Tennis has resumed at Caversham Park Tennis Club , but the ball is in your court!...
During these difficult and stressful times, we need to be united in our efforts to ensure everyone's health and wellbeing. So we're all having to adhere to unusually strict rules... but please bear in mind that it's also really important to be patient and kind to one another. Thank you so much for your understanding.
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 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.
Run by the members for the members, the club caters for players of all standards - those looking to enjoy friendly social tennis as well as those interested in serious competitive match play.
Tennis at CPTC is diverse and inclusive. In fact, diversity and inclusion are embedded in the club's culture. We are committed to prioritising the well-being of all children and adults at risk, promoting safeguarding in our club at all times, including all programmes and events we run. Our Safeguarding Policy strives to minimise risk, deliver a positive tennis experience for everyone and respond appropriately to all safeguarding concerns/disclosures.
