Welcome to Hildenborough Tennis Club

We are a members-only club with players ranging from pre-schoolers to seniors. Our membership is great value and we have three all-weather courts in match-play condition, with floodlighting available for winter and evening play. 
 
We have a simple on-line court booking system, regularly organised social games, and competitive match play with several teams - and we're always looking for new players!
 
We are constantly maintaining the courts to ensure that they are always in excellent condition and we encourage you to make use of our updated clubhouse whenever you come down to watch or play.
 
We offer discounted weekly coaching for junior players as well as for adult Beginners, Rusty Returners, Intermediate and Advanced players. All coaching sessions include balls and floodlighting and are a great way to improve and socialise at the same time!
 
We welcome players of all standards to our sociable and family-friendly club - see you on court!
