Radley College Tennis Court

Welcome to Radley College Tennis Court’s website, the home of the Club’s news, events and reports.

The Radley College court is one of the newest courts in the world. Since opening its doors in 2008 the Radley court has one of the highest occupancy rates in the world. We have a healthy mix of students, staff, old boys and members of the local community.

Membership is growing in number, experience and skill, thanks to the service, advice and coaching provided by our two full-time professionals.  The head professional is Chris Ronaldson, ex-world champion and winner of multiple Grand Slam titles, and he is assisted by Nino Merola.

The court plays well and visitors often comment on the quality of the floor and the lighting.

We have enjoyed hosting several national events including the British Over 60 Doubles Championship, British Amateur Doubles Championship, qualifiers for the British Open Singles and Doubles and exhibitions by past and current world champions.

Club activities include friendly matches with other clubs, internal tournaments, fun competitions, club nights, exhibition matches and a few social events.  In the current 2017/8 season we  have teams in the Brodie Cup competition and in the Franklins Solicitors Thames Valley League.

Success in competitions is very satisfying. However, to get a real flavour of the game and the club please see the “I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts!” post in our Friendly Match Reports category.

To discover more about the game, watch it, or give it a try, come and talk to us. Visitors and potential new members are always very welcome.
