Trottiscliffe Tennis Club

Set in the Kent countryside under the North Downs, the club seeks to offer a welcoming, sociable, recreational and competitive tennis environment, for adults and juniors of all abilities.  Club members enjoy all aspects of tennis including taking part in regular organised club sessions, social events, individual and group coaching, and actively competing in the Kent LTA League.   An overhead video of the village and tennis courts location is available by clicking here.

The club looks to offer something to every member, young and old and no matter at what level of ability.  Whether you are looking for competitive tennis, social tennis or you just enjoy the game to get fit, we hope to make you feel welcome.  The club actively supports the development of tennis for juniors and provides junior coaching programmes and junior events, in partnership with our LTA accredited Coaching providers.

The tennis courts are adjacent to the village hall and recreation ground.  The courts have a Matchplay XL carpet surface and are based in a rural setting overlooking farmland, a beech hedge surrounds two sides of the courts to help minimise wind effects.  Both courts are floodlit using environmentally-friendly LED technology and the clubhouse includes washroom facilities and is surrounded by a decked court viewing area.  The car park to the front of the clubhouse can accommodate approximately twelve vehicles with additional parking available at the adjacent Village Hall.

The Club is sponsored by Ashmax Associates, a local family-run business offering independent financial advice and services.  Martin Millen, a family member at the Club, is the principal advisor at Ashmax Associates and is keen to support the Club in building community-based activities including the sponsorship of future events and social activities.
