OPEN AGAIN! It’s been a long time but the club is now open again and it is great to see people out playing tennis and croquet in the sunshine. Please remember however that there are still restrictions in place. Based on current guidelines we are now able to offer social doubles/singles for both croquet and tennis together with adult and junior group tennis coaching organised under LTA guidelines. We are also able to resume social mix-ins for both tennis and croquet. Remember however that outdoor activities are still restricted to groups of at most 30. As the rule of 6 still applies indoors, the club have decided that the clubhouse and summerhouse will remain closed for the time being. All tennis courts and croquet lawns must be booked in advance. As before, tennis courts can be booked through Clubspark here. Booking of croquet lawns is moving to a new system here – all regular croquet players should already have received information and login details and tennis players who wish to book croquet lawns should contact Pam Sim or Roy Tillcock.

Ryde Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club provides excellent year-round facilities for all levels of tennis and croquet.
There are eight tennis courts, six of which are astroturf and two are grass. Croquet is played on four full sized lawns from April to November and, in the winter, the two grass tennis courts are set out for croquet.
Open & Club tournaments are run for both tennis and croquet, and teams are entered in a number of leagues, thus providing sporting opportunities for all ages & abilities.
Our clubhouse has recently been extended and modernised with a new members’ bar and kitchen enabling the clubhouse to be used throughout the year for chess, bridge and other social activities to take place. The club also has its own car park.
Ryde Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club is run on a voluntary basis, by the members for the members, so all are expected to help in whatever way they can. Non-members are welcome to use the facilities, subject to availability, on payment of the appropriate non-member fees.
