How to find us
Hook and Newnham Lawn Tennis Club
George V Playing Fields
FACILITIES: There are two all-weather tennis courts in excellent condition surrounded by a high net fence and situated in the quiet countryside of Hook Common. All subscriptions and fund raising are used to maintain the high standard of the courts. The bar at the Cricket Club Pavilion is available to tennis club members when open for cricket activities and we have access to the toilets throughout the year. Car parking is adjacent to the pavilion (WhatThreeWords location - hung.growth.nibbles).
CAN ANYONE JOIN? Everyone with some experience of playing tennis is welcome. You don’t have to be a match player. Age is no barrier as long as you have a certain level of fitness so that you can enjoy your time on the court. You will have the opportunity to play with all levels of ability during club sessions and also time to get to know other members.
WHEN CAN I PLAY? All members can use the courts to play with other members when they are not being used for matches. Club evenings are on Thursdays and also Sunday afternoons. During these sessions everyone mixes in and balls are provided. A committee member is always present to help with the organisation of these sessions.
PAY AS YOU PLAY: We are pleased to offer Pay As You Play. To start playing on our well maintained and secluded courts simply create an account and head to the Booking Section. Payment of £8 per court per hour is made online as part of the booking process.
CLUB ACTIVITIES: We have a hard working committee who set up a Club competition, usually in July/August which is followed by a BBQ or pub meal. We support the Hook Fun Run each year by providing marshalls.
We normally have an Open Day in May and we are always receptive to Members’ ideas. We are affiliated to the Lawn Tennis Association which gives access to Wimbledon tickets; the club gets a small allocation of tickets for Wimbledon and we conduct a draw among paid up members for these tickets.
BASINGSTOKE & DISTRICT LEAGUE: We are actively involved in the Basingstoke League and have a respectable record. If you would like to play league tennis, we are always looking for new members to play competitive tennis. We are also able to increase the number of teams entered into the league if we have more club members wanting to play..
