Social Tennis
We have three social tennis sessions both during the week and at weekends. These offer a range of opportunities and playing standards to suit our members.
  • Tuesday Social 7pm - 9pm, 3 courts available.  Free session.  Member-led social providing a great opportunity for those returning to the game.
  • Thursday Rusty Rackets 7pm - 9pm, 5 courts available.  Cost is £3.50 per session.  This session provides a great opportunity for those returning to the game, less experienced players and improvers who want a game of social tennis with a great group of people. The session is organised by Head Coach, Adam Bradshaw.
  • Saturday Social 2pm - 5pm, 6 courts available.  Free, member-led social session.  Players should be able to serve, volley and maintain a rally.  If you find the standard of this session too challenging, we recommended you try Rusty Rackets or Tuesday Social.
  • Sunday Social 2pm - 4pm , 3 courts available (courts 1-3, unless there is a team match or tournamnent scheduled in which case courts 3-5 will be used - see court schedule).  A free, member-led session open to all levels.
