Welcome to our friendly club: tennis at all levels for all ages
SHTC provides five floodlit all-weather carpet and sand courts. The tennis pavilion has a kitchen, changing rooms, showers, Sports TV covering all tennis competitions & a fully licensed bar. Our highly competitive annual subscription (£240 for adults) works out at £4.60 a week for unlimited tennis. Over 65s pay £160. Under 18's pay only £70.
Opening Hours: The courts are open dawn to dusk (& beyond thanks to our floodlights). To guarantee a court, a no-fee booking system is available on a sheet outside the pavilion.
Floodlights: Available on all courts till 10.00. Outside our regular social sessions, you will be charged at a rate of £2 per half-hour. The easy-to-use coin operated light meters accept £1 coins only. Read more

Guests: Guests are welcome at SHTC, on payment of £5.00 per visit. A guest can come a maximum of three times at weekends, evenings or bank holidays without becoming a member.
Dress code: We are not a “tennis-whites” kind of club. However, we are here to play sport and expect our members to dress accordingly: no jeans or beachwear. We insist on tennis shoes being worn to protect the courts and yourselves: and if you have an urge to remove your shirt in the summer months, please desist.
Rules & Regs: Displayed on the club noticeboard. SHTC club rules are obvious and largely common sense. We require respect, courtesy and consideration towards fellow members and club premises. We all aim to keep the courts and pavilion clean and tidy at all times and we don’t like swearing, racquet abuse or cheating. Read more
