Come and join us at Caversham Park Tennis Club!

At CPTC, we aim to deliver a positive and friendly tennis experience for everyone.

Organised social sessions, coaching and competitive tennis are all available. Beginners, 'rusty rackets', improvers and advanced players are all catered for.

Members can also make their own arrangements by booking courts online or via the ClubSpark Booker App. 

Welcome!

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.

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! 

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 Andrew Harland (email: [email protected]).
