Adult tennis

Game on

There's a great choice of ways to play at NPL Tennis, including league matches, friendly games and weekend social tennis. We also offer adult courses - see below for details. If you want to play outside of matches and social sessions, it's a good idea to check when junior courses are happening.

Summer 2020 sessions

Coronavirus has changed many things this year but we're delighted to be open and offer as many chances as possible to play tennis  on wonderfully-kept courts. Find out about court availability in our special summer 2020 schedule that covers school holiday camps.

Social tennis

Social sessions offer the chance to just turn up and play. Based on doubles play, the accent is on fun and enjoyment. Players organise themselves but should be inclusive and ready to join any games when asked.
