Welcome to Burneside TC

Burneside Tennis Club, Cumbria

It's never the wrong time to join Burneside Tennis Club. We offer pro rata discounts on any membership taken out during the year.

Members receive AGM minutes, our newsletter and membership renewal forms in March each year. The full membership year begins in April. Current membership is frozen whilst we are under such unusual and difficult circumstances due to the coronavirus in the UK. Given government advice we have suspended all tennis for the forseeable future. We will alert members as soon as we can lift this restriction.  Stay well George, Sheila & Rachel.


We are a small friendly tennis club. Members play social tennis and have access to use the courts at other times. We normally run a veterans [over-40s] team in local leagues.

Burneside is a village 2 miles north-west of Kendal. The club has been here since 1950. The courts are on the edge of the village, alongside a recreation area and farmland.

We have 2 hard courts, recently resurfaced in September 2016 and repainted in September 2019. There is a small clubhouse with a toilet.

Visitors may play by the hour (£6 per court, racquets and balls available). Court keys available at Burneside village shop.

Why not come along and see us? We'd be glad to give you a tour and tell you more about the activities and facilities. As well as local residents, regular visitors with holiday homes in the Kendal area also join the club. Contact us below to arrange a visit.
