Explore all our tennis and racquets sports – there’s so much to try


Play all year round

You really can play tennis all year round here at Chigwell, as we have nine indoor and five outdoor courts. And, don’t worry about the winter months as we cover the outdoor area with a bubble from October to May. It’s not all about practicing your volley on the courts though – we have a really active social side to our tennis community too, so keep some time free after your game for a coffee with some new friends. 

Padel tennis

Padel Tennis – you’ll be hooked in no time!

If you’ve never played Padel Tennis before then we’re lucky enough to have three courts here at Chigwell for you to have a go on. It’s a little like squash, and it’s a faster game than tennis, so you’ll work up a sweat quickly. You play in pairs on a smaller, enclosed court, and the rules are easy to pick up. Once you’ve mastered the underarm serve you’ll be searching for worthy competitors to take on!
