Welcome to Purley on Thames Tennis Club

Lockdown Two:

Although there seems approximately zero logic to this decision, the government have decreed that no tennis at all is being permitted during the national lockdown commencing 5th November 2020. Despite the LTA having lobbied hard against this decision. Our courts are therefore temporarily closed. So the highlighted text below does not apply, but will hopefully be reinstated when the govt sees some sense.

Coronavirus arrangements: None of us want to catch or pass on Covid 19, which remains a killer disease. So whilst the courts are now open, strict protocols are in place to help all players remain safe. Strict social distancing (1 metre currently) must be preserved whilst on and off court (unless you are playing with members of your own household). Particular care should be taken at the gate, which must be kept clear. All players need to wash their hands with soap or use an alcohol gel before entering the courts, and when departing. Courts outside club sessions must be booked before use - contact the club chairman Colin who is kindly maintaining a booking system for us, please text your requests to him on 07917 453187. 

We are a small friendly club with three newly resurfaced courts looking northwards over the Thames Valley in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The club is affiliated to the LTA and as a result all activities run as club activities eg the regular club sessions see below are covered by the public liability insurance of the LTA.

One court is available for public use outside of all club sessions and matches - this is subject to payment of £5 per hour per court.  All members wear coloured shoe tags, so anyone not wearing our shoe tags must pay for using the courts.


Matches are played throughout the year, in the Berkshire and Newbury leagues. We have Mens, Ladies and Mixed teams, and a significant proportion of the membership get involved in matches at one level or another. Age is no barrier, that's for sure.
