Maidenhead Tennis Club is a private club owned by its members but is open to anyone to join. Fortunately (or unfortunately) it is a very popular club and there are so many people who want to join that we have to wait for someone to leave before we can take on any more than our self imposed limit of 500 adult members and 200 juniors. Unavoidably, there is a short waiting list to join but the time period can vary. Email our club administrator, Keith Ashby for up to date information about that. We are constantly trying to find new ways of allowing more players a chance to play.
There are two public courts at Oaken Grove, just 500 metres to the north of the club at the end of All Saints Ave which are administered by the club. These can be hired on payment of a fee of £5 per hour to the club's administrator, Keith Ashby. There is a booking folder on the telephone table inside the club’s entrance hall
Club Nights are an excellent opportunity to get to know other members.

The club is affiliated to the LTA, a benefit of which is an allocation of Wimbledon tickets. A ballot for tickets is held and those wishing to enter should place their name on the list which is place on the notice board in April each year.
There are approximately 500 senior and 200 junior members. The club has no minimum playing standard but some playing restrictions are placed on applicants graded as beginners. The Club is a member of the L.T.A. club ratings scheme which means that all new members are 'played in' by a club coach and allocated an individual rating. Full details of the rating system and how to improve your rating are found on the tournament notice board. Member's ratings are published in the telephone directory
The club has a large number of teams playing in the Berkshire, and Aegon British Tennis, leagues. Anyone interested in playing (usually with a rating of 8.2 or above) should contact the relevant team captain (mens, ladies, veterans or junior). More >>
