The Club runs teams in the Bucks LTA Shield, Aegon Team Tennis, Aylesbury & District and Thames Valley leagues.

During winter months, matches often take place on Saturday afternoons, Sunday afternoons and Tuesday evenings (all winter matches only use two courts).
The club runs team coaching sessions from time to time. These sessions are designed for match players and include various drills and tactics to improve your play.

The Annual Club Tournament is usually held in the summer months and is open to all members. The event culminates in a Club Finals Day, usually in September, combining serious tennis with a BBQ for players and spectators.

Other one-day tournaments are held throughout the year designed, for members to play and enjoy tennis but with a competitive edge.  The Mr & Mrs Competition ends the season on a lighter note.

Tournaments are also arranged for Junior members in different age groups.

We also run singles box leagues for adults and juniors at different times of the year.

Information on any of the club's tournaments is available from Mel Burn 07949 128195
