Raynes Park Residents' Lawn Tennis Club is a small friendly club, which prides itself on a family atmosphere with quality courts. It caters for all standards of play and ages through a variety of sessions. During Club Sessions a "peg" system is used to encourage players to mix in, thus providing players with the ability to play people with different styles of play. Although the club name is "Raynes Park Residents' Lawn Tennis Club" this is an historic name, which does not mean that you need to be resident in Raynes Park to join.
The club currently has three men's, two ladies' and one mixed team playing in the winter and summer leagues. Regular coaching sessions are available for all players. There are various Club Sessions throughout the week, and we aim to cater for all ages and standards of play. All prospective Senior members are invited to try out one of our Club Sessions before joining, to familiarise themselves with our Club and our members, and you can watch a short video about the club on Facebook.
The club runs winter and summer tournaments using a variety of formats such as plate, handicap and doubles partners drawn from a hat. There is a popular mixed singles ladder that runs throughout the year. Friendly matches are occasionally arranged with other local clubs in order for the club members to experience the fun of playing unknown opponents. Social events are always encouraged; the committee loves to hear ideas for social events. All members are encouraged to be forthcoming with any ideas on this or any other matter.
There are five macadam hard courts available, which have excellent drainage. Tennis is played throughout the year and all five courts have floodlighting installed. An elected committee runs the Tennis club; this election of committee members is done every year at the AGM during March.
