Shotley & Benfieldside Tennis Club has 6 artificial grass all-weather courts, 3 of which are floodlit, offering all-year-round tennis for players of all abilities. Members have key access which allows free access to play at any time (subject to court availability, with coaching sessions and team matches having priority). Availability of courts can be checked at any time in the Fixtures section of our website. Provision of 6 courts generally ensures there is always a court available for casual play, and we do not, therefore, operate a booking system for court use.
The Club House
The well-equipped Clubhouse has Ladies and Gents changing rooms, showers and toilets, full disabled access and facilities, a baby-change station, a large and comfortable lounge area with TV, and a fully equipped kitchen with cooking as well as tea and coffee making facilities.
In addition there is a fully licenced bar offering a range of beers, lagers, wines and soft drinks and a pleasing opportunity to relax after your exertions on the tennis court.
The Clubhouse is the centre of a thriving social programme to accompany the tennis activity, with Quiz Nights, Music Nights, Craft Fairs, BBQ’s and other events for members to enjoy while helping to raise funds for the Club.
The Clubhouse is also available for private hire and regularly hosts fitness and exercise classes, charity events, community liaison meetings, etc as well as private parties and celebrations. Please contact us for more details.
