An incredible weekend of celebrations took place at the end of July 2023 to mark 100 years of tennis at our home on Love Lane. Dozens joined us in celebrating the centenary of Bishop's Castle Tennis Club, with free Tennis and coaching for all on both mornings, plus a hugely exciting Exhibition match and a delicious afternoon tea on Sunday. Take a look at our photos from the weekend here!

Bishop's Castle Tennis Club

Welcome to Bishop’s Castle Tennis Club!

A friendly, welcoming and inclusive club set in the beautiful Shropshire Hills, offering great value for players of all ages and abilities.

We are delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with 'We Do Tennis' who will provide professional coaching with accredited LTA (Lawn Tennis Association) Coaches. 

For over 100 years, tennis has been played on our appropriately named Love Lane grounds, with their spectacular views of the south Shropshire hills, buzzards and red kites.

The courts are in a superb location adjacent to the A488 road, a short distance from the town centre. Car parking is available. It’s less than a 10-minute walk from town by public footpath.

We have 2 floodlit hard courts and an AstroTurf court which are played all year round.

The Club provides:

  • Social & competitive tennis for all ages and standards;
  • Coaching opportunities for those who want it;
  • We field a number of teams in the Shropshire LTA  leagues.
