Jesmond Lawn Tennis Club
Jesmond Lawn Tennis Club is a small and friendly club located in the heart of Jesmond, just 5 minutes from Newcastle City Centre. The club was founded in 1883 and has a long and distinguished history which includes member Muriel Robb who won the Ladies Singles competition at Wimbledon in 1902.
The club offers tennis for all ages and all standards of play. There is adult social tennis on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. However, get there early – they’re always popular!
The club offers a range of both junior and adult coaching courses for all abilities. These courses normally take place in blocks of 5 or 6 weeks every school half-term and are also open to non-members.
There are also many opportunities to take part in competitive tennis for all standards. Several adult teams compete in the Northumberland and Durham leagues both in the summer and the winter.
Also, everyone is welcome to join in at the club’s championships each year.
With no joining fee or playing in tests, it’s easy to become a member of Jesmond Lawn Tennis Club. And if you would like to try before joining, then come to social play on a Saturday afternoon. When you’re ready there’s a number of memberships, which cater to a range of ages and requirements.
The clubhouse’s bar is open regularly and is a great spot to relax after a game with a drink.
