Isle of Wight Sports Club

The ‘Seaview Sports Club’ first open its doors in 1936 providing Tennis, Badminton and the first Squash Courts outside of London. In September 1998 Anne and Alan Blackburn purchased the sports club, by then known as the ‘Isle of Wight Sports Club’.


Over the next 16 years these facilities were available 7 days a week and were enjoyed to the full by many island residents and visitors to the island. However, in June 2016 the doors to Isle of Wight Sports Club were closed as Alan Blackburn wanted to retire.


Since October 2016, Anne Blackburn has re-opened the Tennis Court. And, subsequently, the Gymnasium (now located in the former Studio), Badminton and Squash Courts were also made available.


Social Play

The club’s outdoor tennis court is available by the hour on a pay and play basis. The ‘OLYMPUS’ playing surface offers excellent comfort underfoot and is a forgiving surface for players’ joints and tendons. The curled, dense pile provides a high degree of shock absorbency reducing stress to the body.



Ben Brading offers a range of coaching from the centre which you can book directly with him. Ben is highly qualified and has a wide range of experience.


Competitive Tennis

As the Isle of Wight Sports Club focuses on court hire, it is does not offer competitive tennis. If you’re looking for league play, there are a number of local club who do offer some competitive play.



While the club no longer offers membership, all facilities are available on a pay and play basis. Although, it is advisable to book in advance.
