Shotley & Benfieldside Tennis Club has 6 artificial grass all-weather courts, including 1 indoor court and a further 3 external floodlit courts, offering all-year-round tennis for players of all abilities. Members have key access which allows free access to play on outside courts 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 Diary and Fixtures sections of our website. With 5 outdoor courts there is almost always a court available for casual play.
Our new indoor court is managed through a booking system for court use. Members have preferential access to the court up to two weeks in advance, and enjoy preferential rates too. Guests are also welcome to book up to one week in advance.
