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.

Social Tennis

We provide a full programme of social tennis for all members.

Tennis Ladders

Singles and doubles ladders offer opportunities for competitive social tennis through much of the year, apart from May through to October when Summer League matches are on. If you wish to take part, please contact the following organisers for more information and to be included. You can enter either ladder as an individual. Once set up, ladders are organised through whatsapp groups.

Singles – Bridget Longworth 07419 822972 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 Karen Walker 07779 076629 Played over a 3/4 week period. 4 players in a mixed group. They arrange to play together in one session 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.

Mix-in Club Sessions

These weekly sessions are open to all adult members who want to play social tennis and just turn up and play. They are especially helpful to new members and are a great way to get to know others.
