Playing Tennis at Wortham

General Play

There are lots of different opportunities to play at the club

It's simple to book a court using the club’s online booking system.  You can also download the ClubSpark Booker app onto your phone. Courts can be booked in half hour slots for up to two hours up to three weeks in advance.  

Access to the courts is via a code for the gate padlock - this is sent to you via an e-mail confirmation when you have booked a court. Padlock codes change from time to time so please always check the information on your court booking confirmation.

Floodlights are free for member use and the lights are operated from the club hut using a key that is kept in the key box. Floodlights switch off automatically at 9.50 and must be off by 10pm.

Members are welcome to bring guests to the Club for the payment of a £3 guest fee.  Members please note that any guest playing for more than three sessions in a season is requested to join the club. 

Club Kit

We have an excellent range of branded Club Kit available for adults and juniors. Your chance to both promote the club and look good when you're on court! To view the range see here.

Pub League

Pub League matches are held once a month in the winter season on a Friday evening - tennis with a pint afterwards.  The league is aimed at male players who, while not regular league team players, enjoy competitive tennis.

Box Leagues

If you enjoy competitive singles tennis we offer both a mens and ladies box league. Matches are played over a six week period.   To sign up or find out more then please click here

Competitive League Tennis

One of our key roles as a tennis club is to offer members the chance to play competitive league tennis. We enter teams at both junior and adult level into several local leagues.

Our junior teams are selected from those who take part in coaching sessions so please talk to our coaches if you would like to be involved. 

Adults are asked, on an annual basis, to express interest in league team play.  Our Club Team Captain works with team captains to select team squads.  Adult teams currently play in the Ipswich and Felixstowe Floodlit League, Norwich League and Ipswich and District League during the winter and the South Norfolk League and Norfolk and Suffolk League in summer. 

There are currently 22 adult teams.  If you are interested in playing for any of these teams,  please contact Club Captain John Seeley [email protected]

Players in team squads are selected on their abilty, their commitment to the team and ability to reflect Wortham in a postive way.  Team sqauds are also used as  to give stronger juniors the opportunity to take part in adult team matches.
