How to find us
Stocksbridge Tennis Club
Linden Crescent, Stocksbridge
Annual Membership Fees for May 2022 - April 2023 (inclusive). These fees include all your tennis activities except for floodlights, interclub matches and formal coaching. Club run social tennis sessions and court booking with other members are FREE.
For those players who are thinking of joining on their own or WANT TO MEET OTHERS TO PLAY and would like to widen their circle of contacts, we have several WhatsApp groups to choose from to meet other players to suit you.
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 around 120 members we are a small friendly, informal community club, yet large enough to offer a range of coaching, social and league tennis opportunities. 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!
Our facilities include four floodlit all weather open texture porous Macadam courts and a comfortable clubhouse, allowing us to continue to play all year round.
The club caters for a wide range of standards and abilities from beginners to Division 1 players. We have entered NINETEEN TEAMS teams this year into the Sheffield and District and other local leagues, in a number of divisions on different days to suit everyone. We rotate players in squads so every player who wants to take part, gets the opportunity to do so.
Under our LTA insurance terms, our courts are not available for public hire, however our membership fees are so competitive compared to short term court hire at other local facilities - why not join us anyway? To help you get started we have free social tennis several times a week at different levels (including free club run starter sessions for beginners/improvers) and a practise wall. Our club has a traditon of developing our own players from scratch with a great bunch of friendly, inclusive members, ready to welcome and help you. From day one - or 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. We have a number of WhatsApp groups to suit different players to enable people to meet others for a game of tennis. Alternatively you may want to join with a friend or family member. Our Head Coach Ryan offers some private lessons.
The LTA ‘Places-to-Play’ scheme for non-members to pay-and-play is closed until further notice but you can instead initially access the courts and club run sessions through our free 'OPEN DAY' visits programme whilst you decide whether our community club suits 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, including free use of the courts by local schools during the school day.
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) on 07577040409 - outside school hours please. We look forward to hearing from you.
