- When entering the Sports Centre you may choose to wear a mask, particularly with regard to keeping their staff safe.

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!  Plans for 2022 include funding a lunchtime tennis club at Cottenham Primary School, offering half-price annual membership to new members aged 11-18, funding a 6-week family club session, contributing to our coach's Level 3 qualification, funding additional court hire for our community coaching as well as buying some new bits of equipment.  Thank you Co-op and all who shop local! LC Jan 2022.


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!
