Since we introduced card payments to the club back at the beginning of 2020, it has been an increasingly popular option, with less and less cash passing through our till. The handling of cash is becoming even more difficult as the club's bank (HSBC) has taken the decision to close their staffed branch in Stafford this year. So we've decided that from 1st August we will be moving to a cashless bar & shop. We accept the majority of payment methods including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, JCB, UnionPay, Diners Club, Discover, Maestro, Visa Electron and V Pay, along with mobile payments like Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay. So hopefully everyone will have a form of payment which works for them. We'll also be offering the sale of 'gift' codes so that you can buy an amount of credit in advance if you wish.
With regard to visitor and match fees, some members are already choosing to pay via bank transfer to the club's account and this will continue to be an option. Alternatively, these can also be paid by card.
* The floodlight meters will continue to be coin operated.

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 several weekday evenings, and on Sunday morning. 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.
