Tennis for Adults


 

Opportunities to play 

Adult Members of all ages and playing ability can play tennis throughout the whole year, seven days a week. Members can play with a fellow Member, bring a guest (up to 3 times, see General Rules), compete in teams and tournaments, take part in Wednesday evening and Sunday morning Club Tennis, join a coaching programme, play on Men's/Ladies practice nights, and also come along to the wide range of social events at the club.

 

Club Social Tennis (Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings)

Club Tennis takes place all year round and is a great way to get to know more members at the club as well as experiencing a wide range of playing standards. It is considered a great social occasion and is open to Adults and Juniors over 18 years of age, and for Juniors less than 18 years of age who have been awarded Club Colours.  For more information visit the Club Tennis page.

 

Tournaments

There are opportunities to enter club tournaments and also external tournaments throughout the year. The main event is the Annual Club Championship which begins in March and culminates at the end of the summer with a Finals Weekend. It is a great opportunity to meet and play other Members. Do not be put off entering just because you think you may not have a chance of winning – there are plate events and drawn events too, so everyone has a reasonable opportunity to reach the Finals and win a trophy! Finals weekend is the most popular event of the year, both socially as well as from a tennis perspective. For more infomation visit the Tournaments page.
