ELTC has a wealth of the highest quality playing surfaces with 15 full-size courts, 2 mini-courts and a practice wall. We have 4 different playing surfaces so you will be able to test your game on different surfaces and adapting your style accordingly. The indoor courts and floodlit clay courts allow you to play tennis at a time that is convenient for you.
Boasting 6 grass courts Our courts are maintained by our expert groundsman Will Leach and his team.
Developments on maintenance and improvements of these courts are always something we pride ourselves in to provide the ultimate grass courts experience in west London.
In 2017 we invested over £50,000 into these courts. Overseen by Queen's ex groundsman, we have installed an irrigation system and laser levelled the surface to create a perfectly flat surface. Coupled with specially modified grass seed from Queen's club, we have some of the best grass courts money can buy.
Our grass courts provide what may now be considered a unique playing experience due to most clubs now opting for all-weather only facilities. At ELTC we have managed to keep our lawn tennis roots whilst providing ample other court surfaces for our members. The atmosphere generated during the spring, summer and autumn months when grass courts are in use is something you will really enjoy and look forward to year after year.
These courts are used for our club tournament which (weather permitting) is a Lawn Tennis Tournament with the finals held in mid-July.
