We are offering an open invitation for adult non members to play at ELTC on the first Sunday of each month (limited to one Sunday session per player). For only £5.00 you can join in and show off your skills! If you can already play competently and are interested in learning whether ELTC is the club for you, why not pop along one Sunday morning between 09:30 - 11:00hrs for a friendly game or two. No need to pre book, just turn up, introduce yourself and join in.
If you can't make it on a Sunday, feel free to come along to the club during any of the other adult social session times and let the members present know that you are interested in joining. We welcome new members so please don't be shy. Whilst we are active participants in the local leagues we pride ourselves on our thriving social tennis. At Elstree Lawn Tennis Club you never need pre-arrange a match again as there are always willing partners to get a game going.
Social tennis takes place throughout the year. The weekend sessions particularly are extremely popular and generally all courts are in use. Members simply turn up at any of the following sessions and meet others for a friendly game. During very busy sessions a "short set" policy is operated. (Details are posted in the Clubhouse.)
Monday mornings from 9:30 am
Thursday mornings from 9:30 am
Saturday afternoons 1 pm
Sunday mornings 9:30 am
U3A Tennis coaching and social play is on Monday mornings between 10.00am and noon, with one hour of coaching provided by Jay from 10.00am
For adults who would like to learn, improve or get back into the game.
Thursday evenings from 7pm with Jenny.
Thursday evenings 8.00pm - 9.00pm with Jay/Jenny. Doubles tactics and drills. Simply turn up and join in. No need to pre-book. Approx. £5 per member depending upon numbers.
Private lessons (indiviadual or small group) can be arranged directly with Jay.
Elstree currently enters four teams in the Watford & District Tennis League:
Men's A Team Watford & District Leauge
Mixed Team Watford & District Leauge
Mixed Team Kenton Winter League
Ladies' Herts Hot Rackets Team
Anyone interested in playing for any of the teams should contact Jill Ricks.
These are held throughout the year on Sundays or Bank Holiday Mondays and culminate either with one of Jill's delicious lunches or a cream tea. Now that all six courts are fully floodlit, evening American Tournaments are also held with supper in the Clubhouse after play has finished. These events are great fun and are usually fully subscribed.
Further dates are added during the year and members are notified by email and a notice in the Clubhouse.
Please contact Jill Ricks for further details.
This takes place each year from May – August/September culminating with a Finals Day and Barbeque. The event is open to all adults and covers the full range of singles and doubles events in all ages and gender categories. 2017 will see the introduction of a Fast Fours format with sudden death knockout on a single day with no rounds played beforehand.
As the title implies, this is session is not for the fainthearted and will get you sweating in no time! The idea is to get some exercise and make our hearts work a little bit harder than normal but the level of intensity at which you choose to participate is entirely up to you.
It is currently run by Jenny on Saturday mornings at 10am for £5.00. Her contact details 07855 237650.
