FARNHAM COMMON TENNIS CLUB
7th June 2021
We are a successful and friendly tennis club in South Buckinghamshire, between Slough and Beaconsfield.
Farnham Common Tennis Club has two TigerTurf floodlit courts and four all-weather tennis courts. We have over 230 tennis members. We currently run many teams in Bucks leagues both summer and winter. There is plenty of recreational tennis for all ages and a club bar to refresh you after play. There is coaching for all ages and abilities. Membership is affordable and can include other sports and activity classes.
Not played tennis much?
Don't worry if you haven't played a lot or are rusty. There are various ways to get back into tennis, and one way is to come along to the club to try it out. Our coach offers courses to get you back into playing again in a fun way, and you don't have to be a member to start with.
Farnham Common Sports Club
As part of the larger Farnham Common Sports Club, we also offer exceptional social and changing facilities as well as the opportunity to join our other sports sections. There is also a modern Activities Room that runs fitness and lifestyle classes. Full details are accessed through the Farnham Common Sports Club home page.
