North Oxford Lawn Tennis Club

The North Oxford Lawn Tennis Club offers a range of facilities and events, including a varied programme of social tennis and tournaments. Their website had become outdated and they were looking for a major redesign that would better serve their needs.

the brief

The tennis club’s existing website was difficult to maintain and update. The site had become disorganised with image files and old pages. The structure of the website made it hard to navigate, confusing visitors and making it difficult for them to find useful and relevant content.  The only part of the site that was really working for the club was the payment and court booking functionality, which they wanted to keep.

“We found working with Alberon a great experience. They understood our needs and nothing was too much trouble. They provided excellent advice and training on updating and maintaining the site and how to keep it fresh. Our website is now much easier to manage and we've had many comments on how much easier it is to navigate.”

the solution

Alberon delivered a creative new website, which is easy to navigate and manage.  Large images showcase club members and facilities, clearly highlighting what new members can expect should they join.

The website is fully responsive, which means that visitors will have a good user experience, whatever device they use to access the website. This is especially important, as most of the club’s news is distributed via social media and accessible on mobile devices. Improved navigation means that information is now clearly laid out and can be accessed quickly and easily by visitors to the website.

media library
The tennis club was keen to use images as a prominent feature of the site to engage visitors and allow them to showcase the club’s activities and its members. Functionality in WordPress means they can upload images easily, and the WordPress ‘Enhanced Media Library’ plugin was also added, allowing site administrators can organise the high volumes of PDFs, storing them under relevant media categories. This means they can continue to update images keeping the site fresh and current.

ecommerce and websites and payments
Paypal is used on the site to allow new members to join the club and pay for their membership via the website.  The easy and quick process means new club members can simply complete a form and submit it online.

hosting and security updates
The club was keen to ensure that their new website was secure and current, so they selected the Alberon hosting package. This means that we will manage and install the latest security and content management updates, ensuring the website remains fully protected and current, now and in the future.

the result

The North Oxford tennis club now has an engaging website that they can easily manage and maintain. The new content management system allows them to easily add and update content keeping it current and encouraging visitors to return. Plus the new news section and focus on social media means they can keep their members informed of the latest club news and events.
