Townsend Tennis Club

View across the tennis courts

The tennis section of Townsend boasts eight courts, playable year round and offering three different all weather surfaces – porous acrylic, brand new Astroturf and modern EuroClay courts which were laid in August 2012. Five of these courts are floodlit with state-of-the-art floodlighting available from dusk until 10pm nightly.

Townsend has a wide variety of teams competing in most of the Hertfordshire competitions, including the Herts league, Watford & District, Datchworth, Hot Rackets and Herts Veterans leagues, so the club is an excellent choice for players looking for competitive tennis.

It also offers a lively social tennis scene with regular club nights and tournaments and offers a genuine welcome to new members. There is also excellent coaching programme run by our Lawn Tennis Association (LTA)-affiliated coach, Matt Foster, and his team.

Tennis Clubmark logoWe are proud to be the first St Albans tennis club to achieve LTA Clubmark status, which reflects our commitment to junior tennis development and means the LTA endorses our tennis programme, policies and procedures, development planning and overall club management.

Our large clubhouse provides a fully licensed and professionally staffed bar, open every evening and Sunday lunchtimes. There are also changing rooms with showers, TV/games room, kitchen and function rooms.

The clubhouse facilities are also available to hire to members of the public. Please contact us if you would like further details.
