Tennis: Where and when

There is a thriving Tennis Club with members not only from Yetminster and Ryme Intrinseca but a few from other villages in the Wriggle Valley. Bookings are made online on this website.

There is a small club tournament as part of an Annual Sports Day in the village during the summer and an inter-villages competition, normally in the late summer/autumn.
