About Spelthorne Community Tennis Centre

Our Story

Spelthorne Community Tennis Centre started being built in 2015.

Steve took the site over which had no building or floodlights. Over £250k later we have a facility to be proud of, an amazing cafe and good quality floodlit courts. His vision has been to provide a facility where everyone is welcome without the stuffy and restrictive approach of a traditional tennis club.

The centre has encouraged lots of people playing tennis, we have also had some results winning county divisions. We were No.1 in England in the LTA Highland Spring Mini Tennis participation. Steve has also been awarded the 2019 Spelthorne Contribution to Sport. Our coaching philosophy is really simple, we want tennis to become everyones lifetime sport. Our job is to make sure everyone develops all the skills required to really enjoy playing.
