Village Hall Notice board & Railings

The new notice board and railings have been installed in front of the Village Hall in Upper Broughton following an accident last year. Even though the works took longer than expected the results are a great improvement and complete the repairs. The adjacent houses have also been restored following the accident in which a cattle truck lost control on the A606.

Upper Broughton Tennis Club (UBYSC)

Spring 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.

Upper Broughton

Upper Broughton is a small village situated on the Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire border in the East Midlands, UK. With a population of some 300 people it is a small, friendly community on the edge of the Vale of Belvoir. Occupying a hill-top position, the village has commanding views over wide open countryside as far as Belvoir Castle. On a clear day you can even see Lincoln Cathedral. Once a farming stronghold Upper Broughton is now mainly a commuter village. Well situated for Leicester, Nottingham, Melton Mowbray, Loughborough and surrounding areas. Original Bailey's Melton Mowbray Pork Pies were once made in the village.
