Get Fit, Meet Friends, Have Fun!

Tennis@Risbygate Sports Club

We are a very friendly, welcoming tennis club and tennis is a great way to meet people and get fit while having fun, so why not pop along and give us a try?

The Tennis Section welcomes players of all ages and abilities. 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.

The Club is affiliated to the LTA and plays competitive matches in the Cambridgeshire and Norfolk & Suffolk Leagues. We also enter teams into the LTA Team Tennis competitions (now renamed National Leagues). For full details, please click on the TEAM TENNIS tab.

Every year, we organise our own tournaments at both junior and senior levels, and the Club hosts monthly junior LTA tournaments too.

New members can join at any time and will be given a warm welcome (75% discount for winter membership!) Courts are available for play from 8.00am to 10pm (floodlights cost extra) and there are six 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.

For details of membership fees and to download an application form, please click on MEMBERSHIP from the main menu. For more details about the Tennis Section click on the INFORMATION tab above.

“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.”
