Established in the 70s, Shadwell Tennis Club offers a warm welcoming and vibrant atmosphere to players of all standards. Our 2 all-weather tennis courts are located in the middle of a friendly quiet and safe neighbourhood close to Shadwell Primary School. Our club has a fantastic programme which provides a great tennis experience for those who want to learn to play better tennis; have fun; get fit or just to socialise. Our dedicated team of volunteers are constantly enhancing our programme and facilities for the enjoyment of our members whether new to tennis or returning to the sport.


Access to the Courts:

Our address is The Ginnel, rear of 153 Main Street, Shadwell, Leeds, LS17 8JG

The courts which are not visible from the road, are accessed through a gate in the high stone wall which runs along the ginnel. The ginnel starts at the bend next to 153 Main Street ( LS17 8JD) runs between Ash Hill Drive ( LS17 8JR ) and Church Farm Garth (LS17 8HD ) and contining through St Paul's Church yard. The ginnel is not shown on Google Maps! 

Our neighbours are very supportive and we ask all our visitors be considerate when parking. It is most convenient  to park along Ash Hill Drive as it is an open road and access the courts from that direction.
