Welcome to the New Tennis Year and thank you to all the members who braved the winter cold and turned up to play.

The top 3 courts were re-laid some 3 years ago and continue to play extremely well and remain the most used. While we are not planning to re-lay the surface on the bottom courts in the immediate future, we have removed the moss that has recently grown during the damp winter and they remain fully playable.

Thank you to the many members who have contributed to the club’s well being by playing social tennis; inter club matches and supporting the bar. Congratulations ‘also to the following teams who won their divisions during the winter season:

  • Ladies (Kent League Div 5)
  • Ladies Vets (Kent League Div 3)
  • Mixed 3 (North Kent League Div 4)
  • Mens Vets 1 (Kent League Div 2)

Last year the club maintained the number of Wimbledon tickets (10 pairs) allocated as a result of those members who opted in to the LTA Wimbledon ballot before the cut-off date. We also had a further pair provided by the Kent LTA. So an enjoyable day out was had at Wimbledon for 11 members and their guests. Thanks to all members who opted in last year and who have opted in again this year.

We will also be sending out regular email reminders to club members regarding upcoming events, such as American and Mixed tournaments and we welcome your participation in these events.

The new changing rooms and refurbished Hall were completed at the beginning of April. These improvements to the facilities will make the whole club a more attractive venue for players and visitors.

Finally, we always welcome new members, regardless of playing standard, so please encourage your friends and colleagues to join us and help increase our membership.

Facilities for members are as follows:

  • Six all weather courts, (top three with floodlights) all with the same type of artificial grass which provides a comfortable and consistent playing surface
  • Regular ‘turn up and play’ club sessions where the emphasis is on friendly competition, with the added enjoyment of winding down with social drinks in the clubhouse bar
  • Internal club tournaments that enable club members to compete against each other in events such as our very popular American tournaments and the annual club tournament which takes place in June/July
  • Club representative matches in the Kent and North Kent leagues. As always we have entered a variety of mens, ladies and mixed teams to enable players to enjoy matches against other clubs
  • Coaching sessions, our qualified club coach (Jason Goatley) offers individual and group sessions via his company (Totally Tennis) and their coaching team
  • Social Events which enable club members and friends to get together off the courts and participate in enjoyable lunchtimes and evenings
  • The Clubhouse Bar remains central to all sections who share the grounds (rugby, cricket and badminton as well as our own tennis section) and offers terrestrial and Sky Sports channels available on 4 screens
