How to find us
St Ives Tennis Club
Primrose Valley, Porthminster Beach
MERRY CHRISTMAS from St Ives Tennis Club where the exciting times continue 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 artificial clay.
NEW FOR AUTUMN 2023 - TOTTS TENNIS
Coach Colin Stringer is starting Tots Tennis for three to six-year-olds on Saturday October 14 at 9.30am. The half-hour sessions will run for eight weeks and the the cost for the whole course is only £20. Email email@example.com for details and to sign up.
MEMBERSHIP: St Ives Tennis Club is currently accepting new members with membership free for the 10 and unders.
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 synthetic clay all-weather courts are used throughout the year.
PAY AND PLAY: Visitors are welcome on a pay-and-play basis from Monday to Friday and courts can be reserved via the Booking link on this website with a credit or debit card. Weekends are reserved for members, league matches and junior coaching and, sorry, we don't hire out rackets.
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 club's portable floodlight system, gives us more playing and coaching time. See more on the Membership page.

SATURDAY BEGINNER AND IMPROVER SESSIONS ARE FREE FOR ALL
St Ives Tennis Club is now offering free Saturday lunchtime opportunities to any local people wanting to play.
The two-hour sessions, aimed at people living in the TR26 postcode looking to take up the sport, maybe return after a break or simply wanting to improve their skills, are being run by experienced club members every Saturday from 1 until 3pm.
The focus is on fun and non-members and members are invited to come along and give it a go.
Rackets are available to borrow, tennis balls are provided and the only proviso is that players turn up at the courts overlooking Porthminster Beach in appropriate sports shoes. Newcomers then wishing to play more will be welcome to join the club.
Anyone requiring further information can call or text Chris Allen on 07747 118811, Stephen Kempson on 07413 449338 or Carolyn Brown on 07956 382234 – or just turn up at St Ives Tennis Club at 1pm on a Saturday.

NEW: DEFIBRILLATOR AT ST IVES TENNIS CLUB
Our new defibrillator – funded by the tennis club – was up and running in October 2023.
Eleven club members attended a training course and we have others familiar with how to use it after undergoing training with other organisations in the town.
The defibrillator, sited on the outside wall of the clubhouse, is also be available to people outside the club in the event of an emergency.
South West Ambulance Service will have the gate code to the courts so they can supply it to anyone needing access in order to collect the defibrillator when they dial 999 in an emergency.
