About being small…
We are a recreational tennis club, with strong community links and a lively social section.
Completely rebuilt in 1998-99 as a result of a Sport England National Lottery grant, Woodfield Grove Tennis Club has 3 cushioned acrylic tennis courts plus a further macadam court, all of which are floodlit so play is possible throughout the year up until 10 pm at night.
Refurbished in the spring of 2008, the modern two-storey clubhouse offers a licensed lounge bar with Sky TV and has a kitchen with a hot drinks vending machine and free wireless broadband available to members throughout the day.
A room upstairs, with its own TV and Sky service, is used for Bridge, meetings and social functions, while there are separate changing and shower facilities for men and women.
There is easy access for the disabled to the club, including a lift for getting upstairs and access to Court 4.
The club was entirely re-decorated again in December 2016, both inside and out, and a BST/GMT time-adjusted solar-powered exterior clock added to the balcony viewing area, nicely sprucing up the place.
Anyone may join the club.
Members wishing to play in Club Sessions, however, are required to meet a minimum standard to ensure they know how to serve, score and follow basic court etiquette.

If you are an adult beginner, you may like to try your hand at Tennis Xpress, a six-week course that will teach you all the basics.
Club Sessions take place on:
- Wednesdays from 10am – 1pm
- Fridays from 10am – 1pm
- Sundays from 3.30pm – 5.30pm
- Wednesdays from 7pm – 10pm
Members may use the courts outside club sessions between 9 am and 10 pm and are issued with their own entry swipe card to enable access to club facilities.
Coaching is available to help newcomers attain the required minimum standard for Club Sessions or help to improve their games.
An annual club tournament, plus a winter handicap mixed competition as well as online tennis ladders, occasional box leagues and American tournaments throughout the year offer ample opportunity for match play outside team competition.
WGTC fields three men’s, two women’s and two mixed teams in the Surrey League and also participates in the Surrey Knockout competitions, the Millennium Cup and the Streatham Cup.
