Proud Sponsors of Shotley & Benfieldside Tennis Club 

We are delighted to have renewed our sponsorship of Shotley & Benfieldside Tennis Club for the next season.  

Located in the heart of Derwent Valley community, the award-winning tennis club has activities open to all. Offering the only indoor tennis court in County Durham, the club offers a total of six courts, along with member access to outdoor facilities at all times, accompanied by a well-appointed clubhouse.

One of the club's standout features is its year-round coaching program, now garnering national recognition. Juniors are increasingly earning spots not only in the Durham & Cleveland County Coaching Programme but also in the LTA Regional and National Pathway programs, signifying the club's commitment to nurturing top-tier talent in the region. The club is also home to Tennis is Served, an independent coaching programme run by the head coach David Esther.  


Representative of Shotley & Benfieldside Tennis Club, Tony Pensom said: “We are delighted to have had Harrington Brown as our main club sponsor since the business was transformed on its acquisition by Jennifer Hartburn. Harrington Brown has become the leading estate agent in the area through the quality of service they deliver, their attention to detail and a professional but caring approach.”

“These are values we share at the club, where we offer a comprehensive coaching programme for all ages and abilities, with many juniors ranked in the top 100 nationally and many more playing county-level tennis, a friendly welcoming environment and great value membership deals providing unrestricted access to the club’s fully refurbished facilities.” 

Our managing director Jennifer Hartburn added: “It is fantastic to be able to support our local club and help them continue to provide premium facilities and coaching services to the entire community, plus a range of social events throughout the year including the summer bbq and regular quiz nights. We are very proud to be the main club sponsor for such an incredible venue.”
