Friendly & Fun Tennis Club For Everybody!

Welcome to Ockbrook and Borrowash LTC... New Members Welcome...

We are a friendly club with a mission to provide accessible tennis in the local community. The Club is situated in Borrowash with easy links to the A52, so it is also well placed for anyone living or working in Derby or Nottingham who want to play.

We are a well established Club with 5 outdoor carpet courts. There are a range of opportunities for all ages and abilities to play tennis, from competitive play in league matches, to being able to join in some fun social sessions.

Our coaching programme ranges from junior group coaching to private lessons and organised adult training.

We are actively encouraging new members, so please click on the 'Memberships' or 'Booking' tab to find out more.

The History of the Club

Ockbrook & Borrowash Lawn Tennis Club has been a local tennis club for over 100 years, having been formed back in 1919 to provide a recreation facility for soldiers arriving back from the 1914-1918 Great War. The surface that these war time heros played on back then was grass, hence why we are known as a Lawn Tennis Club. Over more recent years, the club has been transitioned from grass to provide more hard wearing surfaces, so that play can be enjoyed all year round and through all types of weather conditions.

The Current Day

The Club Mission Statement is 'To offer a good standard of tennis facilities and coaching service to the local community in which we are situated. Looking to develop and encourage new skills for all ages and abilities'.

We provide Adult & Junior tennis to the local community and we have around 135 members (adults and juniors} of mixed playing ability. We have 6 adult teams playing in the Derby Area Tennis Leagues in both Summer & Winter, as well as Junior teams who also play competitively.

A range of memberships offers are available payable annually or monthly, so please see our membership section for more information.

Visitors can book a court by visiting the Booking Page. The cost for a court is £5.00 per half hour (min 1 hour).

We offer Junior Coaching with our Head Coach, James Middleton every Saturday 9am-1pm and on Sunday’s mornings with Gary Edwards.

The Future

We are actively recruiting more members with an aim to increase our numbers significantly over the next 3 years. We are a not for profit organisation, so all money raised from new memberships goes back into improving the facilities.

We are raising funds to purchase Floodlights, so that play can be enjoyed during the evening hours all throughout the year. We will also be starting to resurface two of the older courts later this year to make Ockbrook & Borrowash Lawn Tennis Club one of the premier outdoor tennis venues in the County. 

If you are a new player thinking of joining, we'd love to have you, so please get in touch today!
