Looking for a friendly Tennis Club?
Come and join our small, friendly tennis club in Shiplake Cross. We’re situated next to the Memorial Hall along Memorial Avenue, overlooking playing fields. We have three tarmac courts all with floodlights, a comfortable clubhouse and an enthusiastic and dedicated membership.
Our club coach, Chris Ovenden, runs a varied programme of coaching for both adults and juniors so even if you’ve never played before or need to brush up your skills he and his team are available to teach you.
We have ladies, mens and mixed teams in both the Berkshire and the Oxfordshire leagues for the competitive players. Our club is run by a Committee of volunteers who are approachable and dedicated – they run social events throughout the year including four club sessions each week to which all members are cordially invited.
So don’t delay, join today – Benefits of Membership:
