Covid-19 Update

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, and in line with LTA guidance Ripley and Alfreton Tennis Club will be closing its facilities with immediate effect.

Our first priority is the health and safety of our members and we hope to be open again soon. We have changed the gate access code to try and prevent access to the facilities.

Membership Renewal

We are currently going through our annual membership renewal process and want to give some clarity around this situation, for those that have already renewed, and those who haven't.

Members who have already renewed

When restrictions are lifted and play can resume, we will change your membership start date to that date. Your membership will then last one year from this date.

Members who haven't renewed yet

You have two options. You can renew now and then we will handle your membership start and end date as above. Alternatively, you can take out your membership when restrictions are lifted.

Members who joined in January

You don't need to do anything now. We will amend your membership end date when restrictions are lifted to account for lost playing time.

50/50 Club

We can still continue with registrations to the 50/50 Club however payment will have to be made by BACS transfer. Please email your entry forms to and we will be in touch with details about payment.

Ripley and Alfreton Tennis Club was formed in 2014 following a merger of Ripley Tennis Club and New Watchorn Tennis Club, Alfreton.

We are a friendly local tennis club based in Ripley catering for all ages and abilities. Our members come from the surrounding areas of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

We have four new hard courts two with floodlights and a new club house and plenty of car parking space. We are continually investing the Clubs facilities as we grow and develop.

Our Ladies took on Ilkeston last night in Division 3. Pauline and Abbie took four. Unfortunately Nicola sustained an elbow injury early on and was unable to continue. So, a 4-4 draw. Happy Christmas to all the tennis folk of Derbyshire! ... See MoreSee Less
