Tennis Club

 

Victoria Lawn Tennis Club, Street, welcomes players of all ages and abilities.

We have two new Astro Turf Courts and two hard courts which have been recently painted and refreshed. There are floodlights on all four courts, allowing for year round play.

As well as our own Tennis Pavilion next to the courts, with kitchen and toilets, we enjoy all the facilities of the Victoria Club, with changing rooms and showers, a lively bar, two lounge areas, pool table, skittle alley and function hall.

Membership fees may appear a little high at first glance but there are no further “court” fees. Balls and lights are provided for almost all club sessions with a minimal charge to those who attend. Finally there are usually good (if not new) balls available in boxes on the courts for private play.

Main club sessions are:

  • Ladies coaching - Mondays from 9.30am
  • Men’s night - Mondays 6pm 
  • Silver server session - Tuesdays from 9am 
  • Ladies night - Tuesdays 6pm (earlier in winter)
  • Club mixed night - Thursdays from 6pm 
  • Cardio Tennis - Friday 3.30pm
  • Club mixed weekend – Sundays from 9.00 am
  • Adult Beginners/Rusty Rackets Saturday 9.00-10.00 (From September '18)
  • Junior coaching Friday 6-7pm (TERM TIME)

As well as social and club tennis we compete in county summer and winter leagues with great success, running Men’s teams (A, B, and C), Women’s Teams (A and B), Mixed doubles and Vet’s teams.

We are lucky to have an outstanding professional coach, John Cooksley, who is available throughout the year for individual and group coaching for both juniors and seniors. He also runs our very popular ladies tennis session on a Monday morning.

The club is friendly and inclusive. Social events include club tournaments, quiz nights and a Christmas party. Members are able to opt in for Wimbledon tickets via the Lawn Tennis Association, with an annual draw for club members. 

If you’re interested in joining the club why not choose a session and come along for a game before you commit? Please call one of the contacts below and have a chat about sessions that might suit you. Alternatively you can join and just enjoy playing with other members whenever you want.
