Welcome to Walton Tennis Club

Corona Virus Lockdown 2

LAST UPDATED 5th NOVEMBER 2020

Regretfully, the government have confirmed that all tennis courts must close during the national lockdown.

We were hopeful that singles play, or play between members of the same household would be allowed to continue, and I know many of you wrote to our MP, and signed the Change.org petition which called for tennis to stay open in at least some form. Thank you all so much for this. Some of you have had a reply from Theo Clarke saying she has raised our concerns with the PM, but obviously all to no avail.

As a consequence we will be locking the courts - the Club must remain closed.

We will also be postponing the AGM until the New Year.

Those of you paying monthly , please continue to do so. As before we aim to take lost time into consideration for all members at a future time when we know the scale of it.

About Us

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.
