Roundhill Tennis Club


Alison Ison

Hi, I’m Alison and I have been a member of the club for over 40 years. My life outside of my work life revolves around tennis, playing myself and encouraging others to take up and develop their own skills. I have played tennis at County level from Junior to veteran.. if you are not a member and you are interested in playing tennis, then you are looking at the website of the most friendly club in Leicestershire. Why not contact us and take a look for yourself!

Jaswinder Sian

Away from my day job in the NHS, tennis gives me the opportunity to release my physical energy, whizzing around the court and generally distracting the opposition and occasionally playing a decent shot!

Having been a members for a few years now, I have played for the Club teams as well as being able to captain the men’s team in the past.

I am incredibly proud to be part of the Roundhill Management Committee which is the least I could do in response to the many years of pleasure the Club has given to me, my wife and my two daughters.

Mike Clayton
Vice Chair

I’ve been a player, team member and coach at Roundhill for a good number of years coaching both juniors and adults. I’m a long serving member of the management committee and hold the position of vice chairman. I am also grounds and facilities officer

Howard Thornhill

I’ve been a member at Roundhill for more years than I care to remember, and served on the Management Committee for many years filling a variety of roles, currently as treasurer.

The club has become like a second home and a second family. It’s true what they say – the more you put in, the more you get out.

But you don’t have to – you can just enjoy hitting a ball, fresh air and exercise on good courts, in pleasant surroundings and a sociable and friendly atmosphere.

Elaine Hillcoat
Grounds Manager

My aim is to maintain and improve the grounds around the courts for the enjoyment of everyone who comes to play at the club, together with the help and assistance of family and other experienced members.
I joined Roundhill TC in 2008 after the closure of my 'old' Club, Hillside.

As House Manager I enjoy helping to keep our much-admired Clubhouse looking smart comfortable and accessible to all members I have supported social activities and have helped to organise many as a member of the Social Committee. Since then I have regularly represented the Ladies' 2nd & 3rd teams. I have been a member of Roundhill since 1971.

Tennis has been a big part of my life, since the amalgamation of my old club Hillside over 13 years ago now I've enjoyed being part of a very friendly and accommodating club,a club that acknowledges all standards of play, I've made many friends here & have been part of an active committee as men's rep for the last few years, looking forward to another Tennis season throughout these difficult times.

I began playing tennis at Roundhill Tennis Club as a beginner, many years ago. I play socially, in league matches, interclub tournaments and I enjoy the adult coaching sessions.

My involvement in the club has grown over the years and I am now part of the Junior Team, supporting our coaches, junior social events and administration. I am also the club's Welfare Officer. My role is to support all members to be able to play and socialise at a safe, happy and inclusive tennis club.
