Heaton Mersey Tennis Club runs 4 Men's Teams & 3 Ladies' teams in the North East Cheshire Lawn Tennis League.
Competitive match tennis is important at the club but is not the only measure of our success, We hold social doubles sessions for all standards on Wedneday nights and Sunday afternoons throughout the year. This takes place on our all weather beautifully maintained artificial grass courts.
We have four floodlit, astroturf courts situated at the Heatons Sports Club. We currently have four men's league teams and three ladies' teams in the North East Cheshire Lawn Tennis Summer League. We also have 8 Mixed teams in the Winter League.
Our Clubhouse is shared as part of The Heatons Sports Club with Heaton Mersey Cricket Club, Heaton Mersey Lacrosse Club & Heaton Moor Rugby Club and preferential rates apply should you wish to also play any of the other sports at the club. Junior additional sports fees are particularly attractive and most juniors play more than one sport with us.
We have an extremely active social side to the club. Tennis social play for adults takes place every Wednesday evening and Sunday afternoon. The club Sports Bar is open every evening and is well used following social sessions!
We hold several club tournaments through the year which are very popular with almost all members taking part in the mixed doubles where your partner is drawn from a hat - making for some very interesting pairings of keen 1st team players and social players!
The club is extremely welcoming and whatever your standard of play, you are certain of a very warm welcome. Please email on firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange to come along to the social session for free on up to 2 occasions and see whether you would like to join.

Age: 5 & Under
Description: Tots Tennis is for children aged 3 to 5 years old and enables them to learn the basics and how to enjoy the game through a series of fun activities based on the fundamental areas of balance, co-ordination, agility, movement and racket and ball skills. Tots play with sponge balls and 19 or 21 inch rackets and the focus is about making it as much fun as possible.
Age: 8 & Under
Description: Mini Tennis Red is for players aged 8 and under. It is played on small courts with short rackets and soft balls. It’s just like the real game and gives players the opportunities to have long rallies and play different types of shot
Age: 8 and 9
Description: Mini Tennis Orange is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Red. It is played with shorter rackets, softer balls and courts are bigger and wider than the red stage but still smaller than full size tennis courts allowing players to develop a rounded game whilst learning a range of techniques and tactics.
Description: Mini Tennis Green is a great way for players to continue their progress from Mini Tennis Orange. It is played on a full size tennis court, with bigger rackets and balls which are a little softer than yellow balls. It’s the next stage before moving on to compression yellow balls on a full sized court and helps players develop and improve all aspects of their game. For older players new to tennis it is a great way to get started.

We are rightfully proud of our warm and welcoming membership. We enjoy our tennis and we enjoy the social side too!
In recent years the club have undertaken tennis tours to play at clubs in the UK and Channel Islands. Regular and very well attended social sessions take place on Sunday afternoons.
