FUNDING FROM THE CO-OP - Thank you to the Co-op for awarding us a whopping sum as one of their chosen local good causes.  We have run three subsidised Tennis Xpress adult beginner courses and the participants were then offered reduced-price membership and follow-on coaching.  Many have taken up the offers and are now soaring ahead with their newfound skills and confidence.  Keep going, you are awesome!  We are looking into how to spend the remainder in a way that will continue to enable the club to be inclusive and ensure continuity for people on their tennis journey.  Watch this space for further offers! LC 20th November 2021.


We are a small friendly club, based at Cottenham Sports Centre, behind the Village College.  There are 4 floodlit, all-weather courts so we can play all year.  A full range of professional coaching is available throughout the year during term time for all ages 3 to 80+ and all abilities.  We also run holiday camps to keep the kids busy and active.  We enter two competitive men's teams in the Cambridgeshire league matches and we have ladies and mixed doubles teams too. We are always looking for more players in all teams, no need to be Wimbledon standard! Why not come along one Wednesday to social/club night (7.00-9.30pm) and get a feel for the club.  If you enjoy playing at the grass courts in the summer we hope you will continue for the rest of the year playing at Cottenham Sports Centre and maybe even join the club!

Club Night / Social Tennis:

These are social tennis sessions for age 16+, just turn up, no need to book, no charge.  These run all year apart from over the Christmas period.  A club member will be there to provide balls and organise games of doubles.  This is a great way to meet people and find others who play at your level.  We advise joining the club WhatsApp Group to take part.  Members should email the Club Secretary with their mobile number on [email protected] to join the WhatsApp Group.
