Welcome to Slazenger Sports & Social Club


Slazenger is a name synonimous with tennis and the club can trace its roots back to its time as a destination for the workers of Slazenger Sports Company based at Horbury Bridge. Since its original founding, the parent company has come and gone from the area, but the name is retained in the independent club.

The ground itself was used for a time without a permanent clubhouse. However, this was fixed in 1950, when the ground was officially opened by Mrs Slazenger. An exhibition tennis game was performed by Fred Perry and Dan Maskill on the 'En Tout Cas' new red shale courts. In 1997, the club changed further as the red shale surfaced tennis courts were replaced with a state-of-the-art acyclic surface; unique in the Wakefield District. Additionally, new shower and changing facilities, as well as car parking were constructed.

These 3 high quality hard surface tennis courts are available to book throughout the year on a pay and play basis and open to everyone. Alternatively become a Tennis Member allowing 'free use' of the courts. There are very competitive rates for Adults,  Family, Students, Junior, Child  Members.

We have an increasing number of Members and run a number of Club days, tournaments, and social tennis sessions to bring people together and we have a team in the Local Wakefield League. Please consider joining us.


Under 14 year old players must be supervised by a responsible adult. 

The club has two safeguarding officers, Ann Kay and Sue Butler. The safeguarding policies can be found here along with contact details for Ann and Sue. 

The Slazenger clubhouse is also available to use, offering bar and family friendly atmosphere, welcoming to people of all ages. It has a separate members area to the rear, and an additional conservatory area facing the lawn, gardens and children’s play area. 

The conservatory and main function room can be booked out for private functions.
