Yarm Tennis Club has been in existence since 1921 and over the years has grown in stature and reputation as one of the region’s leading outdoor tennis clubs. The club is part of the Yarm Recreation Ground Trust and is situated on a site in Leven Road, Yarm which is shared by Yarm Cricket & Yarm Squash Clubs.
Popular with adults and juniors alike, the club caters for all standards from beginners upwards. Teams represent the club at all levels in the local leagues, and junior membership is extremely strong. Anne Clayton, our resident coach, has won national awards for her abilities and dedication.
We are proud to have been awarded “Tennis Clubmark” status, in recognition of our high standards, effective management and provision of a safe environment for juniors to play, enjoy and improve their game.
Facilities at the club consist of 9 outdoor courts, 6 being all weather courts, with 3 acrylic courts. Floodlights are installed on 6 courts allowing and encouraging winter play. The club has a spacious clubhouse, including showers, a well-equipped kitchen, and interior space for social events.
We also have a licensed bar for members of the Tennis, Squash & Crickets Clubs with social events throughout the year.
The object of the club is to promote and encourage the playing of tennis by providing a reasonably priced mix of social and competitive tennis for players of all ages and standards, including disability groups.
