About the club

We're a small, friendly and sociable club based in the heart of the Hampshire countryside. Established between the two world wars, the club has two floodlit, all-weather courts, and a modern clubhouse provides welcome hospitality for members, guests and visiting teams.

Friendly and welcoming

Ropley Lawn Tennis Club has enjoyed tremendous local popularity over many years, providing a friendly and relaxed atmosphere in which both beginners and more experienced players of all ages can enjoy and further their game. As well as working hard to promote tennis, the social side of things is not forgotten and several regular events form an integral part of the Club's activities. The club is run by a committee of volunteers. We have around 180 members, representing all ages and abilities.

There is a lively daytime and evening coaching programme for both adults and children - we can offer coaching to anyone who wants to learn the game.

A competitive edge

We run a men's, women’s and mixed doubles team in the East Hampshire League. We are always looking for members who might enjoy the added spice of playing in club matches - if you are interested please contact one of the team captains (details in the "Contact Us" page).

Clubmark

Clubmark was awarded to RLTC in February 2011. Clubmark is a nationally recognised indication of quality administered by the LTA based on the National guidelines for best practice. Benefits of Clubmark include ongoing programme development, increased membership, increased participation, staff development, raised profile and access to more funding opportunities.

To maintain its Clubmark status Ropley Lawn Tennis Club must continue to:

  • Ensure the club has a fair and transparent operational structure.
  • Adhere to best practice policies and procedures around safeguarding junior and adult members/users.
  • Deliver a comprehensive and all encompassing tennis programme for all ages and abilities.
  • Produce a regular clear plan of action for long term sustainability and future growth.

Mini Court

In 2013 the Parish Council provisionally approved the construction of a mini court and hitting wall between the tennis courts and the cricket nets. We believe this will be an invaluable asset both to our club and our community. The committee is currently working with the Parish Council to agree the final design and scope of usage and we will be looking to submit an application for planning permission later this year. In parallel the club will be looking to raise the significant amount of money required to fund this exciting new development.
