are listed on the clubs section of
this website, including my own local
community club - Chiswick Poly Tennis.
in Cavendish Road, W4, we currently
hire the tennis facilities on an
annual basis from the University
of Westminster, who run the Chiswick
not a posh club with luxury facilities.
Yes, we've got all the nets and equipment,
but our six hard courts are, in truth,
reaching the end of their lives.
Six grass courts on the "railway"
side of our site - The
Quintin Hogg Memorial Ground
- are open from May to September.
you've walked or driven along Hartington
Road recently, you'll have noticed
that four additional grass courts
opposite Chiswick Quay have not reopened
this summer. This is to allow the
planned development of new sporting
facilities, including construction
of up to nine new courts.
why join Chiswick Poly Tennis? Well,
our members will tell you that we're
not like your average tennis club.
We encourage players of all abilities
- adult and junior. There is no "playing
in", coaching is available and
membership fees are very reasonable.
We also like to smile.
you're looking for - and can afford
- a club with indoor courts, swimming
pool, sauna, plus five star bar and
restaurant, then Chiswick Poly is
not for you. But if you're searching
for a tennis club with a bit of individuality
and character, and the largest amount
of sky in west London, then serve
up our website and take a look
might not be Wimbledon. But turn
up and play on a cold winter's day
when the sky is ice blue - or in
the middle of summer with the sun
beating down on the grass - and you'll
understand why people belong to what
we think is a unique club.
