How to find us
Old Wilsonians Lawn Tennis Club
From Monday 8 June the club is open for members to play in accordance with the LTA guidelines. Members are now allowed to play doubles with players outside their own household and to have coaching in groups of no more than six adults or 15 children, including the coach. The club has implemented other measures to ensure social distancing and the safety of the members.
ABOUT THE CLUB
The club has four artificial grass courts and three hard courts, all of which are floodlit. We also have several mini red and mini orange courts for the youngsters. There are NO charges for members to use the courts, and tennis balls are provided free to members as part of the annual subscription. Floodlights are operated using coin meters with lights costing £6 per hour. During club social tennis in the winter, floodlighting costs a nominal £1 per session.
The club runs an extensive coaching programme for youngsters and adults – with sessions to suit different ages and abilities available on most days. We organise a range of tennis and social events as well. Being a very friendly club, the social aspects are just as important as the sporting achievement. We hold a great variety of social events throughout the year, including wine tasting, quiz nights, as well as more formal dinners.
The club has a courtside pavilion which provides toilet and changing facilities as well as a kitchen. This has been an important addition to support parents watching their children during coaching sessions. It provides a base to help families enjoy tennis, do school homework and have their evening meal at the same time, particularly if they are managing coaching for more than one child at a time.
Showers and a licenced bar are available in the main clubhouse. Guests are always welcome. There is a great selection of alcoholic drinks on offer, including draft beer and a wide selection of wines and spirits. Non-alcoholic drinks as well as tea coffee and hot chocolate are readily available.
There is a practice wall and an automatic ball “firing” machine – both of which allow you to practice on your own if that is your preference.
Should you wish to visit and try out the facilities, please just let us know. One of our members will be pleased to show you around. This is best arranged through the Membership Secretary Judith Heayberd on 020 8650 1702 or by email to [email protected]
