Get fit, have fun and meet like-minded people.

The Tennis Section welcomes players of all ages and abilities, so why not pop along and give us a try?  There are four hard courts, playable throughout the year, two of which are floodlit.  We also offer excellent changing facilities, a bar, and a refurbished Club House.

Tennis Coach Paul Hope (LTA Grade 5) and his team joined us in February 2017.  Please click on the COACHING tab for more details.

The Club is affiliated to the Lawn Tennis Association and plays competitive matches in the Cambridgeshire and Norfolk & Suffolk Leagues.  Our men’s and mixed teams won their leagues in 2018.  We also enter teams into the LTA Team Tennis competitions and this year we were winners of the 18&Under and Men’s County Championships. Every year, we organise our own tournaments at both junior and senior levels.

New members can join at any time and will be given a warm welcome.  Courts are available for play from 7.30am to 10pm (floodlights cost extra) and there are five Club sessions a week when you can just turn up and play, and balls are provided by the Club.  For details of these sessions, click on the SOCIAL TENNIS tab.

What people say about us:

“It really is a club for a lifetime!  I first joined in the 1970s, played in the teams in the 80s, supported my children through the Club coaching programmes in the 90s and now play social tennis and give something back by serving on the committee.”  David Porter

“As a family we have been members of Risbygate tennis club in BSE for over a decade. I have been able to play several times in the American Tournament each spring. I have recently brought my two teenage sons along. We love the inclusive family atmosphere, where taking part and good sportsmanship are valued above all.”  Karen Soons
