Welcome to the Lansdown Club - we have wonderful facilities providing the opportunity to play Tennis, Squash, Racketball and Croquet in lovely surroundings
Social mixed tennis is now mainly provided by evening and weekend Club Mixer sessions, which provide organised rotational doubles where you can get to know other club members. For daytime social play sessions during the week see Ladies Morning & Circus Doubles (senior men). Also keep a look out for Social Tournaments which are planned to run in the afternoon on the 1st Sunday Apr-July 2024 – these will be advertised in our members e-newsletter with online sign-up via link in Useful Links on our App/members website.
Club Mixers are a fun way to meet other club members for social doubles – open to Rackets members aged 14 and over with a reasonable ability to serve and rally, up to teams standard. The emphasis is on social mix-in play rather than having set playing standards however in USTA NTRP rating terms, participants would be expected to be in the 3.0-4.5 range.
You must book your place on any Club Mixer session in advance – the Google Booking Sheet link is available on our App/members website under Useful Links and/or by checking the Court Booking notes (login required). In Useful Links you will also find an invite link to join our Tennis Clubplay WhatsApp group if desired.
As of 1st May 2023, Club Mixer sessions will run:
* some Thursday sessions will run as Coach-led Club Play nights 6.30-8.30pm. Everyone welcome, particularly newer members – sign up in advance in the the usual Mixer sheet. After starting off with a coaching tip and warm-up, you will be allocated into doubles matches by the coach as part of a fun team-based competition
Floodlights are provided free of charge for Club Mixers if required. You can ask at the bar for free of charge ex-match balls to use at club play, or just bring your own.
Self-arranged drop-in & mix-in Club Play is available during & after Club Mixer sessions where court availability allows. Floodlights will only be provided free of charge during Mixer time and up to 2 hours for Mixer or clubplay activity only – for club play, mix in with anyone waiting/players on other courts after playing 8 games with Sudden Death Deuce
In order that the sessions run smoothly, please:
Please note, we play Sudden Death Deuce (SDD) in all Mixer games:

Ladies Morning is an informal group of typically ‘more mature’ ladies who play doubles tennis and socialise after – there is a very relaxed environment and new players are welcome.Find out more
