Ridgeway Tennis Club offers something for everyone who is interested in playing tennis. The club has three floodlit hard courts full time in the summer and at weekends in the winter.
There is competitive tennis as the club has men’s and mixed doubles teams in the Sheffield and District LTA leagues and a men’s team in the Works League.
There is social tennis with two club nights each week and plenty of court time for those who want to arrange casual matches with other club members.
Club tournaments are held throughout the summer and a number of social events are held throughout the year.
There is a weekly junior coaching session for juniors and adults and these are open to both members and non- members.
Players of all standards are welcome, from social players to team players, and juniors are actively encouraged through a coaching programme and participation in match play.
