As you will be aware, we are unable to open the courts until we get the all clear from the LTA and the government. We are keeping our spirits up and are hopeful that we will be able to play before too long. More importantly, Jack is going to mow the courts once a week so they will be good to go once we get the all clear.
Saturday 16th May at 2pm.

This event will be postponed until such time as we start playing again. Once this nightmare is over hopefully you will all feel the urge to get outside and play tennis. You will all be very welcome to join this family friendly club. For further details please contact the secretary, Rosie Barfoot on 01305 261540 or check our website:

In the meantime, stay safe and keep your spirits up.



We are one of the few grass court clubs in the County, which provides unlimited access to members and local people.
We are a friendly community club, which welcomes tennis players of all ages and ability. There are about forty current members. You can come and enjoy playing tennis on grass courts set in an idyllic relaxing location. Whether a member or a visitor, you can make use of these lovely facilities. This is a great way to stay fit, have some fun and make new friends. Membership of the club and Lawn Tennis Association gives you access to a special ballot for Wimbledon tickets.

We are keen to encourage new players. Juniors have access to coaching with Rachel Smith, who is a very good qualified coach, on a Saturday. Adult beginners can also hire her services, or just come along and play; to learn by doing.

There is an annual membership of £35/adult and £10/child (under 16). Family membership of 2 adults and 2 children (<16 years) is £70/annum. This allows unlimited use of the courts during the season. Visitors can use the courts for £5/person/visit. It is also possible to hire both courts for a private function. Price is on application.
As this is a self-financing club, we also run fund raising events.
