20/12/21 Courts 1-3 CLOSED
Due to the recent storms and bad weather, the club's top three courts became waterlogged, this resulted in pools of sludge forming in areas of poor drainage. We have taken the decision to restrict play on the top three courts as currently, they are unplayable. Please note that these courts are due to be upgraded in February so rather than attempt to remedy the problem, they may remain out of action until then.

Junior coaching moves indoors!

Club Development Plans
Replacing the playing surface on our top three courts is our priority for next season. This will allow us to host local tournaments, attract more members, offer more courts for public play and benefit our coaching programme. If we are sucessful with our funding applications, we also hope to improve court access, the environment around the courts and install an automated gate and floodlight management system. Please read about our development plans and how you can help the club.
Update (20/09/21): the club has received grants from Northumberland County council (£5000) and Suez communities Trust (£50,000) towards this!
Have you left anything at the club?
We've been picking up an increasing amount of clothing, water bottles and other items off the courts lately. If you think that you have left anything at the club please check the lost property webpage of the MCHTC website. Here you will be able to claim any piece of property as well as ask the club manager to look out for anything that you may have lost recently.
3/11/20: our online club store is now live!
We have been working with The Winning Margin to develop our Morpeth Tennis Club-branded Babolat tenniswear. Orders are now being taken.
