We have 13 tennis courts; 6 grass (open early May to early September), 4 hard and 3 Tiger Turf all weather courts and are just installing floodlights on our three Tiger Turf courts. Our large Clubhouse serves great food during the day, at weekends and some evenings during the week. The caterers also provide BBQs for us during the Summer. The Clubhouse has a large bar with multiple TV screens where you can enjoy all the major sporting events on Sky and other channels. We share our ground with London Welsh Amateur Rugby Club in the Winter and Richmond Cricket Club and the Richmond Archery Club in
the Summer creating a lively sociable atmosphere all year round.
We have various teams; Men’s, Women’s, Mixed, Junior, Midweek and Veterans. All our Men’s and Women’s teams take part in both the Summer and Winter Surrey Leagues as does the Midweek team. The Mixed and Veterans teams only play in the Summer Leagues. The Club subscribes to the LTA Tennis Jeanie Singles Box League. There are also organised local friendly inter-club matches.
We hold an annual Club Tournament with Men’s and Women’s singles, doubles, mixed doubles and social mixed doubles competitions. Our Head Coach also organises a Junior Tournament with the finals being played on the Club’s Finals Day which is usually in July.
There are coach organized mix-in Club tennis session over the weekend and midweek. Minimum standards of play apply for different sessions which means they provide opportunity for good tennis as well as time for members to socialise.
