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.

As our membership is currently full for the season April 2021- March 2022 these social session are for members only.
