Elmwood Lawn Tennis Club
Elmwood Lawn Tennis Club was founded in 1922-3 on the ground at the end of Elmwood Road, Mitcham. When in 1936 Sir Isaac Wilson, the land’s owner decided to build Cumberland House, Elmwood received notice to vacate. The Club bought and equipped the present ground and opened for play in 1937. Play carried on through the War in spite of the raids.
Over the years, the Club has had to find its own finances, and consequently the members have had to do a considerable amount of work themselves. Perhaps this has built up the very good social side which has been carried on all through and has never been better than today.
Elmwood Tennis Club welcomes new members to their small friendly club set in a secluded and private setting. Ideal for families and players of any standard.
While members meet regularly to play tennis, there is plenty of court time available for you for to use for your own games. So whether you’re looking to stay active or meet new people, the choice is yours!
The club has an PTR qualified coach, who offers lessons to beginners and intermediate players. Coaching sessions are open to both members and non-members.
The club competes in the LTA Surrey clubs league and as a result the club is always on the look out for new competitive players to join a team. Also an internal Singles and Doubles tournament takes place once a year in the late summer.
Elmwood Lawn Tennis Club offers a large range of memberships to suit families and individuals. There are no joining fees and so joining is simple.
