We are a lively club situated on the outskirts of Swindon in a pleasant rural setting. We have a flourishing membership and are a focal point within the local community, maintaining active links with the local schools.
We have four well-maintained courts, two with floodlights; a full-time coach, club pavilion (pictured, below right), and lots of convenient free parking.
We are a ‘members only’ club, with an open policy on membership and we are keen to encourage people of all ages and standards of play.
We aim to attract both newcomers to the sport (adults and children), as well as more experienced players who may wish to compete in league fixtures.
Our fees are among the lowest in the county, which reflects our policy of being inclusive (please see Join Us).
We have Mens, Ladies and Mixed teams that play in both the summer and winter league fixtures of the Swindon & District LTA Leagues..
We hold regular adult club social play sessions throughout the Spring / Summer / Autumn months on Wednesday and Friday evenings ( 6-8 pm ) and Thursday and Sunday mornings (10 am-12 noon). Weather permitting we continue these sessions throughout the Winter months. We also have planned coaching sessions for adults and children (for full details please see Playing arrangements). Flood lighting is available and a FREE token system is available to use the lights.
Members of the public are welcome to use the courts on an ad hoc basis at a fee of £15/hour, although matches, club play, coaching and members' bookings take priority. To book, please contact the Club Secretary (see Contacts) or Membership Secretary,
( see contacts).
If you are interested in finding out more about our club, please come along to one of our club play sessions for a free ‘taster session’; or pop along on a Saturday morning to find out more about children’s coaching sessions.
