How to find us
Goring Tennis Club
Sheepcot Recreation Ground, Gatehampton Road
Welcome to Goring Tennis Club - a friendly village tennis club in a beautiful location
The club is on Sheepcot Recreation Ground, Goring-on-Thames, rural South Oxfordshire. It’s easy to find and a lovely place to be.
We welcome players of all ages and levels. Currently we have around 250 members who play on our five all-weather courts, two of which benefit from being floodlit for those shorter days - or longer fifth sets!
We have our very own experienced professional LTA accredited+ coach, Jonathan Howey (Oxfordshire Tennis), with tennis camps for kids and group or individual coaching for everyone from the youngest to the oldest, any experience or ability - beginners to tournament level. For more information on provision look at Juniors or Coaching in the tabs above.
Our cosy clubhouse with essential tennis tea serving facilities sits courtside so you can watch the action. Some of our other facilities will benefit from proposed developments - watch this space.
Car parking is close to our courts and access is level and unrestricted.
Our current chair is Jane Cartledge who is ably assisted by an enthusiastic and friendly management committee. Contact details are available on the contacts page of this website.
