Lancaster Tennis Club
Lancaster Tennis Club is part of Lancaster Cricket & Sports Club. And so members have access to the main Clubhouse facilities whose excellent facilities are available to hire by members. Tennis members love the exciting and varied year round programme. So if you’re looking for more chances to play, learn or compete then Lancaster Tennis Club is the place for you!
There are club social tennis nights on Friday evenings and on Wednesday evenings. As well as daytime social tennis on Wednesday and Sunday mornings. Also adult members are welcome to play socially in their own time. When members play in their own time they are encouraged to use the online court booking system.
Since 2014 and the building of a disabled toilet, the club has been able to offer wheelchair tennis. Also thanks to a number of charitable companies, the club can offer free annual membership, subsidised coaching and tennis specific wheelchairs.
The Club has a contract with Edentennis through which Level 4 coach Eden Parkinson delivers adult coaching sessions during the summer months. Coaching is open to both members and non-members. Lancaster Tennis Club is committed to extending tennis playing and coaching opportunities to juniors from around the area.
There’s a range of match play on offer. From a Good Friday social tournament, which always concludes with a BBQ and prize giving. There is also an annual men’s and women’s singles competitions.
The Club has a very strong track record in all local leagues and is the most successful Tennis Club in the area. In recent years teams have won the Fylde Men’s Division 1, Lancaster Mixed Divisions 1 and 2, the Lancashire Small Clubs competition and Kendal Ladies Division 1. As well as many more! And as a result competitive players are always welcome at the club and in the teams!
New members are always welcome! As a way to encourage locals to join, there is an open day each year. This allows local residents to turn up, play some tennis, talk with members. Rackets are available on the day, if you don’t currently have one. In addition to a range of membership options, all of which are affordable, visitors are always welcome for a small fee.
A range of social events is organised by the Tennis Club and other sections of Lancaster Cricket and Sports Club. These include music, quizzes, poker nights and bonfire night. Members can also join the Club’s Quiz League team for autumn and winter quizzes on Monday nights.
