Make the most out of your membership with Social and Competitive Tennis at Skipton Tennis Centre

Club Social Tennis

At Skipton Tennis Centre we have a fun and thriving Social Tennis scene. Adult Social Tennis takes place on a Tuesday between 6.30-9.30pm and Sunday morning 10am – 1.00pm. Junior Social Tennis takes place on a Friday evening 6-8pm. 

Social tennis is an excellent way to meet and socialise with other club members by playing some fun singles and doubles Tennis. You can expect the club nights/days to be very involving and they are a great way of finding regular games.

We welcome all members to take part in Social Tennis and recommend anyone looking for a game to give this a go. There is no need to book these sessions, just turn up and play.

The social tennis scene runs year-round and there is a strong turnout throughout. When the floodlights are needed this costs £2 per member for the evening.
