Welcome to our family-friendly club at the heart of the community Bearsted & Thurnham Lawn Tennis Club

Come along and celebrate our 40th Anniversary

Saturday 8th June, from 2.00pm at the club

The club’s 40th anniversary celebrations are upon us. Thankfully the weather is forecast to be fair. We have set up the tents (including a beer tent), got out the bunting, the ice cream factory is in place, cake is delivered, real ale settling and prosecco is on ice. Food and music will be set up in the morning before you arrive.

We have organised a fun-packed afternoon of tennis, food and a glass of fizz to toast the founder members and our great club. Live jazz from Judders in the afternoon/ evening and dance music in the evening if required. The bar(s) will be available throughout the event.

We would like to think that we will provide something for everyone at some part of the day, so please come along to whichever parts of the timetable most appeal to you.

2.00pm - 4.00pm FUN TENNIS
5.00pm - SPEECHES

A Club for all standards and ages

The Club is situated close to the Woodland Trust in the heart of Bearsted between the Holy Cross Church and the Ashford Road (A20).

Since its inception in 1979, and with the continuing evolution, the club maintains its original ethos – to offer excellent well maintained facilities for all standards and ages, as well as having a superb reputation for being a very social and family orientated club alongside a high standard of competitive tennis. We offer coaching programmes for all and are particularly keen to encourage juniors. Currently there are approximately 400+ Members, many of which are families. 

The club prides itself on being organised, maintained and run mainly through the goodwill of its Members. The only paid staff are the cleaner and the gardener. All other work at the club is purely on a volunteer basis, so we encourage members to play their part and offer whatever time or skills they can to help the club maintain its standards and reputation.
