Fairlight Tennis Club website
Welcome to the Fairlight Tennis club. We have one court which is an all weather hard court located at Wood Field. We are a friendly club with a maximum number of 100 members.
Our membership is approaching 100 and yet, with only one court, there are still plenty of vacant booking slots for those wishing to play. In 2021 a decision was made to restrict membership to 100. However, with plenty of free booking slots a decision was taken to increase membership. Anybody from the immediate vicinity of Fairlight who wishes to join should contact our membership secretary, Jim Saphin, at [email protected]
Membership is currently £35 for adults and £10 for juniors; until 28 February 2023.
