Like playing on grass?
For many people it’s the best way to enjoy tennis in the summer. We have 10 fantastic grass courts for member’s to play, but if sometimes you just want to watch, you can do so from the comfort of the clubhouse balcony.
Prefer hard courts or just want to play all-year round?
Not a problem, as we have 7 all weather outdoor courts and you have a choice of surfaces. There are 4 synthetic clay courts and 3 artificial grass courts to choose from.

In the summer we host top quality tournaments including the International Seniors and the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) County Cup events, with the recent addition of a Touchtennis competition.
We are proud to have been recognised as the ‘Seniors Tennis GB club of the year’ in 2017 and to have won the County ‘Tournament of the year’ for the same event in 2019.
The club also holds its own tournaments – is yours the next name on our Champions List?
We run regular Box leagues for our members throughout the year.
Divisions, based on ability levels, comprise five, six or seven players. Each player will receive one point for playing each game (to reward playing), winning players will receive three points while losing players will pick up one point if they win a set. No walkovers will be recorded.
Players will play each other once each, so four, five or six matches in total. The default match format is two or three normal sets with a tie-break at 6-6. However, to make things as flexible as possible and if both players agree, matches can be two normal sets followed by a third set consisting of a long tie-break up to 10. Alternatively players may also agree a shorter set format – first to four – best of three sets should they wish.
We hope to start the 2021 box leagues earlier next year in April.
Further details, results and regular updates are included in the Latest Tennis News on this page.
