Raynes Park Residents' Lawn Tennis Club - April 2014

Raynes Park Residents LTC moved venue almost a year ago to the new premises in Meadow View Road, and what a year it has been! 

The move was a great success, improving court playing times and permitting more coaching and also allowed us to recruit more members now that we have 5 courts, including two floodlit courts for year-round play.  Despite our Name membership is open to all, not just if you happen to be a resident, and we welcome any potential new member young or old! 

At the Open Day last April we managed to sign up over 50 new members, of all ages and abilities. Along with current members they were then invited to join in the Tennis Circus on the Launch Day on 1st June, when Mayor Councillor Krystal Miller officially opened our new premises and MP Stephen Hammond joined in the fun to try out the new courts!


Following on from the Open Day and Launch we have since run another Tennis Circus with ex Davis Cup player Danny Sapsford. The Tennis Circus is quite a new initiative to bring master classes and exhibition matches by current and former Davis Cup and Fed Cup stars to local clubs in Surrey and London.  Danny is the driving force and since starting has been fortunate to secure funding which has benefited clubs like ours.                                                   

Together with Danny we have been able to offer fantastic coaching days and at the same time make some money for the club to improve other coaching areas. With the funds raised from the Tennis Circus the club set up Cardio Tennis sessions for members which have proved to be very popular on a Sunday lunch time and we are working with two local schools to introduce tennis to a wider, younger audience -  all for FREE! 


Another Tennis Circus day is planned for Sunday 27th April 2014 and coaching from the professionals will be on offer to members and prospective members for a small fee. If you are interested in joining the club or taking part in the next Tennis Circus and would like more information contact Nicky Hudson 07791 094870 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
