We are pleased to announce that the courts are now open. According to LTA and Government guidelines, currently only paid up members can use the courts. People from different households can NOW play doubles provided they follow the safe play protocols. We have a new on-line booking system and this must be used. As restrictions alter, we will keep you up-dated. There will be no events or club sessions for the time being.

We are one of the few grass court clubs in the County, which provides unlimited access to members and local people (in normal times). Hopefully we can open to visitors again soon.
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. As a member, 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 2021.

We are keen to encourage new players. Juniors have access to coaching with Rachel Smith, who is a Level 2 qualified coach.

There is an annual membership of £40/adult and £10/child (under 16). Family membership of 2 adults and 2 children (<16 years) is £80/annum. This allows unlimited use of the courts during the season provided they are booked. This is a self-financing club, so your support is welcomed.
