Welcome to The Grange Lawn Tennis Club

IMPORTANT UPDATE 10th September 2020- UPDATE on COVID 19 

Dear Members,

We hope you are all keeping well and saying safe.

In line with Government announcement from 14th September of restricting groups of no more than 6 people meeting up inside or outside we unfortunatly  need to make changes to how we all can access the courts and continue to play tennis safely.

From Monday 14th September we will re- introduce the court booking system for all play -both for arranged play and in the social tennis sessions (Saturday afternoon and Tuesday evenings). You may play in groups of up to 4 people maximum per court.

Reminder on registering and using the court booking system: Clubspark Booking Tool – click the Booking tab on our website - here is the link. Its quick and easy to book, cancel and manage your court bookings. We ask all members to book their court sessions. You will need your LTA British Tennis Login to access it. Forgotten your BT login or want to join as a free British Tennis Lite member? -  head over to the LTA website here.

See here for Guidance on Making a Court Booking and here for Guidance on using the  ClubSpark Booker App.

Reminder of LTA Guidelines and social distancing requirements to stay safe while at the club are here.

To participate safely in social sessions, we must all:

  • adhere to LTA Guidance for Venues and for Players
  • do a pre-attendance self-assessment for any COVID19 symptoms using the information on the NHS website. If you feel unwell, stay home and stay safe.
  • Follow handwashing guidance/and use hand gel after touching gates, surfaces, balls etc
  • If you develops symptoms of COVID-19 after recently playing at the Grange, you must follow the Government’s ‘test and trace’ guidelines, which can be read on the Gov.uk website. To assist track and trace please use the Grange Social WhatsAp group chat to indicate if you are attending social  session.
  • Maintain 2m from other people (except those from your household) on and off the courts and observe social distancing via the Government advise.
  • Our normal social play etiquette applies – doubles play, one short set – and maintain social distancing at all times.
  • Courts will not be bookable for  coaching sessions, but at all other times please continue to book courts for social and private arranged play

Clubhouse;

Welcome to Grange Lawn Tennis Club

The Grange Lawn Tennis Club (LTC) is an active social tennis club in the centre of Burton-on-Trent, near Burton’s Town Hall and the railway station. Established in 1884 we are one of the oldest Lawn Tennis Clubs in the UK. We are competitive in local league matchplay with a variety of teams. Our main distinction (aside from great members) is our four grass courts, which supplement our two all-season floodlit hard courts.

You don’t have to go to Wimbledon to play on grass! 

The club is open to anyone - we have social (non-playing) members, as well as players of all ages and skill levels. The Grange is always happy to welcome prospective members, with our Saturday Social (tea and tennis) sessions providing an ideal opportunity to meet us. Saturday Social begins at 2pm, after the group coaching sessions. (Note that in the darkest mid-winter Saturdays, it may be best to pre-arrange some playing partners.)

We also have a comprehensive coaching program for all ages; both group and private lessons are available throughout the week. See the Coaching page for more information. Also look for us on Facebook for current news Search: Grange Lawn Tennis Club. 

The Grange LTC has been called “The Best Kept Secret in Burton-on-Trent” - come and see for yourself! It’s ace.

Grange LTC is proud to state that our policies and practices conform to the high standards set by the LTA to ensure our venue provides a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment for members, players and visitors.
