Social Tennis

The club welcomes players of all standards, and there are opportunities for each member to find the activity, group or session that suits them best.

League times are match practise for the league teams, whilst social tennis is open to all members of all abilities.

Social club sessions

These sessions are designed as primarily social, rather than ultra-competitive. There is a rota of more experienced members who volunteer to take charge at these club sessions. The role of the member in charge is to organise the members who turn up at a particular session into groups to play each other, and to circulate players so that everyone enjoys their game.

Tuesday morning mixed social tennis, 10:30 to 12:30. 

Short sets are played, (four games) and the coach Ollie starts the sessions. There is a WhatsApp group set up for anyone wanting to join.

Thursday afternoon mixed social tennis, 14:00 to 16:00

This group is run by Ali and also has a WhatsApp group set up for club members wanting to join.

Friday night mixed social tennis, 18:00 to 20:30 (open to guests at £3.50 each)

WhatsApp Groups

The use of WhatsApp for the Tuesday and Thursday social tennis has worked well.  Please email us or contact the session leader if you wish to be included on any groups.  Every week those wanting to pay can let the group know they are available.  It also helps when the weather may cause doubt so you know if the session is going ahead or not.

Please only use these groups for tennis availability only.

Private use

Members can book a court for a group of members that they have arranged to play with privately. The court bookings diary can be accessed via the member’s court booking page.
