Elstree Lawn Tennis Club is a very friendly, social club with a relaxed atmosphere. We welcome players of all age groups and abilities.

WELCOME!

We are probably the best value tennis club in the area, and pride ourselves with being a thriving village community. Elstree offers a full programme of events, both social and tennis related, and new members of all ages are always welcome. We currently run two teams in the Watford & District League, play in the Kenton Winter League and also compete in the Hertfordshire Hot Rackets (summer) League.  There are Men's, Women's and Mixed doubles matches.

Whether you are a junior, student or adult wanting to learn how to play tennis, a 'rusty' player or an experienced player looking for a new club, this site provides details about our facilities and how to join. Social Tennis sessions provide a nice environment to play with other members 4 times a week and our numerous Whatsapp groups provide a directory of like-minded members to arrange games to suit your ability and timetable.

Court availability

In order to be most successful in securing a court at any time, please arrange your private games throughout the day where possible. Members cannot book courts but you can view court bookings so you can estimate how busy the club is at any given time.  The booking function is only available to coaches and administrators. All other bookings will not be valid.

 

 

Balls

Please note that Wilson club balls should be returned to the clubhouse after play and emptied into the white basket in the hallway. These are free to use at the club and should not be taken home or kept solely for your own personal use. They remain the property of the club at all times. 

PLEASE DO NOT USE "V" BALLS FROM BALL MACHINE BASKETS FOR SOCIAL OR PRIVATE GAMES.

To ensure that you have a decent set of balls to play your games, we recommend that you always carry your own tube for when club balls have gone "missing" or have suffered from wet weather. 

Floodlights

As everyone is aware, the costs for electricity are eye-watering. At the moment we are keeping floodlight usage free to members. Understandably, this might have to change at some stage in the future.  If it does, we will of course inform you. In the meantime, please turn off the floodlights as soon as you have finished your game. Please do not leave this for someone else to do later. 

​​CAN ALL MEMBERS PLEASE CLEAR YOUR RUBBISH FROM THE COURTS WHEN YOU HAVE FINISHED PLAYING. THIS INCLUDES BANANA SKINS!

PLEASE ALSO ENSURE THAT ALL THE GATES ARE LOCKED - ESPECIALLY THE MAIN GATE. SECURITY IS EVERYONE'S RESPONSIBILITY.

DON'T FORGET TO WASH UP ANYTHING YOU USE IN THE CLUBHOUSE TOO.
