Enjoy a year of tennis for just £90!

This website has recently been refreshed and repaired to improve the visitor experience. We have streamlined the main navigation to six pages, which target the aims laid out in the club's current development plan.

On the HOME page you will:

  • Find information about Ripley & Alfreton Tennis Club and what we offer
  • See pictures of our facilities, including the freshly repainted tennis courts
  • Gain an overview of the club and discover how you can learn more, either by continuing to read this website or contacting a member of the club

The CONTACT page allows you to get in touch with us through the website, via email, or by telephone. We have also ensured that there are opportunities throughout the site for you to connect with us, including following us on Facebook.

If you would like to visit the club and see our facilities and community firsthand, you are welcome to arrange a visit: We are based in Ripley (DE5 3GG), within the Amber Valley district of Derbyshire, close to the Nottinghamshire border.

The main four pages encompass the core principles at the heart of Ripley & Alfreton Tennis Club:

JOIN gives you the opportunity to become a member of the club.

We offer a range of memberships to suit all ages, abilities, and interests. There is no joining fee and new members receive a first-year discounted rate of £90. We also offer concessionary rates for adults aged 60 years and over and junior members (under 18 years old at the time of purchasing membership) pay just £20 for annual membership.

PLAY allows you to learn more about the social tennis we champion.
