The Chalke Valley Tennis Club has two floodlit ‘all weather’ macadam hard courts at the Chalke Valley Sports Centre and tennis is played throughout the year.  Around 100 family and individual members, from both inside and outside the Valley, enjoy:-

  • Use of the courts at the CVSC whenever they are free, and also, by arrangement, of 2 other private courts in the Valley.  You can use the event calendar to check that the courts have not already been booked.  Then you can either just turn up — the courts will usually be free — or you can make a booking by e-mailing  See here for further details about using the private courts.
  • All members are welcome just to turn up to our weekly social tennis sessions.  As well as our regular ‘Mix-Ins’ on Thursday evenings from 6pm-8pm, and on Sunday mornings from 11am-1pm, we have now started a gentler session on Tuesday evenings from 7pm-8pm and a session for ladies on Saturday mornings from 9.30am-11.30am.  There are WhatsApp groups for the various sessions so that you know if the sessions are running due to weather etc. — please let us know if you’d like to join any of these groups.
  • Junior and adult coaching.
  • Since we are an LTA-affiliated club, members have the opportunity to buy Wimbledon tickets from the LTA allocated to affiliated clubs.
  • Adult tournaments – we continue to play in the Sarum and Shaftesbury doubles leagues.  We try to field strong teams for the Sarum matches, while in the Shaftesbury League we try to accommodate all those who’d like to play.  Please let us know if you are interested in playing league matches.
  • Club singles ladder.
  • Occasional social events.


Our member Atilio Loncar can restring your tennis rackets: you can contact him on 01725 552651.

Membership for 2024-5

The membership year runs from 1st April each year to 31st March the following year. To renew, or join as a new member, please use the online form here.  Note that membership fees for new members decrease smoothly over the membership year — the form will compute the current fee for you if you indicate that you are signing up as a new member.

You need to be a member to use the MUGA (Multi-Use Games Area, by the Sports Centre pavilion) tennis courts – except for coaching lessons and guests (see below) – and members are able to play on the MUGA whenever it is free.

Guidance on using the MUGA is available here.  Please remember to let down the nets after play, to minimise stress on the post fixings, and to tie up the nets so that they don’t rub and fray on the tarmac.

Non-members are welcome to play up to 5 times per year if they pay a session fee.  The fee is £3 per adult per session, £2 per session for each child or person in full-time education.  A player can play as a guest no more than five times in a year: after that the player needs to become a member.  Please pay guest fees either (preferably) direct to the club account, number 01743042, sort code 30-97-41, or by cheque to the Chalke Valley Tennis Club, and forward your cheque to Matthew Dodd at Chapel Cottage, Chapel Lane, off North Street, Broadchalke SP5 5EN.

Wimbledon Ballot

Club members can opt-in in the first part of January each year to enter an LTA-run ballot for Wimbledon tickets. The ballot is now run online – you join a queue to enter a website, and then can choose to buy a pair of tickets for some court on some day of the Wimbledon fortnight, according to what tickets are remaining. If you are interested, please make sure that you are signed up as an LTA member and check the LTA website in early January to opt-in to the ballot. The Club will also try to alert members when the opt-in window opens. As a CVTC member, you can join as an LTA Advantage Play+ member, affiliated to the Chalke Valley Tennis Club, free of charge here.
