After 64 years at Hillside Road, the club was forced to move when the council compulsorily purchased the site, in order to build Maple Primary School. For a couple of years the Club used hired courts in Clarence Park, until it was able to move into its current "rather rural" premises in Jersey Lane in 1971. It was only in 1999 that the "& Croquet" was dropped from the Club's name, even though the game had died out in the 1920s. The Club has served an enthusiastic tennis playing community for over 100 years, and has often enjoyed great success in both the men's and women's local Hertfordshire leagues and competitions. We can even boast having had a Wimbledon Ladies Singles finalist, and Doubles Champion Kay Stammers, who won our ladies singles tournament some years earlier.
The club organises many social events all year round ranging from a quiz night to summer barbeques and Christmas Parties. Details are advertised on the club notice board as well as this web site.
We have an increasing membership and excellent facilities so why not join us?
