How to find us
Cottenham Tennis Club
Cottenham Tennis club, Cottenham Sports Centre
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!
Contact [email protected] for further information.

As a member, you don't have to book a court during club hours. You do need to book outside club hours. All bookings are made via the Sports Centre in person or via their online booking system on www.cottenhamsportscentre.co.uk. Time slots are available in hourly sessions but if you would like to start at a different time, or play for 1.5 hours please phone or email them to arrange this.
Out of club hours, members can book at the reduced tennis club rate of £2.50.
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.
