Writtle Tennis Club



Writtle Tennis is a small but thriving village club based in Paradise Road. A survey amongst members last year highlighted its friendliness towards new members as one of its major selling points. We have a qualified coach who runs group or one-on-one coaching and the courts are all newly re-surfaced.

In the summer there are club sessions on a Wednesday and Friday evening starting at around 8p.m. and usually going on until about 10p.m. (followed by a drink in the bar for some members!) and a Sunday morning from 10 a.m. until about 12.30-1pm.  In the winter the only difference is the Friday evening when this is only for pre-arranged doubles and a small charge is made for use of the floodlights.  All full members are welcome to the club sessions.  Mondays is also club night and open to peak and off-peak members. We are also now integrating our best Junior members into adult evenings to speed their development.

Other events that take place during the year are various American Tournaments where members and non-members are welcome to participate and this is a fun and enjoyable afternoon.  A club tournament and a handicap tournament take place during the summer over a few weeks culminating in a finals day where the lucky winners and runners up are presented with trophies and the winners have the honour of their names being inscribed on the board in the hut.  If you wish to enter these please fill in the form on the reverse of the membership form.

Any events arranged will be detailed on our newsletter which you will receive from time to time and keep an eye on the notice board. 

Teams of ladies/mens/mixed doubles/veterans are entered in various leagues during the winter and summer and if you wish to become a member of one of the teams please contact the secretary.  We must emphasise that this is definitely not for beginners but for our better players!  We also have a very talented and enthusiastic junior section which have a club morning on a Saturday and play matches in a league.
