Magdalen Park Tennis Club has some of the best club tennis facilities in South West London!
The club has 8 tennis courts; 4 Plexipave Acrylic in US Open blue and 4 artificial clay. The Plexipave are medium fast, the ball bounces a little higher and plays like a dream, many a visiting team say just how nicely they play.
The artificial clay courts play slower, great for practicing your ground strokes and really come into their own when it rains as they remain playable.
All 8 courts are floodlit; floodlights cost £2.00 for half an hour and can be used until 10pm in the evening. New balls and floodlights are free during social tennis sessions on Wednesday evenings, Saturdays & Sundays afternoons and available to buy at other times.
The clubhouse is constantly refurbished and is equipped with kitchen, licensed bar, changing rooms and widescreen TV with Sky Sports. Casement windows on both sides open fully out allowing excellent viewing during the summer months. The clubhouse also has a balcony overlooking courts 1 & 2, which are regularly used for team matches.
We have a professionally staffed bar that is open every weeknight throughout the year from 6.30pm until late and from midday at weekends. The bar serves draft and bottled lagers and ales, as well as an excellent selection of wines and spirits, plus tea, coffees and soft drinks. At weekends, fresh home-made cakes are available. Barry our barman is a smiling and welcoming presence.
We have a lovely patio on which members can relax and watch the tennis on courts 7 & 8 whilst enjoying a picnic or drinks with friends.
As a part of our exterior improvements we created an area for bicycles with many new racks and automatic lights so we don't get bikes cluttering up the club grounds.
The club has a large BBQ, which is very popular and available for members to use. All in all, Magdalen Park offers excellent facilities for members focused on their tennis, or for those who simply want to sit back, relax and enjoy time with friends.
