About us

Buxton Tennis Club is part of the Buxton Cricket, Bowls and Tennis club and the site on Park Road was first established by the Cricket Club in 1853. Major tennis tournaments were held in Buxton from 1883 and it was the venue for the All-England Ladies Doubles Tennis Championships until 1951. The current club is the proud heir of this tradition, providing a range of social and competitive tennis for all standards of player.

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.

Interested in joining us? If you already play tennis, why not come along to our club sessions on Saturday mornings, from 9.30 onwards. Non members are welcome to come twice without charge. Or come to our Monday evening sessions, starting at 6pm (these will continue throughout the year now that we have floodlight!). We also 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 have a range of coaching activities to suit everyone from beginners and people who haven't played for years to advanced junior and adult coaching and cardio-tennis. See coaching for details.

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