North Finchley Ravens Lawn Tennis Club

Ravens Tennis Club - North Finchley - Friern Barnet

Ravens Tennis Club was established in 1932.  It is a very friendly, family oriented club located in Friary Road, in a private, green and tranquil setting in North Finchley, London close to Friary Park. We welcome everybody to our club and alongside our adult and junior tennis coaching programme we have an active social membership. Our adult and junior teams regularly compete in the LTA run summer and winter Mens, Ladies and Junior Middlesex leagues. We  have 4 macadam courts, 2 of which have floodlights and 4 mini tennis courts set aside for our junior members.

As of Summer 2024, we have introduced Pickleball to the club. We have opened 1 court on an existing tennis court and if popular we will open a 2nd Pickleball court.

Our new ‘Eco’ pavilion with an ‘Air Source’ heating system, has a kitchen, bar license and function room, and is available to local residents & members (at preferential rates) for hire on an occasional basis

Our members qualify to take part in the LTA Wimbledon annual ticket draw usually held at the club in May each year.

Our adult tennis social play, which is ‘turn up and mix in’ is on Wednesday mornings , Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons. This is open to all our adult members who enjoy tennis followed by either the opening of the bar  or tea and cakes.

In order to maintain good relations with our neighbours, there is no vehicle access for parking or drop off outside the club. The access way is private land that does not belong to the club and that is why there is no vehicle access for parking or drop-offs for members or guests - it has to be kept clear for residents’ use. Please park on Friary Road or surrounding streets. 

Pickleball at Ravens

What is Pickleball?

Pickleball is fun, social and friendly! The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a fast-paced, competitive game. Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the USA and is closely connected to Tennis.
