Pavilion Open Afternoon - Sunday 28 May 2023

The Residents’ Pavilion at 129 Grand Drive SW20 9LY 

This coming May 2023, our Association will have been running the Residents’ Pavilion for ten years. 

Back in 2013, the Raynes Park Residents’ Lawn Tennis Club moved to its new premises in Meadowview Road and our Association took over the vacated premises at 129 Grand Drive, which is where the Tennis Club first started in 1947. 

Our Association decided to use some of its accumulated funds, in doing gradual improvements to the pavilion and grounds, making it more suitable for use by its members for parties, meetings, groups and clubs. So, on 1st May 2013, after some initial improvements, the premises at 129 Grand Drive were re-named “The Residents’ Pavilion” and opened for hire by our members. 

Over the last 10 years, we have made a number of improvements, including new furniture, installing double glazing, improving the heating and renovating the kitchen and toilets. Also, thanks to the National Lottery, we have step-free access and an accessible toilet. 

All this has been achieved through the efforts of a small group of volunteers, who manage the premises on behalf of our Association. 

We’re pleased to report that there is something going on at the Pavilion most days, with our regular weekly and monthly groups, covering a wide range of interests and activities. In order to cover our costs, we charge our members £12 per hour for regular hires and £18 per hour for single private bookings.

We’re also planning some 10th Anniversary celebrations for later this year, with an “Open Day” on Sunday 28 May 2023, 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Please come and see us.
