What we offer

We welcome new members to the Club. You can join as a tennis member or a non-playing member.

We would encourage you to visit the Club to see our facilities; you can apply for membership while you are there. Come while the bar is open (see here for opening hours) or come to a social tennis session – Saturday afternoon is a good time. Or you can simply download and complete a membership form and return it to us.

TRIAL MEMBERSHIP OFFER – three months’ membership for just £40! If you are thinking of taking up tennis, or are a ‘rusty racquet’ returning to tennis, or are thinking of joining a new club, this could be for you. From now until the end of June you can join using this trial membership. We hope that you will like us enough to want to become a full member of the Club; if you do, the cost of your trial membership will be deducted from your subscription.

What people say about us

My husband and I played tennis but just as a holiday habit. I had played as a junior but was too nervous to join a tennis club as I thought everyone would be so much better and I would feel embarrassed.

We dared ourselves to try out the Downs LTC and I can only say it is one of the best things we have ever done.

The people were so kind, understanding and welcoming. We have made so many new friends, got fitter and enhanced our lives.

As our Club is affiliated to the LTA we play competitive Men’s, Ladies and Mixed Doubles matches with other clubs in the Surrey leagues, both in the summer and winter. The league arrangements mean that we always have good matches and I’ve particularly enjoyed meeting and playing other tennis enthusiasts from local clubs. We have quite a few teams at our Club and so it is easy for those who want to play competitively to join one.

I came back to tennis three years ago, not having played it for some time. I was pretty rusty, but soon rediscovered my pleasure in the game. I found the members of the Club really encouraging – and now I am playing for one of the teams!
