With four tennis courts, two of which are floodlit for year round play, access to a wonderful clubhouse and a top flight tennis coaching partner, tennis players of all ages and abilities are well catered for.

Our aim is to encourage the enjoyment of tennis in all members, whatever their age or ability. We are keen to ensure a fun and supportive environment for everyone to fulfil their potential and offer a pathway with three options for players of all abilities.

  • Beginners sessions allow anyone to come along, have a go and build confidence. This might be complete novices or hesitant ‘returners’ who want some time on court with like-minded players.
  • Our popular Social Tennis sessions are ideal for those of intermediate ability: informal games where we mix and match but (hopefully) all improve with time!
  • For the more advanced players keen to play competitive tennis, Team Nights are held for improving your game and gaining match practice.

YES! We run popular social tennis sessions where tennis members can just turn up and play. It’s relaxed, informal and often finishes with a drink in the clubhouse.

It’s easy-come, easy-go. Depending on players, we play perhaps 7 games, sometimes 5 in order to keep partners rotating if there are more players than places on court.

Top Tip: join the WhatsApp group so you can see who’s planning on going along. Useful in dodgy weather or if there are events going on etc.
