Tennis



At Bexley we have eight tennis courts (five of which are floodlit), with three new artificial clay courts.

We pride ourselves on catering for all standards and ages of member. Whether you are an adult who hasn’t played tennis since school, a strong club or county player, or a parent with children you would like to see improve – we offer you a warm welcome.

Bexley is very pleased to accept new members. You can be any age and any standard – beginners are most welcome – all we ask is that you have a good time!

With around 400 members in total, there is tennis available through weekdays, evenings and weekends. There are separate weekly mix-ins, where members can come to play socially. There are coaching groups for adult beginners, improvers and team players. And many groups for juniors of all ages and standards.

Bexley has a large number of adult tennisteams, as well as junior teams.
