Whats On

Walking Tennis

Wednesdays 10am - 12noon

Love tennis but looking for a gentler pace of play? Walking Tennis is safe, fun and inclusive and a fantastic way to stay active!

It’s a game that’s open to anyone - whether you’re a lifelong tennis player, a complete beginner or just need a bit more time to get into the swing of things, you can give the game a go in a supportive setting.

You can play tennis at any age and Walking Tennis offers an easy way to keep both body and mind active – while also enjoying the social side of being part of a tennis community.

Tipsy Tennis

Friday Nights 6 pm - 8pm (ish!)

A new initiative for this year is Friday night ‘tipsy tennis’. From 6-8 the courts will be reserved for members and guests to just turn up for a game. Visitors are also very welcome, but we'd ask them to pay the usual visitor fee if they want to play tennis. If you don't want to play just come along just for a drink and chat, and enjoy what we hope will be a good fun social evening.

It’s Bring Your Own at HPTC - so pick up your racquet, favourite tipple, and see you on Friday!

Ladies Tennis

Tuesday & Thursday 10am-12noon

Ladies of mixed abilities meet on Tuesday and Thursday mornings for fun and friendly tennis, with a cheerful tea and coffee break. We always look forward to meeting new ladies. 

Mens Tennis

Tuesday & Thursday 2pm-4pm

It would be lovely to welcome some new members to play men's social tennis on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons at 2pm with a cuppa thrown in!!
