The Archery, as the Society is affectionately known, has a long and distinguished history in the evolution of the modern game of lawn tennis. As befits the oldest lawn tennis club in the world, the Archery is set in beautiful surroundings illustrated by the photos on this website. The facilities are varied and of the highest standard with the club boasting 6 grass courts, 4 shale courts, 2 floodlit artificial grass courts and the further use of some tarmac courts at local schools - allowing play on a variety of different surfaces.
Despite its long history, the club is not resting on its laurels. Indeed, it is very much looking to the future. We are always looking for partners to develop links with - these include schools, other sports clubs and community groups.
The club is active in many arenas. In the tennis arena we run a large complement of menıs, ladiesı and mixed teams in both summer and winter seasons in addition to our social tennis programme. We also perform exceedingly well on the Junior tennis front having also achieved accreditation as an LTA Mini Tennis centre. On the Social front we have an active calendar and increasingly members are choosing to hold private functions such as birthday parties at the club.
The Archery is renowned for its friendly atmosphere and beautiful setting. If this appeals to you then please come and visit us, as we always welcome new members.
