Tennis

 

Tennis is a vibrant part of the Ranelagh Club. Our tennis cabana and six floodlit mod grass courts, allow continuous play from day through to late evening all year round.  The tennis courts at the Club are available for all members to use.

 

There are active ladies, men's, mixed and junior tournaments that compete all year around.  However, if you would like to meet some new people, play some tennis, without the pressure of competition, come along to the Monday and Thursday morning social games and enjoy a hit in a friendly and relaxed environment.

New Short Sets Format

As a result of the recent survey and comments that have been received; where Clubs have been finding it difficult to field full 4 person teams, people are time poor and looking for something a bit different, the PTA have decided to trial a new format to be played on Wednesday mornings, in conjunction with their current format.

Please click on the links below for more information and entry forms. 

Entries Close 30th September, 2018. 

If you would like to get a team together or require further information please contact
