Ightham Tennis Club, The Recreation Ground, Ightham
Ightham Tennis Club is a small two-court club located in the corner of the village recreation ground. The courts are floodlit and there is plenty of parking in the recreation ground. With a heathy membership of approximately 200 spread across all age ranges our club actively encourages tennis at all levels. We have our own LTA registered club coach who runs weekly coaching sessions for juniors of all levels.
Ightham Tennis Club are members of the LTA and from time to time enter teams in both the LTA run summer and winter leagues.
We try to keep our membership fees low by asking club members to help maintain our facilities by joining ‘working party days’ and through social fundraising activities.
The club organise a number of tournaments throughout the year including one just for juniors and a Mixed Generation Tournament. There is also a ladder competion.
Members have the opportunity to meet each other through a number of regualr weekly club sessions, and we try and organise several social/fundraising events during the year such as Wine Tastings and Quiz Nights. A newsletter is circulated by email periodically giving details of current events, the website is a useful source of information, and we provide updates from time to time through the widely distributed Parish Magazine..
If you are interested in becoming a member of our tennis club please do not hesitate to get in touch directly with the Membership Secretary or with one of the committee members and they will be happy to make all necessary introductions.
Non-members are able to use the courts by paying £5 for an hour at The Hutch Deli. However, members who have booked courts have priority and non-members may have to give up their court if a member has booked it.
The courts will be available for singles, doubles, coaching and organised Club sessions from March 29th, 2021. Government guidelines do not permit socialising, and for the time being Club sessions will be restricted to 12 members in total, based on the first-come, first-served rules on the particular WhatsApp Group.
Our membership year runs from 1st April 2021 to 31st March 2022.
