While the weather may be already turning Autumnal, the tennis continues at RPRLTC! From 1st September we will be offering a special discounted price on membership for the remainder of the club year (31st March). Join us in September and you can take part in our Mixed Doubles Winter Handicap, and Doubles Plate tournaments, plus all the usual regular social sessions, coach-led social and our annual Christmas American tournament!
This coming August Bank Holiday Monday we will again be running a fun and social tournament from 2–6pm. This is open to players of all standards from both RPRLTC and Wilton LTC. The format will be the Wilton-take on an "American" tournament—a fun way to play doubles with a variety of different partners and opponents over the course of the afternoon.
There will also be a Charity Bake Sale and Raffle organised by one of our student members. Bring some cash for a donation to receive lots of tasty cake to keep you energised on court, and the chance to win some great prizes.
Please arrive at 1:30pm to enable the draw to be made in time for a 2pm start. It can be difficult to add late-comers once the draw is made. While we will try to accommodate everyone on the day, spaces are limited so please do sign up in the club house to secure your place.
After some close fought matches throughout the summer, the Club Championships culminates with Finals Day. Come and watch some great tennis, support your friends and relax with some drinks (BYO) and food. Social tennis sets will also be played on courts 4&5.

Now the World Cup and Wimbledon have concluded, there's no longer any exciting sport to tempt to you stay at home with the telly instead of getting out and on court for social tennis! As an added bonus, Saturday 28th July will also be our Summer Social Barbecue for all members and their guests. Barbecue items will be provided, please bring along a side, salad or cake if you are able. As usual, it is BYO drinks. 🍻🍷 Social tennis will start at 2pm and the barbecue will run all afternoon.
From 28th July and all through August, we will be running longer weekend social sessions with players from nearby Wilton LTC joining in from 3pm while their courts are refurbished. Since the barbecue is the first joint session with Wilton it should be a lovely afternoon of tennis and the chance to meet some new players. Please do come along and join in regardless of your playing standard.
We had a lovely time at our Open Day last weekend. It was great to see so many people enjoying the tennis coaching and social sets in the sunshine.
Don't worry if you missed out, bring your racquet along any dry Saturday or Sunday about 2pm and join us for some club social tennis! We will also be having a special social tennis and barbecue session on Saturday 28th July.

An American tournament is a fun way to play doubles with a variety of different partners and opponents over the course of an afternoon. Each player keeps their track of the number of individual games he or she has won in each set and the nominal winner is the person who has won the most games at the end of the day. It is a great introduction to social tennis for newcomers to the club, or those improvers who want to try out their new skills at a club session. For regular club players it is a fun alternative to the usual tennis format.
While we will try to accommodate everyone on the day, spaces are limited so please do sign up in the club house to secure your place.
Monday 7th May – 2pm start, arrive earlier to warm up.
If you opted-in to the LTA Club ballot then come along on Sunday 29th April to find out if you have won the chance to buy some great tickets. You do not need to be present to win but those winners in attendance will have first choice of the available tickets. Other winners will be contacted via email afterwards. The first name will be drawn from the hat at 4pm, all are welcome, and the Club will be laying on refreshments to make the afternoon a properly social occasion.
At 2pm on the same day, Senior Members are invited to play in a fun tournament. We will be using a new format called "Davis Cup" where two teams battle it out over the course of multiple matches. This format should provide an enjoyable afternoon for all standards of play, so please come along and have fun whether you are a relatively recent player who has never been to a Club Social, or someone who represents the Club in team matches.
