We are a small friendly club, based at Cottenham Sports Centre, behind the Village College.  They have 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 70+ and all abilities.  We also run holiday camps to keep the kids busy and active.  There is a competitive men's team playing in the Cambridgeshire leagues and we now have ladies and mixed doubles teams up and running 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 (7.30-9.30pm) and get a feel for the club.  If you were playing at the grass courts during the summer of 2020 we hope you will continue playing and maybe even join the club!
