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.

Members really enjoy our group tennis sessions under the floodlights.  Between 6pm and 8pm every Wednesday, weather permiting.

Club members may also purchase floodlight tokens to play outside of club times. 


We 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 sessions are free. 

You can also arrange to play at the club with family or friends for free outside of a club session. Email to arrange a visit.


We have four all-weather tennis courts. Two courts have floodlights. They are well maintained, the top two courts have recently been re-surfaced and re-painted. 


As a member you can easily book a court online in advance if you wish. Members can also turn up and play on an available court outside Club Sessions.

Book a Court 


We have group sessions at set times for all members to turn up and play tennis together, known as Club Sessions. Normally we play mixed, men’s or ladies’ doubles, though the more energetic amongst us enjoy a game of singles too. The club provides Slazenger Balls for Club Sessions. This is included in your membership fee.

Group Tennis Play 


We have MDL as our coaching company. Tony and Matt are our regular coaches.  They offer individual coaching, hold Junior coaching on Saturday mornings and adult coaching sessions in the summer.

Our Coaches 


A colourful and creative themed messy play group for under 5's is held in the clubhouse on Saturday's at 9.30am (the same time as Red Ball junior tennis coaching for ages 5-8).  A great opportunity to socialise with other local families with similar age children.  The best thing about it is you get to walk away from the mess!

The club is in a quiet residential area. Many members walk or cycle, though parking is easy near the entrance to the club, by the green gate. The tennis club is local to residents of Sanderstead, Hamsey Green, Warlingham, and Selsdon.
