The club is actively pursuing the further development of a modern tennis centre for Harrogate. The venture is in conjunction with a local school, Harrogate High School, and is supported by Sport England, the LTA and the Table Tennis England.
The overarching ambition is to provide a resource that:
- provides facilities for year round play and to avoid inclement weather
- creates a long term sustainable future through income generation
- has sufficient critical mass to facilitate a professional service to all users of the centre
- creates the environment for all levels of coaching and the consequent development of the sports to achieve “Performance Centre” status
The project has been approached in two phases and having completed the phase 1 relocation progress is now under way for Phase 2 of the project to complete the indoor facilities and an modern clubhouse with an extensive range of facilities. The project’s implementation will rely on raising funds on behalf of the centre itself which will be complemented by funds from the main sports governing bodies. There is an overarching Vision and significant ambition for the new centre.
