Sanderstead Village Lawn Tennis Club is set in just under an acre of lovely grounds in the heart of Sanderstead Village.  

Since the club opened in 1932 it has held the values of tennis being a fun and enjoyable sport to play for all ages. Families have always been encouraged to join us and make the most of the peaceful and quiet space we offer to have fun together playing tennis and more recently, Pickelball.


We warmly welcome new members of any age and ability.  We understand it takes a while to be sure you have found the right club, so your FIRST 3 VISITS ATTENDING OUR GROUP PLAY SESSIONS ARE FREE.

You can also arrange to play at the club with family or friends for free outside of a club session.  Membership details can be found here.
