From the OULTC website:

In partnership with the University Development Office, we are excited to announce a new campaign in support of the OULTC Tennis Clubhouse.

We are currently seeking to redevelop our clubhouse that has stood on the Iffley Sports Grounds since the 1980s (!). This project will allow us to utilise significantly more of the current footprint that the building provides and to make it a more modern, hospitable space for club members and visitors to socialise before and after matches/training sessions. To achieve this, we need to:

  • Redevelop the heating system of the clubhouse, including double glazing all windows and adding more insulation to the loft area
  • Add bi-fold doors opening onto a new outdoor decking area
  • Create a new side entrance to the clubhouse to maintain tidiness
  • Replace the existing unused changing rooms, showers and toilets with redesigned unisex changing cubicle and new toilets
  • Install a new kitchen and table for dining and club meetings
  • Create a lounge area, including Wi-Fi and TV/presentation screen
  • Allow for additional hosting space for larger events, doubling as a games area with foldable table tennis table.

If you would like to get involved, we’d love to have your support. You can make a gift via the University’s online giving pages, or if you would like to talk to someone about a significant investment in the club, please contact the University of Oxford Development Office at sport@devoff.ox.ac.uk. Donors in the US can give tax effectively via the North American website. Please add the club’s name to the comment box on that site.
