Social Tennis and Events

SOCIAL TENNIS

New players are always welcome! Try out the club before joining by coming along to one of our social tennis sessions, detailed below, at which we mainly play doubles.

We offer a great opportunity to just come along and play social doubles! Social sessions are for club members only, but non-members are very welcome to play a couple of times before deciding about joining. No need to book, just come along and find us – see details below.
