Carisbrooke Tennis Club is being used as the base for the county men’s team competing in the high-level National Premier League (NPL) this winter.
The Leicestershire team, which includes some current and former Carisbrooke players, has also attracted a sponsor for the 2017/18 NPL West Midlands Region season.
Hunters estate agency has kindly agreed to support the side as they take on some of the best tennis clubs in our region. The growing business has branches in Leicester Road, Narborough, and one just around the corner from Carisbrooke in Allandale Road, Stoneygate.

The NPL matches are being played in Carisbrooke’s brand-new indoor tennis Dome on Sunday afternoons (midday onwards) and supporters would be very much welcome to come along to cheer on the lads.
