Welcome to Ryde Lawn

Following the announcement on 4 January of new national lockdown restrictions and advice from the LTA that all indoor and outdoor tennis facilities must close, RLTCC is now closed to all members with immediate effect. Please stay safe and we hope to see you all playing again as soon as possible. 

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.
