Welcome to Hungerford Tennis Club
The Hungerford Tennis Club is set behind the High Street in the leafy Croft, close to the Kennet and Avon canal, in the heart of Hungerford. It is a friendly club of mixed standards which welcomes people of all ages and abilities.
The club is run entirely by volunteers, so at times there are volunteers out maintaining the courts, surrounding areas and the changing rooms. The Clubhouse has a Club Steward employed to manage the club house and bar, but the sportsground work is voluntary!
The sportsground was gifted by Mr Wooldridge to the Hungerford Club in August 1918, so we are looking forward to celebrating our centenary soon. Planning is underway so look out for further information! Although the sportsground had been in use before August 1918, tennis did not begin until this date.
Originally the courts were grass, however the cost of maintaining grass courts proved excessive and the present courts are high quality hard courts. With the hard courts play is possible virtually all year round. We have two floodlit courts but also have a set of portable floodlights for additional winter play. We re-surface, re-fence, clean and re-paint the courts at regular intervals and carefully set aside funds towards these substantial expenses on a monthly basis.
In 1980 it was decided that improved changing rooms were required and so the prresent changing rooms were designed and mainly built by club members. These are used jointly by the Bowls and Tennis sections.
We are always planning further improvements as well as general maintenance so we can enjoy high quality facilities and excellent tennis.
If you are considering membership, you are most welcome to join us at club play. Details are on the 'What's On' page.
Access to courts and changing rooms
All members receive an email which provides joining information including the padlock code for entry to the courts.
The same code gives access to the key store by the changing room doors facing the courts.
Please replace the keys after use and ensure that the courts and changing rooms are all locked before you leave.
When you finish playing, please release the tension on the nets.
