Our Values

We think we’re right in saying that nowhere else in the area provides such good opportunities for social tennis. We play every weekend on both Saturday and Sunday starting at 1pm and on a Wed evening (summer time) at 6pm where members join in the mixed play.

There are also ladies and mens practice evenings during the league season giving opportunities for team selection. We have 3 ladies, 4 mens, several veterans teams as well as junior teams entered in the local leagues.

The juniors have their coaching sessions (see coaching) and access to the courts at most times for their own social play.

If you’re just starting your tennis career and concerned about making a fool of yourself and would like some help before playing with others, or if you just want to improve your technique, we can introduce you to our coaching team who have over 50 years of experience, working with all standards and abilities.

If we sound like your kind of Club, go to the Membership forms page and download an Application Form. If you’d prefer to talk to someone first, then why not visit our Contact page to email the Club, or see the Committee/Members page and give one of us a call.

Hope to see you soon!

Social Play

We pride ourselves on the quality of our social play, with very popular sessions on Saturday and Sunday afternoons as well as Wednesday evenings in summer. These are fun sessions, an opportunity to meet people and play mixed doubles in a relaxed environment.

Coaching Programme
