Welcome to Cottenham Tennis Club

Latest Covid-19 Updates

Unfortunately all tennis courts, indoors and outdoors are currently closed due to Covid-19.

But the GOOD NEWS is we are aiming to re-open outdoors on 6th April 2021.


We are planning to run our Easter Holiday Tennis Camp from 6th-9th April. The LTA have confirmed that group coaching can go ahead (group sizes of 15  kids and 12  adults).  We are just waiting for confirmation that everything is in place at the Sports Centre to re-open as planned.  See our Holiday Camp page for details.


This will be subject to rule of 6.  Start date is to be confirmed but hopefully 8th April.

For some ideas about keeping active at home see the LTA link here

You can read the latest advice from the LTA for players, venues and coaches here  LTA Covid advice. There are some FAQs on the LTA's page which may help clarify the current situation.

QR code

Anyone entering the Sports Centre site is now required to scan the NHS Covid-19 QR code.  Please download the app in preparation.  QR codes are located around the site, inside and outside.  This applies to all adults age 18 and over and includes social play, coaching, club night, coaches, visiting teams and parent spectators.   Children taking part in coaching do not need to be scanned in as the coach keeps a record of participants.  If you don't have the app or your phone please see a member of staff at the Sports Centre who will take your name and number.  These details are kept for 21 days only.  You will need to wear a mask when going inside the Sports Centre building.



Memberships for 2021 will soon be available via the Tennis Club

Please bear with us while we get our 2021 membership packages sorted.

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 on Wednesday evenings and Saturdays for all ages 3 to 70+ and all abilities. There is an active competitive men's team playing in the Cambridgeshire leagues and we now have ladies and mixed doubles up and running too. We are 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!
