Greenacre arguably have some of the best facilities in the county, with three outdoor artificial grass courts, which were refurbished and floodlit during December 2001, and four indoor courts which are very popular and are used throughout the year.

The surface of these courts is porous cushioned acrylic and one court is also lined for badminton. These courts are revolutionary and allow in natural light during the day as well as having openable sides to keep them cool in the summer.

Courts are bookable by the hour and may be booked in person or by phone up to 6 days in advance by members. Guests may book courts 3 days in advance providing they pay the appropriate fee at the time of booking.

Most of our competitive tennis is in the form of doubles play, though we also have a singles league and club championships.

 

Matches

We have a range of teams playing in both the local Newbury and District League and in the Berkshire County League. We also enter the National Club League with a Men’s team & a Veterans Men’s team.

The matches are played at weekends during our winter season and midweek evenings during the summer.

 

Junior Tennis Programme

Greenacre run an extensive and very popular junior tennis coaching programme, predominantly using our indoor tennis courts. Courses run each evening for groups of children from Tots to Teen Tennis and we hope that there is a time and a night to suit every child. Every Saturday morning there is a drop-in junior tennis session, 9am - 10am for 5 - 8 year olds. No need to book, just turn up and play!

For all tennis enquiries please speak with either our Rackets Administrator, Alison Lockyear or with one of the tennis coaching team.

 

Camps

During every holiday and half term Greenacre run junior tennis activity camps for players aged 5 – 16 years old.

These will include structured coaching and fun and games, with a tournament day on the last day with prizes and certificates.

Details of our junior tennis camps are available from reception shortly before each holiday.
