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

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. 


Finals Weekend - 7th & 8th September

Please find below, a link to download the Order of Play for Finals Weekend:

We request that players arrive 30 minutes BEFORE their scheduled start time. We will aim to put matches on court as soon as all players are here and fit to play! We have some new score boards which have been fixed to the courts. On the order of player, each player has been allocated as the 'Home' or 'Away' player. It would be great if players could keep the score boards up to date so that spectators can keep track of the matches.

We would love to see as many members as possible supporting the players this weekend. Tea, coffee, cake will be available on Saturday and Sunday. Filled rolls will be for sale on Saturday lunchtime with the end of tournament BBQ at approximately 2pm on Sunday. The cost of the BBQ will be £2 for a sausage hot dog or a burger.

We look forward to seeing as many people as possible enjoying the tennis over the weekend.
