Anyone for tennis websites?

Odiham Tennis Club in Hampshire (www.odihamtennisclub.org.uk) is a growing community of regular tennis players of all age groups and abilities. The club, which was reopened by Tim Henman after extensive renovation in 2008, has almost 200 members and with possible expansion of the club to include an extra court, the managing committee decided an upgrade of their existing web site was required – to help them communicate more effectively with existing members and promote the club to potential new members.

A key requirement was to provide the club with a site that they could maintain and update easily, without the need to go back to the website developer each time they wanted to add a new piece of information. The solution was to build a site in Drupal – a powerful content management framework – that allows for various user level access to specific parts of the site. For example, the ‘News’ section could be maintained by one club member whilst ‘Court Availability’ could be managed by another.

The Drupal system is flexible enough to allow for future expansion of the site to include extra ‘modules’ which add additional functions to the site.

The new club site includes a ‘Forum’ for members to exchange views and chat, an up to date ‘Diary Dates’ & ‘News’ section and various modules that allow members to register online for club championships, competitions etc. The result is a cost effective professional looking site that can adapt and evolve to changing requirements. A site that is always up to date, where content can be changed and added at the click of a mouse by anyone with user/password access to the content management administration section.
