Resumption of outdoor tennis activity
At long last! Following the Government’s easing of restrictions, our courts are now open enabling recreational tennis to resume, including singles and doubles social play, 1:1 coaching and formally organised activity for groups. The rule of 6 still applies along with social distancing and frequent hand-sanitising. Please ensure you book a court first.

The Tennis Club is LTA affiliated with three fully floodlit hard courts plus ample parking, clubhouse and licensed bar for social events, all in an idyllic rural setting on the outskirts of Headcorn village. The courts are available to club members for play 7 days a week throughout the year.
The club provides for all standards and ages, with an established and successful junior coaching programme. Social tennis takes place on Tuesday and Friday evenings, being a popular and fun environment to play.
Men’s, Ladies and Mixed Teams take part in the Kent, Ashford and Maidstone Leagues, all year around.
We welcome all new members, individuals and families. (For details of membership subscriptions please go to the Membership page). Whether you are new to tennis, re-kindling an interest in the game or just looking for somewhere new to play, come along and gives us a try.
During the day the courts are generally available. Evenings, other than club nights, i.e. Tuesdays and Fridays, the courts are available for play apart from when matches are in progress when the single court is available. Saturday mornings are usually reserved for junior coaching. To check availability of courts please access the club’s booking system via the booking page or check the notice board where a list of match fixtures is on display.
Members can book courts for periods of up to 2 hours. On days/evenings when matches are in progress on Courts 2 and 3 the single court, Court 1, is usually available.
Club Nights on Tuesday and Friday evenings generally start at 8pm and are for adult members i.e. over 16 years of age except by invitation when over-14s may be given ‘privileged’ status.
