The Club has eight tennis courts:
- 3 all-weather courts, including 1 floodlit,
- Five clay courts
The Tennis and Management Committees are also working on making lighting available for courts 8 & 3, although the timing of this is still unclear due to the already extensive works that will be undertaken by the club this Winter. In addition, we are also working on redoing the lines of court 3 to improve safety and tennis experience on this court. We will communicate on this at a later stage.
Finally, your Tennis committee is working in parallel on improving the Tennis coaching experience, especially for the children, with tennis committee members participating in the evaluation of children's Tennis levels, and with the centralisation of all coaching demands to be managed by the club's office in order to harmonise levels within coaching lessons as well as organise events for children.
Lessons and Coaching
We are sad to announce that our coach Menye will be leaving us in June. She is launching an exciting new concept store ‘Les Dames des Roches’ www.lesdamesdesroches.fr; We wish her all the best with her new adventures.
We are already looking for new coaches and will keep the parents and students informed as soon as we have more news. Our team is hard at work to ensure a quality tennis school with exciting new offers for next year.
The Club has two coaches who run group lessons for children on Wednesdays (court 3 and 8) and Saturdays (court 8). Private lessons can be organised during the week or on weekend mornings when clay courts are open. Members should reserve their court for this.

The club has four Junior teams taking part in FFT events in the Spring and Autumn. For more information see the Children's section on this site.
It is extremely important to have a valid tennis licence when you play tennis at the Club and therefore FFT Licences for children and adults are now included in the overall joining fee of the Club. Don’t hesitate to contact Christine de Fontgalland, if necessary.
