Welcome to Longthorpe Lawn Tennis Club

On behalf of the Committee and the members… “Welcome !”  

Please join in our club sessions…. and our social events…. and help to maintain our reputation for offering a good standard of tennis in a friendly and inclusive atmosphere in a quiet and peaceful village environment.

We ask each member to take responsibility for taking care of the courts and the surrounding areas…..especially during these unprecedented times.  Please read our General Information Document to familiarise yourself with the club.

Please take a few moments to review our website by clicking on the Policies, and check out the ‘Members Playing Information and Club Rules’ as well as the range of other information. 

All Members are reminded that predominantly white tennis clothing must be worn on the courts. Outer wear is exempt from this (in both Summer …although white sweatshirt/fleeces preferred…and Winter)

White tennis specific shoes are preferred (Omnicourt shoes are recommended).  No ridged trainers please as they damage the courts.

All adult members will be allocated a named clothes peg that will be found on the playing board.  The playing board is used for open club sessions and helps denotes order of play and who is present and ready to go on court.
Club sessions operate on a Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Summer start time is 2pm while the winter start time 1pm.  Refreshments, a hot drink and cake or biscuits, are generally available at a cost of £1 per person. 

Evening sessions are on a Tuesday and Thursday starting at 6pm.  Floodlight Tokens are available from Angie Axe, and if used on club nights money will be reimbursed by the Treasurer.   Ladies sessions are on Wednesday at 1pm.

Access to the courts for other times is via the combination lock.  The combination number for court access will have been sent to you.  We would ask you to keep this combination number somewhere safe and not divulge it to non members.

Please note that play may NOT start before 9am.

Thank you for joining Longthorpe Lawn Tennis Club…..have fun!
