How to find us
Caversham Park Tennis Club
200 Caversham Park Road
Caversham Park Tennis Club is adjacent to Clayfield Copse, off Caversham Park Road, on the outskirts of Reading. Boasting six floodlit porous macadam courts and a spacious purpose-built clubhouse, the club is registered with the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) and offers a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment for everyone to enjoy playing tennis.
The opportunity to play competitive tennis is a big feature of what we offer, but it is not the core philosophy of our club... we seek to provide a friendly and sociable tennis experience for people of all ages and abilities. We encourage our members to engage with one another in a social and competitive atmosphere and our aim is to foster a family-feel culture at the heart of everything we do.
Run by the members for the members, the club welcomes players of all standards from beginners to experienced competitors (and anyone in between). Families and children are very welcome. Diversity and inclusion are embedded in the club's culture. Racism, sexism, homophobia and transphobia are simply not tolerated. Although winning and losing is an integral part of playing sport, our philosophy at CPTC is that if everyone is included, then everyone wins! Respect is the cornerstone of the club - respect for ourselves guides our ethics, respect for others guides our conduct.
Our Safeguarding Policy strives to minimise risk, deliver a positive tennis experience for everyone and guarantee a prompt and appropriate response to all safeguarding concerns/disclosures. The Welfare Officer is Will Jackson (email: email@example.com).
The club provides FREE balls for use in club sessions and FREE floodlighting all year round up to 10:00pm. The clubhouse has ladies and gents toilets and changing rooms. There's a well-equipped kitchen providing FREE tea and coffee for members and guests.
Joining the club
We encourage people to try out our facilities before joining. A variety of membership options is available. Please take a look at the 'Join' page of this website or contact the club by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Or just pop along to the club for a chat with some of our members during one of our adult club sessions. These take place as follows:
The club's weekly programme includes five mix-in club sessions for adults (as detailed above) plus an extra session on Thursday evenings for improvers. There are also club sessions for mini and junior members throughout the summer (from May). We currently have adult (mens, ladies and mixed) and junior teams competing in the Berkshire leagues with a wide spread of league positions, ensuring competitive tennis for members of all standards. Match practice sessions take place on Monday evenings (men) and Friday evenings (women). There is an annual club tournament and we also run a singles box league throughout the year.
The club's Junior Organiser and the GDTennis coaching team provide excellent opportunities for juniors to enjoy and develop their tennis at the club. The programme includes club sessions for minis and juniors on Tuesdays throughout the summer months (apart from a break during the school summer holidays), singles box leagues, an annual tournament and a junior tennis squad representing the club in external competition.
Coaching by GDTennis
The Gary Drake Tennis coaching team, headed up by Steve Conroy, comprises two full-time coaches offering adult and junior individual and/or group lessons for all abilities.
The club offers a variety of social events such as fun tournaments, barbecues and quizzes. There is always something going on!
