ALTC has six all-weather macadam courts, three of which are floodlit. We also have a mini red court to help promote junior tennis for the under-8s. The tennis pavilion has a kitchen, changing rooms, showers, Sports TV & a fully licensed bar. Our highly competitive annual subscription (£205 for adults) works out at £3.94/week for unlimited tennis. Over 65s, and Under-30s pay £150.

Opening Hours:  The courts are open from 7:00am to 9:30pm. To book a court, please use our online booking system. Read more

Guests:  Guests are welcome at ALTC, on payment of £5.00 per visit. A guest can come a maximum of three times  without becoming a member.

Dress code:  We are not a “tennis-whites” kind of club. However, we are here to play sport and expect our  members to dress accordingly: no jeans or beachwear. We insist on tennis shoes being worn to protect the courts and yourselves: and if you have an urge to remove your shirt in the summer months, please desist.

Rules & Regs:  Displayed on the club noticeboard. ALTC club rules are obvious and largely common sense. We require respect, courtesy and consideration towards  fellow members and club premises. We all aim to keep the courts and pavilion clean and tidy at all times and we don’t like swearing, racquet abuse or cheating. Read more
