Tennis

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.
Members can also have individual coaching. (See Book a Court and Coaching)

All players should arrange their own tennis games. Please try to maintain social distancing and avoid players mixing between courts during play.
Whilst there are no organised group sessions until restrictions allow, singles, doubles and mixed ladders are operating. To be included, contact
Singles – Mark Ashman mark@hill-fort.co.uk
Doubles – Graham Brown grahamb1969@yahoo.co.uk
Mixed – George Simpson georgesimpsonmusic@gmail.com
The clubhouse is open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 5pm and from 12 noon at the weekends. Toilets are available throughout the day but players need to bring their own drinks. Please practise good hand hygiene and social distancing and follow the advice on notices.

Club Night Tournaments

All Club activities are suspended until Covid restrictions can be lifted. Future tennis programmes will be announced as soon as possible.

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!)
