Appropriate sports clothing is expected to be worn as this will enable you to play to the best of your ability. It is recommended that you wear trainers specifically designed for tennis as this will help you to avoid injury and also ensure that the courts aren’t damaged. When playing on the hard courts please wear trainers suitable for this surface.
We operate a court booking system for members as well as Pay & Play (£10 per hour outside, £15 per hour in the bubble). Either use the Court Booking page above or download the Booker App. Club organised sessions and coaching are already booked. When booking a hard court you will be issued a pin code for access.
Club Sessions are for any member to turn up and play, to mix in with whoever else is there. We offer daytime sessions and also Club Nights on Tuesdays and Fridays. In the Summer we also have an Advanced & Intermediate Club Night on Tuesdays which starts at 8pm. Full details in the Court Timetable below.
The Club runs at least two Tournaments each year, an annual Open Tournament as well as the Harold Hope Stone Tournament which marks the opening of our grass courts. Monthly Junior Tournaments also take place.
Tennis Rungs is included in Adult Memberships, it is a singles based match App which allows you to challenge other members of a similar level to a match. Email Natalie if you would like to join.
Please see the Events page under Social. As a Club we believe that the social aspect of the Club is important to bring our members together, as well as help to raise money and maintain the facilities.
To participate in the annual Club Wimbledon Ticket Draw you must be a member of BSLTC, be a British Tennis Member and have opted-in on the LTA website.
Members may play with non-members, but we would ask you to pay the visitors fee of £5, this can be done on the Home Page via Paypal. Please note guests are limited to 3 visits per year.
There is currently no charge for the use of floodlights (cost are built into membership fees). The astro court floodlights are switched on in the cupboards on the path running alongside the lower courts. The hard court/bubble floodlights are switched on in the boxes by the entrance. If no-one is waiting for a court, members should switch off the lights when they have finished their match. The lights will automatically go off at around 10pm as this is a local requirement from the council. If they are not actually switched off at that time they will re-ignite in the afternoon and we will go on to a higher electricity tariff.
