Following the Government’s announcement on 20th March, the Club has been closed to members and visitors until further notice in order to minimise the spread of Covid-19: coronavirus.

On 13th May, we reopened our outdoor tennis courts to members only, following strict government and LTA guidelines, providing singles play only and with social distancing in place.  It is fantastic to see play again on our world class grass courts and we look forward to opening up more facilities as and when further restrictions are lifted.

Our thoughts continue to be with all our members, course-users, visitors to the Nature Valley Classic and our stakeholders who are navigating these difficult times.  We express particular thanks to our members and those living in our local community who are working within the NHS and in other frontline services to combat coronavirus and save lives.

Clearly, this is a very challenging time for staff and members and we are committed to supporting one another through this unprecedented period in our history.


The Club is providing regular updates to members via email.  If you are a member and are not receiving these emails please contact Lucy Deacon.


Throughout the closure period, we are working hard to provide a range of fitness workouts and zoom classes, alongside tennis and squash challenges, to help members stay fit and well.  These include on-demand classes, free trials with Les Mills and  Details of all of these may be found in the members area of the website
