When St George’s Hill Tennis & Croquet Club first opened on 7 June 1913, the beautifully manicured grass tennis courts put Weybridge on the tennis map.
100 years later and the Weybridge tennis club has gone from strength to strength. St George’s Hill Lawn Tennis Club, as the club is now known, hosts international tournaments featuring top tennis players and rising stars of the next generation.
The Club has a reputation for its tennis well beyond the Weybridge area and attracts players of all ages and abilities from Surrey and South East England.
So, what makes the Weybridge health club such a special place for tennis? Here are a few of the reasons why so many people are inspired to pick up a racquet and enjoy the game at its finest.
Staying fit and healthy
Tennis offers so many different ways to improve your fitness and boost your wellbeing. Scientific studies show that playing tennis regularly can help your aerobic fitness, build strength and improve your bone health. What’s more, playing outside means you get greater exposure to fresh air and Vitamin D to boost your sense of wellbeing.
International level courts
St George’s Hill Lawn Tennis Club has outstanding tennis facilities. Choose from over 30 courts featuring different surfaces (grass, artificial grass, porous acrylic, artificial clay and Tru Clay courts). Not forgetting the 2 indoor Green Set GrandPrix Acrylic courts with a sprung timber sub frame.
The Weybridge tennis club plays host to regular ITF and LTA events and in 2020 held the 6 week long UK Pro Series and Classic Tournament. The women’s final was won by Emma Raducanu, winner of the 2021 US Open.
Tradition and innovation
The sight of tennis whites and lush green grass courts is the epitome of an English summer. You can even grab a Pimms on our lakeside terrace to complete your ideal day. We are proud to offer everything that is beautiful about the game of tennis including a welcome and inclusive environment for everyone.
