Your chance to play Sir Richard in his own back yard

Virgin Active Necker Cup Main

Your place in the 2014 Ice Swan Necker Cup it is waiting.

This November, you could be facing Sir Richard and tennis superstars such as Bjorn Borg, Boris Becker and Marion Bartoli across a net on Necker Island in the Caribbean. We’re holding an in-club tournament to find two players to enjoy a trip (and a game) of a lifetime.

We’re also supporting our junior tennis aces, by choosing a girl aged 14 and under to represent the UK in the Ice Swan Junior Necker Cup, pitting the best UK girl against the best boy tennis player from the US.

Virgin Active launches Active Aces

We've launched a national search for the next generation of tennis superstars with our Active Aces coaching programme for 3-10 year olds.

And to celebrate the launch, we're holding a national talent search open to children aged between 5 and 8 to find the tennis aces of the future with a unique prize that includes three years of expert coaching and a three-family membership.

Pool and spa closures

We're refurbishing our saunas from 8.30pm on Tuesday 1st April to Saturday 5th April - as a result, both the male and female saunas will be closed during this time. However, it'll be worth the wait once the work is complete.

In addition, we've been given the honour of hosting an inter-club swimming gala on Sunday 6th April with members from all over the region visiting to do battle in the water. Unfortunately, while the gala is taking place between 11.30am and 5pm, our indoor pool, spa and steam room will be out of action.
