The club shares its site and entrance gate with Gosforth Bowling Club.

Please note, that if you want purely individual coaching at GLTC, you will have to pay an annual coaching membership of £5, on top of the standard private tuition fee. This can be paid separately on our coaching pages, and entitles you to receive only private tuition from our coaches, and must be paid before your first lesson. It does not entitle the member to any other services such as group coaching, tournaments, match play or social play. Thank you.


Committee meeting minutes: Available on the committee/minutes page, which requires a password available to members only.

Keys: All adult members can, on payment of a deposit, have keys to the main entrance & courts and also the clubhouse. It is the member’s responsibility to ensure the site, all 5 courts and clubhouse are locked when that member is the last to leave.
