Old College offers some of the best tennis facilities and playing opportunities in south London.  We run numerous teams in the Surrey and Southwark leagues, provide social club play and group coaching for all levels, and organise regular internal competitions, as well as our annual adult and junior Club Championships.

Our membership are divided into three playing standards:

  • Improver
  • Intermediate
  • Advanced

Description of these standards can be found here


We have the most up-to-date facilities in the area. As well as our well-equipped clubhouse and bar, we also boast:

  • 7 floodlit courts
  • 4 all weather artificial clay courts
  • 3 hard courts
  • table tennis facilities

The bar is normally open for drinks and snacks on club-play evening sessions

Team tennis at Old College is thriving with:

  • 6 men’s teams
  • 8 women’s teams

Our teams play in the LTA Surrey leagues – Men’s, Women’s and Mixed – as well as AEGON Team Surrey leagues, and Southwark leagues.

Team practice for team players is held every Monday night – teams attend on rotation and members have to sign up beforehand.

A selection process is run before each Winter and Summer season, and all members wishing to represent the club in competition have the opportunity to apply. Our objectives are to raise our standard of play and win the divisions we are entered into each season! We aim to be open, transparent and fair when it comes to our selection process and in our dealings with our fellow competitors. Our Team Selection Policy can be found in the Policy section in the Members Area.
