We have an effective WhatsApp group so you can check if players are attending club sessions even during inclement weather. 

Electronic court booking means you can book to play with your friends or family too.

In addition to social tennis, we organise Club tournaments. Our internal tournaments run during the summer and box leagues run all year round for all standards of players.

We compete against other Clubs, in the Ipswich and District League. We have several ladies, mens and mixed teams playing in the Summer, Winter and  floodlit leagues.
