Lymington - Tennis for All

Tennis for All – and right in the heart of Lymington!

Does the idea of playing tennis appeal?  Great exercise, satisfying because it requires skills which can be learned, meet others who love tennis too, enjoy watching tennis on TV and feel inspired...there are plenty of great reasons to play tennis, whatever your age or ability!

Lymington Tennis welcomes all who'd like to join in!


If you’ve recently moved to the Lymington area and love tennis, read on!

But maybe you haven’t played for years and feel rusty, or maybe you’re a complete beginner but you’ve been thinking for a while that you’d like to start playing tennis. 

Some of us remember having to take a test to be accepted for a tennis club in years gone by – and failing didn’t feel great!

No such worries need concern you if you live in Lymington and fancy playing lots of tennis or just occasionally, because Lymington Tennis welcomes all.  In fact to meet Lymington Tennis “acceptance” criteria it’s much more important that you’re friendly, and happy to play tennis with other tennis enthusiasts of all ages, shapes, sizes and ability levels. 

Directors and coaches of Lymington Tennis James and Adam set the scene

Lymington Tennis Club is run by Directors James Lilley and Adam Falla who are also the Head Coaches.  As soon as you meet either of them you’ll get the feeling for the club – they’re friendly, informal yet organised, lively, enthusiastic, welcoming!

The club is focused on providing a friendly environment in which to play and is very junior friendly.  There’s affordable coaching for all ages and standards, and ample opportunity for keen players to compete in mix in sessions, fun tournaments, LTA events and local leagues.

Convenient central location, great courts – and fabulous clubhouse!

Lymington Tennis Club is situated in the town’s sports ground - off Avenue Road if you’re driving, just a short and very pleasant walk from Lymington's high street behind St Thomas Church, and easily accessible by foot or bike from most parts of the town.

There are four tarmac courts which are kept in extremely good condition,  with floodlighting across all courts.   After many years based in a draughty portakabin, the brand new clubhouse was opened in May 2013 amidst much celebration.  The new clubhouse from its upstairs accommodation boasts great views of the tennis courts and the bowls club in the other direction, a lovely sunny balcony from which you can watch the play on all four courts, a TV lounge area, fully licensed bar and lots of opportunity to socialise.  Downstairs there are smart new, purpose built changing rooms. 

Tennis for juniors

One of Lymington Tennis Club’s key aims is to provide a friendly environment in which juniors can learn to play tennis and make new friends, and, if they really get the tennis bug, to then go on to great achievements in the wider world of tennis – who knows the next Andy Murray may come from Lymington!

 Affordable coaching is available for all ages and standards.  As your tennis improves there are many opportunities  for players to compete in mix in sessions, fun tournaments, LTA events and local leagues.

Tennis for Tots (from 3 years), Rascals, Blitz and Xtreme (up to 15 years) run after school on weekdays, at half term and in the holidays, with member and non-member places available.  (If you call in at around 5pm to Lymington Tennis you’ll find there’s a lot going on!)

Coaching for all at Lymington Tennis

The Coaching Programme has something for everyone from Minis, Juniors, Holiday courses, Adult beginners and Team players. The club also runs 3 very popular Cardio tennis sessions a week for people to exercise and play tennis to music!

And coaching by Lymington Tennis, further afield

The club also runs coaching programmes at 23 different venues across the New Forest; Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst Tennis Club and Walhampton School. Programmes vary at the different venues, but each has Mini Tennis groups, adult coaching and individual lessons.
