Social and Competitive Tennis
Medbourne Tennis Club offers a range of opportunities to play tennis, socially or competitively.
The courts can be booked for members individual use; there is a board outside the club house with court bookings, find a free slot and book yourself in. The website also has a court booking schedule for members to assess availability by viewing fixed sessions that are booked, such as coaching sessions and home league games in the summer months.
Please note that for 2018 there will be a league home match at the club virtually every Wednesday evening starting around 6.00pm from the beginning of May until beginning of July. All the courts will be used and so unavailable, so instead of playing why not come along and support your fellow members who are playing for the club.
There are two club mix in sessions for any member to come along and play mixed doubles.
09.00 - 11.00
Followed by tea and coffee in the clubhouse.
