 We continue to LIVE! stream our 2x 'Get Active' sessions a week on our Facebook Page on Tuesdays/Thursdays at 11am to help keep you all fit and healthy.

The safety of our members, staff and coaches is paramount, so there will be strict rules to follow while we move through the phased exit from lockdown:  


LTA guidance can be found here: For Players, For Venues, For Coaches. Please ensure you read the relevant guidelines and the following information before resuming tennis activity:

Membership and booking

  • Only members will be able to book and play - no visitors. If you wish to join the club you can check out more info here
  • All courts need to be booked via Clubspark - no ‘turn up and play'. If you join the club, we'll send you a link to the ClubSpark App.


Arriving and Playing at the Club

  • Social distancing on site must be adhered to at all times.
  • Avoid turning up early for your booking.
  • Hand sanitisers will be made available upon arrival.
  • An entry and exit system is provided on the courts, and please leave the court gates open.
  • Singles and doubles can be played with members of other households whilst maintaining 2 metre social distancing. If you play with people from another household, we recommend that both players bring their own marked up balls and not touch the other players' balls. We recommend no sharing of other equipment.
  • Coaching will resume on a one to one basis.
  • Juniors booking/playing must be supervised by a single adult.
  • No spectators are allowed, apart from where the attendance of one parent/guardian or carer is required. They must remain outside of the court area.
  • There will be no court benches or net handles.
  • Finish your session 5 minutes early and vacate the court swiftly through the designated exit to minimise social contact.



  • The club house remains closed, there will be no toilet facilities.
  • The shop is closed until further notice.
  • The cafe is open for takeway service.

We are grateful for your continued patience during this time. 

Keep track on our daily challanges and our weekly online programme at Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. Everybody, keep well and safe and we look forward to seeing you back on court soon
