Thames Ditton Lawn Tennis Club

About the club

Established in 1882, TDLTC is the oldest tennis club in England still on its original site.

We are an LTA-affiliated and Tennismark accredited venue, run by and for our members, providing social and competitive tennis to players of all ages and abilities with a range of membership packages available. The club has a thriving and inclusive social scene centred around the clubhouse and its licensed bar.

If you are new to the game or a lapsed player we offer coaching courses throughout the year, and private coaching with our coaching team.  If you want to play more competitive tennis there are Club Tournaments for Singles, Doubles, Mixed and Vets or if you want to play for the Club we can offer members league and friendly matches against other clubs in the area. We play in the Wilson Surrey Summer and Winter Leagues (doubles) and Surrey Aegon League (singles and doubles, adults and juniors).

Coaching: Available for all ages (tots to adults) and abilities. Individual lessons by arrangement and group lessons for intermediate/improvers.  Our thriving junior coaching programme caters for both development and performance players.  Click the Coaching tab above to learn more.

Adult tennis: The club operates several mix-in sessions. Open (mixed) mix-ins run on Fridays at 6pm and on Sundays at 4pm on a turn up and play basis (contact Mike Simpson). Women's and men's mix-ins run from 1pm and 3pm respectively on Saturdays (contact Julia Francis or Ross Prideaux). For free play, club tournaments and box league matches, members make their own court bookings free of charge.  We request members release booked courts promptly when not required.
