Lockdown has necessitated many changes , but as we hopefully return to more normal times we need to reassess what members want and value from the club. So we'd like our members to take a few minutes to complete a questionnaire online. All data is collected anonomously and we would really value any comments you want to make. Click the link below to take part:
Following the easing of lockdown restrictions announced by the government this week, and after receiving further guidance from the LTA, we are please to announce that doubles play will be allowed from Monday 1st June. All other guidance and advice as listed below remains in place.
Obviously, each member will have their own attitude to risk, and those in a ‘vulnerable’ group are still advised by the government to remain at home.
As always, we will continue to monitor the latest advice, act accordingly and keep you updated via email and our website. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy some tennis after this enforced absence and stay safe.

We've been listening to feedback and understand that not all our members are in a position to organise their own games and perhaps don't have a regular playing partner. With our regular social mix-ins currently suspended, it makes it difficult for them to get a game. So we've decided to trial an organised members only session on Friday mornings from 9:30am - 11am. This is NOT a regular social and we're requiring that members book the session using the link provided below. This will ensure that the number of players turning up will not exceed our court capacity, so please don't arrive without a booking. Obviously the current social distancing rules, including bringing your own balls will apply.
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 recently repainted 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 (see our court timetable for details). 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 with FREE weekly team coaching sessions in the winter. Our club championship competition runs each summer and an open veterans competition runs in the winter.
Our thriving junior section of over 60 members has a supervised mix-in on a Friday evening and priority access at other set times. Competent junior members can be ‘promoted’ to allow them to play in senior mix-ins.
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.
