Greenwood Park Tennis Club Events

Regular Social Tennis

Adult doubles social tennis sessions are held weekly throughout the year, on Thursdays from 7pm and Sundays from 10am. All members of all standards are very welcome.  We also invite non-members to attend 2 sessions, to try us out before joining.

On Thursdays we play 25min games then mix in, to avoid anyone having to sit out too long if there are odd numbers. We have a Whatsapp group so members can check who is going, which is useful if the weather is marginal. Contact David Thompson with your mobile number, to be added to the group.

On Sundays we generally play full sets then mix in.  Occasionally we may play short sets if we have odd numbers, to avoid people waiting too long for a game.

During the summer months, some of the Sunday social sessions are replace by tournaments, to which all members are invited.  See the events calendar below.

Junior social sessions are held on Friday evenings throughout the year at 4pm. Please contact Sam Pink for further information.

There is a session on Thursday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30am which is open to members and also non-members who have retired and wish to play social outdoor tennis of average standard. For non-members this is on a 'pay and play' basis for £3 a session.  However, please note that members will not necessarily be there every week, and so any non-members wishing to play should either check in advance whether anyone will be playing that week, or they can turn up on spec in the hope that there will be others there playing.
