Brief Club information

Court availability and priority of use
At Hexham Tennis Club, Tynedale we strive to have courts available for play for all members at all times. We are one of the few clubs in Northumberland to have more than 4 courts, so fortunately this is nearly always possible. However during the course of the week, some courts will be required for matches, coaching, match practice and the club social play sessions. However these sessions rarely take up all courts. At the height of the match season and only very occasionally you may have to wait for a court or be prepared to make up a doubles four instead of singles play.

The courts and pavilion are usually kept locked when not in use. When joining the Club you will be given details on how to access the courts and facilities.

Tennis balls
A supply of ex-match balls is available for use by members. However, it is advisable to bring some balls, just in case.

Club Sessions
Club social mixed tennis: Tuesday from 5.30pm and Saturday from 1.30pm for members of all standards except complete beginners.
Ladies morning: Friday from 9.45ish. Primarily ladies doubles social tennis. All standards from beginners upwards.

Tee-shirts
We now have for sale (£15) tee-shirts with the club logo in sizes S M L XL XXL.

Team tennis
If you are keen to participate in team tennis (doubles), please come along on the designated match practice nights or give the Men’s or Ladies’ captain a ring.

Floodlights and tokens
The floodlights can be used up to 10pm every night. Tokens for the floodlights which cost £2 for 30 minutes play per court must be purchased in advance of play as they are not available to purchase on site.

Coaching at Hexham Tennis Club
Hexham’s Head Coach is Tom Geary (LTA Level 3 qualified coach). Tom coaches players of all ages and abilities, both individually and in groups. For all coaching enquiries contact Tom.

We value your membership greatly. The subscriptions raised help us to maintain and develop the courts and club for the benefit of all members.
