion to Division 5 next winter.

 

Monday Night is Men's Night!

6-9pm. Contact Tim to be added to the WhatsApp Group for this session.

 

League Winner Trophies Presented

Aston Park received two trophies at the annual Aylesbury & District Tennis League Presentation Dinner Dance held on Friday 12th April 2019. Mixed 1 were winners of the 2017/2018 Division 4 and Summer 2018 Division 4 trophies (see photos below). Congratulations to all the players involved in these teams.

 

 

 

FIRST MIXED TEAM PROVIDE THE SEASON HIGHLIGHTS FOR SUMMER 2018

 

Aston Park’s 1st mixed team have once again performed very strongly to end as summer season AVDL League 4 Champions and Runners-Up in the AVDL Intermediate Cup.  This means the team have now been AVDL 2017 Summer Division 5, 2017/18 Winter Division 4 and 2018 Summer 4 Division Champions in the past three seasons- a very impressive feat. Congratulations to the players regularly contributing over this time- Simon Sluszny, Tim Gill, Andrew Nurse, Michael Chase, Pamela Reid, Anne Green, Sarah Baker, Sue Hoey and Eileen Greenall.  And thanks to Graham Smith, Adrian Bowen and Nathan Glynn who have also played important parts in these successes.  Let’s hope this momentum carries on to Winter Division 3 when the team will encounter some very experienced teams and taste Division 3 Mixed for the first time in the club’s history.

 

 

 

 

We had one other set of Champions with the Men’s 1st team crowned champions of Bucks County Shield Division 9.  The team benefitted from the contributions of Men’s first team players Tim Gill, David Rolls, Graham Smith and Nathan Glynn. After drawing their first match at Widmer End, the team remained undefeated for the rest of the season.

 

Aston Park also had a very successful first season in the Bucks County Shield Medley coming second in Division 5 and losing only to Burnham X1 who fielded several players who play regularly in Men’s Division 1.  Players were very enthusiastic about the format for this competition which sees two mixed doubles matches in the first round then player join forces to play either a ladies or men’s doubles. David Rolls, who as team Captain entered the team for the first time this year, said he thinks the club could sustain a 2nd team in this competition next year- provided sufficient court time can be found!

 

Dealing with three serious injuries to players in our 1st Ladies and Men’s teams (including both the Men’s and Ladies Captain) was never going to be easy and despite some brave performances, both teams finished at the foot of Division 3 and will be contesting Division 4 next summer.

 

Our Ladies 2 and Men’s 2 teams have done very well to remain in Divisions 5 and 6 respectively.

 

The Bucks County Shield remains the Achilles’ heel for the Ladies 1st team and they finished second from bottom in Division 5 despite some very close encounters that didn’t quite go Aston Park’s way.  The Ladies 2nd team played very well and finished mid-table in Division 9.

 

It has not been an easy season and some players were forced to play extra matches to cover for injured colleagues. However, we should acknowledge that apart from one Ladies 1 match where we were forced to play with one pair, we managed to send out a team to all matches and those involved have been excellent ambassadors for our village club.  Thank you to all players, the hard -working Team Captains and to Paul Soundy for keeping on top of the match fixture list.

 

The club continues to go from strength to strength on the team side with an unprecedented ten adult teams being fielded in the AVDL and Bucks County Shield this summer.  It is clear our team pools are small, especially on the Ladies side, so if you are reading this and want to play some regular club matches in the local area do please get in touch.

 

Winter matches start Tuesday this week- when our 2nd and 3rd Mixed teams will take each other on in the first match of the season in AVDL Division 6.  We are ready- bring it on!

Netball on Thursdays

Starting on Thursday September 14th Wendover Netball Club will be using the court for their practice on Thursday Evening from 6.30-7.45. We hope this doesn’t prove too much of a distraction to the men’s mix-in!!! If there are matches on Thursday evening the netball practice will be cancelled.

 

Loosening the nets after play

Please could all the members ensure that they loosen the nets after playing. If this is not done they tighten after being wet and can severely damage the new courts. I am aware that the new summer members may not have been advised that this is necessary but believe me it is. I’ve seen the damage that can be caused by failing to take this simple precaution and it’s horrendous.

 

Back to netball!

If you would like to get back to netball contact Molly on 07545 033 986.
