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 and they will help you with this.


The below Walking Tennis and Cardio Tennis sessions are open to both members and non-members. These should be booked in advance.

Club members playing social tennis

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.


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.



The timings for the sessions are as follows:

Monday 6:00pm - 8:30pm: All Standards Ladies Social 

Wednesday 9am - 12pm: All Standards Mixed Tennis 

Wednesday 6:00pm - 8:30pm: All Standards Mens Tennis

Friday 6:00pm - 8:30pm: All Standards Mixed Tennis

Saturday 2pm - 4:30pm: Lower Teams and Improver Tennis

Sunday 9am - 11:30am: Teams and Advanced Mixed Tennis

We also have a Team Policy. All players/captains must agree to this to play in the teams. Please view it here.
