Blaydon Tennis Club Celebrating 100 Years in 2022!

Welcome to Blaydon Tennis Club.

We are a friendly and welcoming club, situated in the beautiful Derwent Walk Country Park.

Founded in 1922 as ‘The Blaydon Wesley Guild Lawn Tennis Club’, the club merged with 'Blaydon Methodist Tennis Club' in 1961, before moving to its current and enviable premises in June 1999.

With 9 floodlit all-weather courts, no floodlight curfew, plentiful and free parking, top class coaching, a pavilion and sheltered viewing area, Blaydon Tennis Club is really the place to play in the North East.

We welcome all ages and abilities, members and non-members.

Pay and Play courts for non-members are available to book.
