Benson Tennis Club Welcome to

About the club

Due to the current conditions the courts can be only be used inline with the current LTA guidelines.  

Based on our discussions with Government and following the further easing of lockdown restrictions, the LTA has developed an updated set of practical guidelines for venues, coaches and players to follow that apply from 1 July (or later where indicated for specific measures) so that tennis can be played in England, where the local environment allows and in accordance with social distancing.

We know many players are itching to get back on court so the courts may be busy over the next couple of weeks. We do not have an on-line booking system as it has never been needed and we are a small club. Please be considerate of other players and limit your match to 5 games if there are people waiting to get on court. That way everyone will get to play. Currently we are reviewing if a court booking system is required - please contact us if you have a view on this 

See https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/bensontennisclub/CourtUse for details of when courts are being used for coaching or other activities.

We will review as needed but let's all be kind to each other and play some tennis!!!

Because tennis won't be the same for a while longer we have reduced the cost of membership for the year commencing May 2020 by 50%*. To apply for membership at this rate see https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/bensontennisclub/Membership/Join or contact James on Jamesbarter@btinternet.com.

Please make sure you have paid for this seasons membership before you play, and help us monitor that only current members are using the courts. A new court code will be sent out when you join. Also remember that paid-for coaching outside of the official NTA coaches are not allowed. See here for details.

Please remember to bring your own tennis balls along if you play, and remember the clubhouse is out of bounds (so no floodlit tennis is possible).
