WTSC - Tennis

You can view all our tennis events this year here: View Events

 

Tennis is a very sociable part of the club with two evening tournaments per year. Most years, we have the privilege of playing on grass at Spencer Park Lawn Tennis Club in Earlsfield in July and under floodlights at Camber Tennis Club in East Dulwich in September.

 

The format is usually a fairly relaxed series of doubles matches with a fiercely competitive edge!  The overall winner of both tournaments will win the Deinhardt trophy. For a small fee you can enjoy a fun evening of tennis followed by a delicious supper and fine wine (provided by all!). This is an excellent opportunity to meet other members over a few drinks after a few friendly rallies!

 

If you are a member of a tennis club and would like to arrange a sociable fixture, please let the Tennis Secretary know as we are always looking for other events.

 

WTSC - Real Tennis

A Real Tennis Tournament takes place in December and caters for all standards from beginner to World Champion (who did play one year!).

Other friendly matches take place at Lords, Queens, Hendon and other venues on an impromptu basis.
