Greville Smyth Tennis Club

Social Tennis

The club holds occasional one-off social events (tournaments, nights out...) throughout the year, and notice of these is given on the home page.

Social tennis sessions

When you are a newcomer to the club, these sessions are the best opportunity to meet some other players and have a friendly game of doubles.

  • Wednesday mornings 10am to 12noon
  • Thursday evenings 6pm to dark (April-September)
  • Saturday afternoons 2:30pm to 4:30pm
  • Sunday mornings 11am to 1pm

These casual and friendly sessions are a good way to meet other members and play some relaxed social tennis. The club system, to avoid long waits, is to play five games (sudden death at deuce), sit out, mix in.

Competitive tennis matches

If you are ready to take it to the next level - and don't want a lie-in! - you may be interested in playing a full, competitive doubles match.

  • Sunday mornings 9am to 11am (max. 8 players)

The aim is to complete a 3-set match, or as much of one as you can in 2 hours. Constraints of court space and time necessitate rotation of players from week to week, but anyone who meets the minimum standard is welcome to join the pool. If you come along a bit early for the social session, you can see what the level is and then have a hit with some of the competitive players after 11am.
