Twyford Tennis Club, Berkshire, is located in the heart of the village in King George V playing field, behind the village hall (Loddon Hall) and is easily accessible from Reading, Wargrave, Sonning and Hurst. The club caters for all ages and all standards. There are three floodlit tennis courts enabling play to continue throughout the year - and as a member you can use them for free!
A new club house arrived in 2005, the courts were re-surfaced in 2014, repainted in 2016 and we have flood lights on all three courts so that members can enjoy great facilities throughout the year, at this friendly, local club. There are lots of organised sessions throughout the week as well as plenty of free court time just to come along and play and we welcome new members at any time during the season.
As the standard is mixed, there's no need to feel daunted if you're new to the game or you haven't played for a while. We offer adult coaching on Tuesday and Wednesday nights as well as Saturday mornings so that you can gain some confidence and quickly start to join in on club sessions.
More experienced players will find plenty of challenges too. In addition to the Monday, Wednesday and Sunday morning plus Thursday evening club sessions, we have Mens, Ladies and Mixed teams entered in the Berkshire League, including Veterans. Social club tournaments and the annual club championships (Singles, Mixed and Doubles) offer plenty of opportunity for competitive play as well. Our Monday night match practice sessions, for team standard players, have increased in popularity and have proved invaluable for our teams in the league.
We welcome Juniors, of all ages, and offer coaching as well as tennis camps and fun tournaments, all organised by Gary Oates and the rest of our LTA qualified coaching team. A special programme of activities, including school holiday workshops and tournaments, provide ample opportunities for youngsters. Also Friday afternoons/evenings will be available for Junior Club night.
We are not as big as some Berkshire tennis clubs and believe in ‘tennis for everyone’ - we enjoy our social tennis as well as giving those with ability the chance to progress. The club aims to maintain its friendly atmosphere and provides family membership at a reduced rate. A search using 'Twyford Tennis' in Facebook usually brings back some members details.
