No, it’s fine to start  without, the club has a good selection. However, as your child’s skills develop, you may find it worthwhile purchasing one.

All coaches are CRB checked and Russell and Olly qualified first aiders. Secure and well maintained premises further help to keep the club safe whilst groups are kept small to ensure safety. However children remain the responsibility of their parents at all times.

There is an annual junior tournament, tennis leagues and weekly match play sessions. Junior teams in every age group compete in the Surrey leagues and RPLTC has hosted several junior tour county match play events.

From 5.00-6.15, the under 11s are encouraged to come down and enjoy a range of tennis activites coordinated by the Coaching Team. From 6.15 onwards, older children, under the coaching team’s guidance, can play matches and make up fours or arrange singles. A tuck shop runs at 6.15 and the bar is open for parents!
