This year the club are running an additional ‘absolute beginners’ group for players either who have not played and want to start or have not played for many years (maybe since school). This will run from 5-6pm with the first couple of sessions being ‘free try out’ sessions, if interested contact Stuart on 07787 543072 or to register an interest.

The adult membership price is £106 but includes free coaching from April through to October. The club also has a strong social tennis scene, with a popular mix-in session every Monday, Wednesday and Friday Evening from 6.30pm through out the summer (April 1- September 30). All members are invited for a game of doubles. If you are new to the club this also provides an excellent opportunity to get to know people.
