We run a range of adult tennis drop-in sessions at the club, which are open to any member, as well as a number of club tournaments throughout the year. Our programme is as follows:
Adult Social Tennis
There are four regular social tennis sessions a week, where members can just turn up and play in a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The sessions are held at every week throughout the year at the following times:
Wednesday morning: 10.00am – 12.00 noon (U3A and senior members)
Wednesday evening: 6.30pm – 9.30pm, Courts 1, 2, 3, 4
Friday morning: 10.00am – 12.00 noon, Courts 3,4
Friday evening: 7.00pm – 9.30pm, Courts 1, 2 intermediate/advanced, Court 3 dedicated to new starters
Sunday morning: 9.00am – 1.00pm, Courts 1,2, 3,4
Social tennis is for Adult club members and is a doubles format only. Sets are first to six games (with a short deuce ‘sudden death’ deciding point if members are waiting) . If you want to play singles, book a court at another time using the MyCourts booking system. Juniors may join social tennis if invited to do so by a coach.
Prospective members can attend one social session to decide whether they want to join the club. Social tennis sessions are not for guests of members (unless they are visiting as prospective members).
Our annual Club Championship runs between May to September every year. The tournament includes ladies and mens singles, doubles and mixed doubles championships.
The Championship winners are all featured on our boards in the clubhouse. If you are a new member wishing to compete in the Championship, we can always help with finding you a partner for doubles.
We also run a Plate Championship which is for people who are knocked out in the early stages of the regular Championship. The Plate runs concurrently with the Club Championship.
A singles ladder runs throughout the year. Members can organise their own matches and move up and down the ladder according to their results. The ladder is entirely run online, easy to operate, and scores are updated on a daily bases through a membership-wide email. Members can log on to Tennis Rungs here.
There are a number of tournaments throughout the year, such as the American tournaments and Men’s and Women’s doubles tournaments. These are really good fun and a great opportunity to meet and socialise with other players, over a BBQ and a few drinks.
We compete in both the men’s and women’s Surrey and Southwark Leagues in singles and doubles. You can check on our current league standings here.
It’s never too late to learn tennis or to take it up again after a long break. We run drop-in group coaching sessions every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday at 11am for beginners.
If you want to keep fit and improve your game at the same time, then cardio tennis is just what you are looking for.
Our weekly Cardio Tennis sessions are held on Saturdays at 12.30pm and members are welcome to just turn up. Sessions cost £5 per person and the first taster session is free.
