Welcome Letter

To help you to get off to the best start possible we have put together some important information about the club, and how you can get started playing as soon as possible. 

Courts and Booking

We have three all-weather courts and six hard courts. Other than for organised club sessions or club groups, courts must be booked in advance using the ClubSpark system (the booking system allows bookings up to 2 weeks in advance).  Click here to book a court. You must be logged into the website for this to work. There are no charges for booking courts. To try and ensure all members get reasonable access to the courts, each member can make up to three bookings per seven-day period, and each booking can be from 30 mins to 120 mins long.  You can also book the practice wall and the ball machine.

Club Social Tennis

As well as just making your own court booking, there are a huge number of ways to get out there and start playing some social tennis. We also run a number of sessions throughout the week where you can join in a pre-organised session with other members.  To find out more about what we have going on, please visit the social tennis section of the website

League and Cup Tennis

The clubs enter mens', ladies and mixed teams in a number of local and regioal leagues.  To find out more about playing competitive league and cup tennis visit the teams part of the website.


We are partnered with SMASH Tennis, who offer a range of coaching options to our members. To find out more, please click on the relevant link below;

We normally run tournaments right through the year. These are often handicapped which means everyone has a chance of winning. Entry to all tournaments is made online here. If you have any questions or trouble registering please contact Andrew Giltrap at (07852 172429).


The floodlights can be used by members up to 10pm. The cost is £1 for 35 minutes and the slot meters are located on the ground floor towards the rear of the clubhouse. The lights will give a red warning light when there is 10 mins left to give players a chance to feed the meter if they want to extend the session.


Members can bring along 1 guest per session so long as their name is indicated on the booking via the website, with a payment of £2.50 per half hour.

Clubhouse and Bar

The clubhouse has ladies' and gentlemen’s changing rooms with showers, disabled facilities including a lift, a large function room with a licensed bar and kitchen, along with a balcony overlooking the courts. The clubhouse is available for private hire.  During the summaer the bar is open each Weds and Friday from 8pm until 10pm or last leaver, and on Saturday from 3.30pm until 5pm or last leaver.

Shoe Tags

All members receive a shoe tag as proof of membership, please wear it when you are on the courts.  Lindsay Newton (Club Secretary) will distribute these during April. Please contact her if you haven’t received your tag.

Clothing and Footwear

Traditional ‘whites’ are not required but shoes should be designed for racket sports. Black-soled shoes or trainers with ribs on the edge of the soles should not be worn as they damage the court surfaces.

Tennis Etiquette

It is also well worth brushing up on your Tennis Etiquette before you hit the courts...

Car Parking and Bike Shed

There are a small number of car parking spaces at the club and we kindly ask members to park within the marked lines. There is also a public car park on West Street, adjacent to the club, where charges apply during the daytime Monday-Saturday.  There is also an undercover bike shelter.
