Whether you’re looking to start playing socially or competitively we provide the perfect opportunity for you to get involved in tennis. With nine courts, six of which are indoors, tennis is available all year round at The Essex.

Members have exclusive use of our courts. Three of our indoor courts have a Playrite Foundation Carpet surface which has a medium speed and bounce and is extremely kind on the joints. A double skinned, heated dome is home to three Acrylic indoor courts which offer a slower speed and higher bounce. There are also three outside Macadam courts which are extremely popular during the summer months.

The Essex has a very active tennis section with over 20 teams in the Colchester, Halstead and Essex LTA leagues. Members are also welcome to get involved in the club morning or night, Internal Singles and Doubles leagues, Club Tournaments or simply have a friendly knock about.

For those wishing to improve their game, our team of five LTA qualified coaches offer individual and group sessions for all ages, from young mini tennis players through to adult players of all standards.

Club night takes place every Tuesday and Club Morning every Wednesday for Members to enjoy, these are always well attended with anywhere between 15 and 45 members coming along to meet other players and enjoy a few friendly games in a relaxed environment. Our coaches are on hand to arrange the matches and ensure everyone gets a game.
