Whitchurch Tennis Club is a friendly and growing club and is welcoming to new members whether they are experienced, beginners or just a little bit 'rusty' and wish to get back into tennis. There is also the opportunity to join as a social member only, for those that don’t want to play or don’t have time to play tennis.
The courts at Laverstoke were laid in 2012 and fully refurbished in 2019, providing two full sized and one junior court set in a beautiful location. The onsite club room provides access to changing and toilet facilities.

The number of tickets allocated to the club is determined by the number of members within the club and individual registration by members for British Tennis Membership (which is free).
