Play at Hamilton
Hamilton Tennis Club has excellent facilities and provides opportunities for tennis at all levels. Courts are open all year round from 8am and are free for members to play on when not required for club sessions. Courts must be booked in advance using our ClubSpark booking system. Courts 5 and 6 are available for non-members to book online through ClubSpark Pay and Play and members may play with non-members on any hard court.
We provide a full programme of social tennis for all members.
Singles and doubles ladders are now operating, offering opportunities for competitive social tennis. If you wish to take part, please contact the following organisers for more information and to be included:
Singles – Mark Ashman email@example.com – Players are arranged in groups of 5 or 6 by ability. They arrange to play everyone in their group over a set period. Winners move up and losers go down to another group at the end of the period (approx 6 weeks).
Doubles – Graham Brown firstname.lastname@example.org – Played over a 3 week period. 4 players in a mixed group. They arrange to play together at their convenience. 3 doubles sets are played so that each player plays with a different partner during the session. Sets are played to 4 with a tie-break at 3 all. Winners move up, losers move down in the next period.

Club Night Tournaments
Tournament Nights are once a month, on the second TUESDAY of the month. On the first of the month an entry sheet will be placed on the club notice board. Please put your name down if you want to join in or text Margaret who will put it down for you. Entry £1.
This is a social event and played for prizes on the night. We will not be organising food (if you want food please order your own beforehand.) It would be nice if people did stay for the prize giving and a drink.
These tournaments are open to all Senior Tennis Members and Intermediates and are based on American style, which rotates players so that you are with different partners during the evening. It would be good to see new members join in.
We like to start at 6.30 prompt so please arrive earlier to pay and find your first partner. We normally finish about 9pm.
If for some reason you are unable to turn up on the night could you please try to find a replacement or phone Margaret Shufflebotham who will do the same. We do need 24 people to make the tournament run smoothly, so if you could be a reserve player, please leave your name and phone number on the sheet. (You may be called at the last minute!)
