Epperstone Sports and Leisure Club
The club aims to provide a sports and social environment which encourages both adult and junior sport participation with opportunities for coaching and competitive activities.
It is an LTA affiliated tennis club with two grass artificial tennis courts which convert easily into a large 5-a-side football pitch - ideal for training and matches.
The courts have a floodlighting system which enables sports activities 365 days a year.
Whatever your level,you are welcome... come along and join in.

Our President, Susan Hannington, opened the June meeting by giving a brief overview of the National WI AGM which she recently attended in Bournemouth. Both resolutions were passed, and the speaker, Maggie Philbin, was excellent. Susan noticed a growing number of young delegates from newly formed WIs sporting vibrant hair colour and tattoos – the image of the WI is certainly changing! We will hear her full report at a later date.
We welcomed 10 members from Burton Joyce WI who came to join us for a session of Walking Netball. Andrea Walker, who plays netball for Southwell, explained the rules, and began by taking us through some warm-up exercises. Walking netball is for everyone and you really don’t need to be super-fit to play. We formed 3 teams and had 2 games each with Andrea acting as referee. She had a tough job on her hands, having to deal with some flouting of the rules, barging and intimidation – who would have thought it?
Diane Frudd thanked Andrea for giving us some much needed fun and invigorating exercise to cheer us up on a day of non-stop torrential rain.
Our next meeting is on Tuesday 9 July at 7.30pm in the Village Hall. The speaker, Nancy Appleyard, will explain “What Everybody is Saying” (messages in body language).
Visitors are very welcome.
Monday afternoon from 2-4pm in the Village Hall.
Everyone is welcome, whatever your craft, just turn up . Bring your own handiwork to work on while you chat and enjoy a cup of tea and a biscuit.
The charge is £1.50 to cover the cost of the hall.
