Welcome to Goring Tennis

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 350 members who play on our five all-weather courts, two of which are floodlit.

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.

We have social play sessions on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8.30a.m onwards, Sunday mornings 10-12a.m and Tuesday evenings 6pm onwards. If you would like more information or an introduction please contact membershipsec@goring-tennis.co.uk

Car parking is close to our courts and access is level and unrestricted.
