GTC Coronavirus update 27 January 2022
GTC continues to promote care around COVID-19. Even as a sport where the distance between players is integral, being aware of even the mild symptoms of COVID-19 (elevated temperature, cough or changes in smell or taste) should prompt self-isolation and testing to make sure you’re safe to play. If you’re living with someone else who has symptoms you should check the LTA advice, which we endorse.
When playing, observe good hygiene practices - and enjoy your game.
The ability to book courts is one of the benefits of club membership – and we of course very much welcome new members.
It’s in members best interests to book online; use the BOOKING tab above on this website to access booking and secure your preferred court and times, subject to availability.
We have our experienced professional LTA accredited coach, Jonathan Howie (Oxfordshire Tennis) who provides a coaching service for all ages and levels. Whether returning to tennis or a club player wanting to develop your game - or even if you are a tournament level player - Jon and Oxfordshire Tennis can help you to achieve your goals.
Jon and his team also run a comprehensive mini tennis programme for children 4-10 years and training sessions for older juniors. Sessions are offered for individuals or groups. Children’s Tennis camps run at Goring Tennis Club during the Easter and Summer Holidays and even May Half Term too. Adult classes on offer are dependent on demand and vary throughout the year and may include sessions like; Over 60’s, Cardio Tennis, Team Player sessions, beginners and Rusty Rackets (for those keen to get back onto court). For more information go to the Oxfordshire Tennis website HERE.
Our club is located at Sheepcot Field, in beautiful Goring-on-Thames, rural South Oxfordshire. It’s easy to find, and a nice place to be.
We welcome members of all ages and levels, and currently about 250 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.
The clubhouse sits adjacent to the courts, and has a small galley kitchen, with (in non-COVID times) access to toilet facilities in the nearby pavilion – but in the present situation we have provided a single stand-alone unit behind the club house for the use of club members only.
Car parking is close to our courts, and during the week parking is plentiful - but at weekends football training and matches on Sheepcot Fields will affect availability.
