Social and Competitive Tennis
There are many opportunities at RLTC for members to play both social and competitive tennis at a wide range of standards. As a minimum for most sessions, players must have the basic grasp of playing tennis, i.e. be able to serve, hit forehand and backhand and hold a short rally.
The sessions are for all standards unless otherwise stated. Saturday afternoon is for the lower teams and improver players. Sunday morning is for the higher teams and advanced players. If you're not sure which sessions are appropriate for you, take a look at our Which Session Is Right For Me? chart or contact the Ladies or Mens Captain on firstname.lastname@example.org and they will help you with this.
As our membership is currently full for the season April 2021- March 2022 these social session are for members only.

There are two sessions on a Wednesday morning - you can sign up for both if you want to play for the majority of the 3 hours. Often some people just want to play for part of the session which is why it has been split.
We will soon be introducing a Walking Tennis session. This will initially be led by one of the coaches. To find out more about Walking Tennis check out the Walking Tennis Website.
Please follow the links below to sign up for the social tennis sessions.
Social tennis has a very strong tradition at Roundhay Tennis Club. We have six very well attended sessions a week when you can play socially with other members.
If signing up for a social session members should make an effort to attend for the full timings of the session.
The format for social tennis is 8 games in a four then mix in with another court. As a court when you start game 8 if you call out 'Last Game' then anyone waiting can make their way to the court ready to mix in.
