Other Tips when booking the Courts:
In addition to the above:
Cricket matches are about to commence (April 2022) - when cricket is being played on the field beside the tennis courts, cricket balls may be hit into the courts.
Shillingstone Tennis Club does all it can to ensure the safety of tennis players. It must, however, also be the responsibility of players to safeguard themselves by being alert to this risk.
With views of Hambledon Hill, Shillingstone Tennis Club can be found on the Recreation Ground in the centre of Shillingstone village. There are two well-maintained all weather courts which can be accessed using a code for the keysafe, obtainable by being a member.
For those who do not wish to become a member, courts can be booked and paid for online after which the non-member will receive a code for the 'Igloohome' key safe. Please remember to add the names of all participants when booking, whether members or not. All ages and abilities are welcome.
As a member you can play privately with friends or family or join in with the weekly social Tennis sessions on a Thursday evening during the Summer months and Sunday afternoons (2-4pm) throughout the year. There is also a 'Rusty Racquet' session running through the winter for all skill levels running on Fridays 1.30pm - 2.30pm.
For the more competitive, the club takes part in the local Shaftesbury league during the summer and the Dorset LTA Winter and Summer leagues.
Group coaching is available for both junior and adults during the summer season and private coaching, provided by Graham Howell, is also available all year round.
