Join us for tennis at... Dedham LTC

Lockdown #2

Unfortunately, the news that we have been dreading all day has come through. (No, not the one from across the pond) 
The LTA has just announced that their efforts to keep tennis activities open for clubs like us have been unsuccessful, and tennis activity in England will cease for the duration of the national lockdown.

Our courts will be closed for all usage until further notice. It is a great shame especially as we have just repaired the No.1 Court surface. 

We have grown accustomed to seeing the government change its mind, and if there are any (hopefully happy) updates then we will let you know through our usual communication channels.

Stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you on the courts when this situation is over.

Dedham LTC - About Us (In normal times)

Dedham Tennis Club, a few miles north of Colchester in the Stour valley, has three all-weather tennis courts. We are a community club set in the heart of a beautiful village green offering tennis for all. 

We have weekly club sessions for members throughout the year; in the winter (between clock changes) they are on Sunday from 10.30 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. , and in the summer they are on Sundays from 3 to 6 p.m. (NB. on the first Sunday of each month they are from 9.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m.) and on Wednesdays they are from 6.00 p.m. onwards.  See the booking calendar for exact details.

We run 6 teams in the Colchester and District league. We offer taster club sessions so if you wish to come along and join in, we would love to hear from you. 

Junior coaching is available on Saturday mornings, organised by our fantastic coach Zico. We have great Individual and family group memberships so you can join in and play with your children. We also offer adult coaching, just go to our coaching page for details.

You do not have to be a member to book our courts. Go to our booking page and follow the instructions to book courts, pay on line and start playing.

To run alongside our development of our junior section, we are also keen to offer our support to any player who wants to develop their coaching skills. So if that is you, please contact us.
