Welcome

Originally a tennis and croquet club dating back to the mid 1870's, the Tennis Section has always played an integral part of day to day life at Rawdon Golf & Lawn Tennis Club and the club prides itself on its welcoming nature, appealing to players of all ages and abilities.

Our facilities include three all weather floodlit courts and four grass courts, allowing both all year round play and the opportunity to experience tennis on its original surface in the summer months.

Uniquely the clubhouse is shared with the Golf Section which allows members to benefit from many of its facilities including an excellent choice of food and beverages served daily. These can be enjoyed in the comfortable surroundings of the Buckstone Lounge which is also home to many of the functions from our busy social calendar.

On a representative basis the tennis section enter a number of teams at national, regional, and local level. The club also holds its own tournaments as well as offering ladder and box leagues for single play. Time is also set aside for social and cardio tennis. So whether you are 8 or 80, a complete beginner or the future Andrew Murray – all persons are welcome to join!
