Welcome to Junior Tennis membership at Sutton Tennis & Squash Club. This page gives you lots of information about your membership, but you can also contact Club Manager, Karl Stowell with any questions.
Contact Club Manager to arrange a FREE taster session if you are not already involved in tennis at the club. You will receive a swipe card, which is used to gain entry through the side gate when the clubhouse is closed, and a membership. This card will be at the bar or with the Club Manager. Please pick it up when you come to the club.
Your membership entitles you to full use of the courts from early morning to 10pm, and the clubhouse whenever open, including TV, table tennis, pool table (50p per play, over 14 years only) and changing rooms.
IMPORTANT: Shoes must be clean, non-marking squash / tennis shoes. Anything else can damage the court. Under no circumstances should studs, crocs, running shoes, black soled trainers or casual shoes be worn.
Parents playing with children
Parents who would like to play with their children (but not become full members themselves) can take up a social membership. This entitles parents to play only with their children. Please note that if the courts are full, the court should be vacated if needed by 2 full members.
Bringing guests to the club
Members can bring guests to play tennis, who pay a guest fee of £5 (adults),£3 (11-18 years) and £2 (under 10). Please sign in your guests in the book in the conservatory and put your guest ee in the box, or pay at the bar. A guest can play up to 6 times per year. There is no charge for guests to use the clubhouse and bar, but we recommend Social Membership for anyone who would like to come to the club regularly.

Using the Floodlights
Floodlights cost £5 per hour. Simply top up your floodlight card (which you can get from the bar or manager) at the bar with credit. Then insert your card into the floodlight machine in the conservatory (next to the coffee machine). You can then switch the lights on for the amount of time that you require (in 15 minute increments).
Currently, tennis courts can only be pre-booked for organised sessions such as mix-ins, coaching, club matches and events. However, you can see what is booked on the courts at www.suttonbookings.com – you can also see on the whiteboard in the conservatory which courts are booked. Most of the time, there are courts available whenever you come to the club. There may be rare occasions, at peak times, when the courts are full, in which case there is a system to put your name on the whiteboard to wait for a court. Instructions are on the board.
Please contact Club Manager, Karl Stowell any time for help with any aspect of your tennis.
