Welcome to St Ives Tennis Club

St.Ives Tennis Club

EXCITING TIMES at St Ives Tennis Club with membership booming since the September 2020 opening of our new synthetic clay courts.

The completion of the  £100,000 re-development project - jointly funded by the club and Sport England's Community Asset Fund - saw us become the first club in Cornwall to have a synthetic clay surface.

To see how the courts project unfolded, click to watch this great video made by Tony Mason (Cornishpastyman), and yes we even made BBC Spotlight too!

Come and play on our new courts. St Ives Tennis Club is currently accepting new members while visitors can book our courts via the Booking link on this website. Membership is now free for juniors aged 10 and under.

Tennis, fun, sun and friendship - what more could you ask for?  We can't promise the sun but you're guaranteed the other three at the tennis club with the most beautiful outlook anywhere. Well, most people who play here say that!

Located just above Porthminster Beach, our two new artificial clay all-weather courts are used throughout the year.
Visitors are welcome on a pay-and-play basis (sorry, we don't hire rackets) and courts can be booked on this website with a credit or debit card.
We have no parking at the club but there may be some spaces on the nearby station car park and there is a walk-through at the back of the platform.

With the aid of a grant from Sport England, our new clubhouse was completed in 2013 and we can now welcome players with disabilities.

The latest arrival at the club is a portable floodlight system, giving us more playing and coaching time. See more on the Membership page.

If you need more information about our club contact us and we'll be happy to help. Any queries, click on "More" on the bar above, then "Contacts" and you should find who you need to email or call.
