Our much loved ‘secret garden’ has everything you need for an enjoyable afternoon outdoors: grass tennis courts, croquet lawn; beautiful, well kept gardens; games and toys for children and children at heart!

It’s an oasis of quiet hidden among a city’s pavements; a very special place overlooking, arguably, one of the best views in Britain.

Our philosophy is simple…it’s not just about the tennis.

About Us

The club is managed by a committee and willing helpers from the membership on a purely voluntary basis.  Our only source of income is from our membership and visitor fees.   We deliberately keep these as low as we can but in return we do ask that our members help out in some way with the grounds, or maybe with the social events. The gardens are our greatest asset, and we hold members’ Gardening Days for a couple of hours on the first Saturday in the month. All the family is welcome to come along.


We host regular social events with some fundraising to support our vision for the club’s future. This includes costs of ongoing maintenance and improvements. We are currently planning a new clubhouse and are sourcing major funding to help with this project.

We send out regular monthly newsletters, and post details of upcoming events on the gates and our Facebook page.

We welcome members’ ideas for fundraising activities, and also all offers of help for these events. Please contact the Club Secretary.


New Clubhouse

Our philosophy…it’s not just about the tennis means that we’re committed to maintaining and improving our coveted spaces to ensure the community can continue to enjoy it for generations to come.

Our ambition to install a new clubhouse is finally becoming a reality!  Here are some images of the story so far.

A special thank you to everyone who has helped make this happen.

We still have a way to go, including installing a kitchen and adding other interior details.  If you would like to help out or make a donation please get in touch.
