Upper Broughton Tennis Club (UBYSC)

Winter Tennis… it's nothing like Monkey Tennis.

The Upper Broughton Tennis Club or UBYSC (Upper Broughton Youth & Social Club) has been in constant use since the early 1950's. Now in the 2020's the playing surface, lighting, club house and organisation have kept pace with modern expectations.

Any day of the week, any time of the year and now well into the evenings with the assistance of flood lighting there is seemingly always a game being played. A coaching session being run, singles, doubles, tournaments, desperate lobs being hoist, grudge matches to be settled, serves that were definitely IN, calls that were so clearly OUT.

The club is a great facility to have in such a small community and should be supported by all of us.
