Welcome to Upton Victory Hall Lawn Tennis Club

Junior nights start Friday & group lessons Saturday morning
Mike the club coach is starting his junior nights this Friday (4th September) and the Junior lessons will resume on Saturday 5th September.

Good news regarding our mixed doubles teams & under 18 boys

We have 2 mixed teams and our 1st team are champions of Division 3 & will be promoted back to Div 2. Our second team finished 3rd in division 5 and is helped with our older junior members.

Paul, George and Peter won their division in the Cheshire Aegon U18 boys tournament.

Road to Wimbledon
George made it to the semi finals of the Cheshire U14 Road to Wimbledon Tournament which is a fantastic achievement when you consider he is a year younger than most of other boys in the tournament.

Summer junior tennis camps
Mike our coach is currently holding his Monday to Friday junior camps with the kids and so during the summer holidays we don't hold the Friday junior nights.

To Join Upton Tennis Club & why
We are looking for new members of any ability. If you just want to play tennis to keep fit, or play competitively we are the club for you. Tennis at Upton Victory Hall is an all year round sport due to our 4 all weather astroturf courts, which are a lot easier on the knees & back than say a tarmac court. And we have our 4 wonderfully cared for grass tennis courts.  Tennis may be the ideal sport for you as our club suits all abilities.

Please read on & below is how to become a member of the tennis club.

Friday is Junior night until 7.30pm, which is free for club members, which allows the children to play together under the supervision of the tennis coach, Mike. During the school summer holidays we have summer camps

At 7.30pm Friday, when the courts become available to all members again, Mike holds his cardio tennis class on the astro courts.

Saturdays activities start with the junior one hour group lessons, which are reduced for club members, start at 10am and go through to 2pm. And from 2pm we have social tennis on the grass & astro turf courts where all members are encouraged to play together. So even if you don't have a partner to play with we'll make you welcome and get you playing. Lack of ability is not a limitation to playing at Upton.

Saturday afternoon tea at 4pm - We serve a large range of sandwiches and home made cakes in the tennis pavillion. Tea & coffee comes in mugs or cups! 


Adults - Tuesdays and Thursdays 
  a) 2 mixed league teams (play every Tuesday)
  b) 2 club teams in the men's league (Sundays/ Wednesdays)
  c) ladies' league team (various days).

First adult match of the season will be held on Tuesday 28th April. 

Junior Tennis - Summer camp
Come  for 1 day or several days, please go to the  Coaching page and then scroll half way down to see the Holiday Camp table with the Summer camp details.

Tennis Club AGM
We held our 90th Tennis Club Annual General Meeting in the Tennis Pavillion on Monday 12th January (select Upton Tennis Club AGM) & thank you to all those who could make it.

Spring season & the tennis courts
We have now entered the tennis Spring season. During Spring & Summer subject to weather we have use of the 4 grass courts as well as the 4 Astroturf courts (Astro allows us to play through the winter).  If you would like to come & see our facilities on Saturday, please do and if you or your children would like to join, it's cheaper than you think.
Tennis club membership can be paid monthly by standing order.

If you've never hit a tennis ball in a game but would like to, or like a good competitive game, we are the club for you.

Despite being steeped in tradition and still having 4 high quality grass courts for play between April and September to complement our 4 all weather carpet courts (astroturf) and dedicated practice wall,  the club is a forward thinking club with a young and energetic committee and a dedicated and experienced club coach.
