About us

We are a small but lively tennis club in Buxton. The club has a proud history, with tennis having been played Buxton since 1853, but we're not just about our heritage, we are an active club with plenty of tennis played at every level, from beginners to the higher reaches of the Sheffield leagues.

The 3 all-weather courts are set in a beautiful location alongside the cricket ground and bowling green with open views to the south-west, and are within easy walking distance of Buxton Town Centre. All three courts are floodlit, thanks to a donation from Tarmac in 2015, so you can play in the evenings as well as in the day (and we play in almost all weathers as well -- club sessions take place unless the courts are actually iced over!).

Interested in joining us? If you already play tennis, why not come along to one of our club sessions. Non-members are welcome to come twice without charge. Club sessions run on Saturday mornings from 9.30 onwards and on Monday evenings from 6pm (these will continue throughout the year now that we have floodlights!).

We offer the chance to take part in competitive tennis in the Sheffield and District leagues, as well as just playing when you feel like it. We normally run coaching sessions for juniors and for adult beginners/returners, but unfortunately our coach for the last few years is unable to continue and so these sessions have been temporarily cancelled. We are actively looking for a new coach and hope to be able to resume these sessions soon.

The club calendar has full details of the various scheduled sessions--any time that is not booked on this calendar is free.
