Halton Tennis Centre has always been the spiritual home of Royal Air Force Tennis - an ongoing association we are very proud of.
Sqn Ldr Damian Gange
Halton has been home to Royal Air Force Tennis since the 1920s. In addition to matches and training sessions throughout the year, each summer sees the RAF Championships held here, before the RAF team head to Wimbledon to take on the Army & Navy in the annual Inter-Service Championships.
Service personnel and their families are welcome to join the tennis centre and Halton Health & Fitness Club to enjoy the facilities and organised tennis activities we offer. Currently, some 35 RAF serving personnel and their spouses from Halton, High Wycombe and Benson are full members of the Club. We also offer County Membership for those living more than 25 miles away, which makes it feasible for personnel serving further afield to be members. Many keen players from RAF Halton and High Wycombe play regularly and join in with Rusty Rackets, Club sessions and our teams. Please contact Gill Roe on 01296 623453 or 07922 012443 for details of our RAF Membership rates.
