Since 1993


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.
