Long Crendon Tennis Club
Formed in 1982, Long Crendon Tennis Club was initially two macadam tennis courts. Both built on Parish Council land close to the village recreation ground. Floodlights, added a few years later, enable play to be extended to 10pm, in winter and summer alike. Since then the club has earned a reputation for a keen competitive spirit, matched by an equally spirited social calendar.
Many of members simply enjoy a friendly social game of tennis. The two club evenings on Tuesday and Thursday each week welcome all standards, whether novice, rusty or champion in the making.
In 1999 two committee members, started a highly successful junior coaching programme. This initiative hit top gear in 2004 with the arrival of current club coach Dan Anthony. Today, Dan coaches around 100 youngsters per week between the ages of 4 and 18. This year-round programme, enables all to learn basic tennis skills to junior tournament standard. Dan also offers adult tennis coaching on an individual or group basis for all ages.
Today, Long Crendon Tennis Club competes in both the Aylesbury and Oxfordshire leagues. Men’s, ladies’ and mixed teams all compete in various league divisions.
With very affordable membership rate and no joining fess, Long Crendon could be the right club for you. There are five different types of membership available, including adult, family, and junior.
Finally, the club’s two main courts were rebuild in 2015 and now play better in all conditions.
