Please advertise this to your friends and neighbours. There will be a raffle (prize donations very gratefully received) and the top scoring visitor in the tournament can win 3 months free play for the summer!

Club Championships 2022
Posted 11th May 2022
The latest club championship results and fixtures have been updated in our downloads section. A reminder that first round matches MUST be played by the end of May.
A gentle reminder for those members on annual membership packages that subscriptions for the 2022/23 season are due on 1st June. At the AGM in November it was agreed that we would put the subs up by a modest 2%. The new rates are shown below.
Please pay by bank transfer if possible referencing your name and subscription category, and email Carol Stanley when you have paid. OR send a cheque payable to Walton Tennis Club to Carol Stanley, 4 Cheltenham Dr, Stafford ST17 4TX. Also let Carol know of any changes to your details (address, phone number, email etc.)
Those members who are on monthly packages (paying by direct debit) need not do anything, as the new price will be reflected automatically commencing with your June payment.
We have several events coming up which may affect court booking availability. Apologies for any inconvenience.
She Rally free coaching Sundays 1-2pm for 4 weeks
These will start on 1st May and finish on 22nd May to try and encourage new ladies into tennis, but Rusty Racquet sessions will continue in this slot beyond 22nd May.
Walton Tennis Club is situated in a rural location on the outskirts of Stafford. We take pride in being a friendly club which welcomes new or experienced players of all abilities, offering opportunities for social tennis, league tennis and family play. We have four hard courts, and play all the year round, until 10 pm under floodlights. We have around 140 senior playing members and run social mix-ins at various times throughout the week (check our court booking page for the current schedule of mix-in and social tennis sessions). These mix-ins are a chance for members to meet other players and guarantee newcomers a game. For more competitive players, we run several teams in the local Staffordshire tennis league. Our club championship competition runs each summer and an open veterans competition runs in the winter.
Our club coach, Chris Proud, runs coaching programmes for juniors and adults and is available for private individual or group sessions and is there to meet new members at the Thursday night mix-in. The licensed bar is open on mix-in nights and we also hold social events in the clubhouse.
We have a patio and social area, with outdoor table tennis table, picnic tables and benches and this adds an extra dimension to the atmosphere at the club.
