We can now announce that it is possible to book our courts under the Lawn Tennis Association’s LTA Rally scheme. We play at St.Paul’s school in Barnes on six excellent all-weather carpet courts in a peaceful and pleasant environment by the river Thames. Just click here and change the day to a Saturday and the time to between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. During the present COVID emergency you will receive a Google invitation on which you must click ‘Yes’ to declare that you are COVID-free before midday on the Friday before you wish to play.
After eleven months of total closure Hammersmith Bridge is now open to walkers and cyclists. If you have been considering trying out our excellent all-weather carpet courts in the peaceful and pleasant surroundings of St.Paul’s school in Barnes but were stuck on the wrong side of the Thames now’s the time to come on over and try us out.
We would like to let you know about a special event that we are holding on Saturday 17th. July at 11 a.m. Sophie Cockell, L.T.A. coach, consultant and author will hold a workshop, which is free, for women and girls over 12 years of age as part of the SheRallies initiative. SheRallies was designed by Judy Murray to close the gender gap in tennis by giving club members the skills and ideas to deliver starter training and fun competition to girls and women.

There is still a significant gender gap in terms of players and coaches at all levels of the game. By rallying together, we can create opportunities in tennis from the grassroots up. Whether you’re an existing tennis coach, teacher, parent, student, youth worker, brownie leader or an enthusiastic club member, I have designed 4 courses as part of She Rallies, supported by The LTA, which will give you the skills and ideas to deliver starter training and fun competition to girls and women in your community. If we rally together – pun intended – we will make a difference.
Mixed Doubles will be held on a round-robin basis. Registration is at 10.15 a.m. and play starts at 11.

Thameside Tennis held a successful American tournament and tea last Saturday. It was very encouraging to see a large turn-out at our first event since lockdown and new and old members mixing and meeting each other due to the ‘speed-dating’ tennis format. The club plans to hold more such occasions, as well as team matches, other tournaments and open days, in the near future.
