How to find us
Stocksbridge Tennis Club
We are OPEN under the LTA tennis 'Managed Play' phase.
This enables us to enjoy playing tennis here at Stocksbridge provided we stick to these COVID-19 protocols - last updated 13th September 2020 to incorporate LTA advice from 14th September for the meet up in groups of no more than SIX people law for England.
Full LTA advice in consultation with current government policy regarding the Covid-19 pandemic is updated here as circumstances change.

Welcome to our friendly community tennis club
Stocksbridge Tennis Club encourages all ages and abilities to play tennis for fun, exercise, health, community involvement and personal success.
The Club is a non-profit making, community sports club (CASC) run entirely by enthusiastic volunteers offering beginners and experienced players of all ages and abilities the chance to play tennis, locally and affordably.
With more than 170 members we are small enough to be friendly, yet large enough to offer range coaching, social and league tennis. Should you wish to join as a member, take a look at our remarkably low fees that allow you to book courts and play all for FREE – our club volunteers work hard to run the club to keep prices affordable!
‘Places-to-Play’ scheme: This option for non-members to join a group session for a small fee is closed until further notice. However, to help you get you started, we have very low membership fees and a practise wall. Our Head Coach Ryan is also running private lessons. As soon as you decide you feel confident enough we will look to match you up with other players to practise with and play against. Alternatively you may want to join with a friend or family member.
Our facilities include four floodlit all weather open texture porous Macadam courts and a comfortable (when allowed to be opened up again) clubhouse.
The club caters for a wide range of standards and abilities from beginners to Division 1 players. Prior to shut down we were very active in men's, women's and mixed summer and winter leagues in Sheffield in a number of divisions to suit everyone.
If you would like to know more about the club please feel free to get in touch with our Chair Graham by email at [email protected] or with Claire (Membership and Coaching) on 07577040409 - outside school hours please. We look forward to hearing from you.
The Club is an independent section within the Stocksbridge Works Sports & Social Club (SWSSC). As such, the object of the Tennis Club is to provide facilities for and promote participation for the whole community in the sport of tennis.
Under our LTA insurance terms, our courts are not available for hire to the general public. However, our membership fees are so competitive compared to short term court hire at other local facilities - why not join us anyway?
The new membership packages are available to be applied for online. Please go to the Membership page to apply or click on the green subheading above. Applying online automatically links you to the ClubSpark system used by the Stocksbridge Tennis Club and allow for you to book courts and update your own personal details. All memberships are being handled online and a contactable email address ia required.
Those new members (who joined before lockdown and paid through to 31 April 2021) have the choice of cancelling their membership along with a full refund or retaining their membership, in which case will receive the difference between their original package cost and the new reduced membership fees as soon as they can provide account details for a BACS transfer.
Some sad news about former LTA President, Cathie Sabin, a lovely lady who recognised the efforts our little club was making, personally visited us and pushed for the grant that provided our floodlights. She was a real champion of grass roots tennis and very supportive of volunteers.
