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.

Adult 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.

  • Tuesday and Thursday evenings 5pm to dark (April-September)
  • Saturday afternoons 2pm until 5pm (all year)
  • 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 deuce, except for long deuce in fifth game

Social doubles tennis game

Sunday morning competitive adult doubles

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.

This is the only session other than team matches and team practice where there is a minimum standard. You should be around a level 4 or higher [see GSTC grading system] when playing doubles.

If you are interested in joining the pool of players for these sessions, please contact John on johnguilfoyle1[at]

Junior sessions

  • Mondays, Tuesdays & Wednesdays 4pm to 5pm

Please note if any of these sessions are not being used, or are only used on one court, the other court is still free to use, though priority remains for the specific sessions.
