Opening Highlights

By Sam Dudgeon - General Manager

At 6 am Monday, March 20th 2017, Avenue Tennis Gillingham opened its doors to the public for the very first time. Although touring prospective members had been happening since January 9th, this was the first time our new members could use the Tennis CourtsGymClass StudiosHealth Suite or bar and restaurant.

The project was seven years in planning and 15 months of construction, and precisely what Medway needed. Personally, I began my Avenue Tennis journey in May 2016 and the ten months through to opening; I had seen the site develop drastically.

We knew that the Avenue Tennis was causing quite a stir by the feedback and our social media engagement. However, when we first opened our doors for touring in January, the number of people we toured and the excellent feedback we received was overwhelming.

It has been exciting to see the wide demographic range of members we have appealed to across all our membership categories. We now have many junior members (5-12 years of age) which is fantastic as this was the main reason Avenue Tennis was built; 'to encourage participation and performance in juniors'.

Overall the first few months since we have opened have flown by. We have many successes to highlight from our popular Kids Holiday Tennis Camps to seeing our gym members enjoy the fantastic Group Cycle Studio

A significant moment for us was our restaurant opening, which is open to members and non-members, adding another dimension to an already diverse club.
