Sutton Coldfield Tennis Club prides itself on being able to offer its members and guests a variety of court surfaces to play on. In total we have 4 different surfaces.
The club has two Indoor Courts.
Courts 1 and 2. NEW LED LIGHTS.
Court 2 has a ‘MOJJO’ HD camera which detects the movement of the ball and also players and lines on the court to understand what has happened in a game. It also captures in-game data from the players focusing on their serves, returns, breakpoints and distance covered over a full match. For more information visit http://www.mojjo.fr/
Indoor Surface – Proflex Impermeable Acrylic. It has excellent durability, a consistent and true ball bounce. ITF classified.

Courts 4, 5, 6, 7 and 9
DOE Olympus. This surface is recognised as the best synthetic carpet court available and is the chosen surface of Andy Murray’s tennis court at Cromlix Hotel. The surface is laid and sand is in filled to keep the carpet ballast and then a rubber granule is spread on the top to improve playing characteristics. Unlike regular carpet courts the sand is never visible therefore you don’t get the slippyness that most sand filled courts have. The playing speed is medium to fast depending on the weather and with a medium to low bounce. This surface is playable all year round. Also 4 of the 5 of these courts are floodlit
Courts 8a & 8b.
Poraflex all weather cushioned surface. This is a high performance water permeable acrylic surface. It has a medium to slow pace producing a medium to high ball bounce. Comfort underfoot and playable in most weather conditions. Responds well to spin particularly topspin. These courts are floodlit.
Courts 10, 11 and 12
Tarmac macadam surface. This surface is a hard medium to high bouncing court with a medium to slow speed. One of the main advantages of this surface is that it does not hold water like the carpet courts do, therefore the balls don’t become as heavy in wet conditions. One of the down sides of this surface is that it can be slippy in the wet. These courts are floodlit.
The court can be used until 9pm each evening. The court is Floodlit.
The cost is £4.00 daytime and £5.00 from 6pm for half an hour and includes bats and balls.
Please book your court on your phone via Clubspark App.
We will shortly be introducing a Padel ladder to encourage some competition.
The gym was set up in 2002 to cater for tennis members who either wanted to increase their general fitness level or (like many of us) were recovering from minor injuries.
It was later expanded to accommodate local members of the public. The gym offers members a complete range of resistance and cardiovascular equipment.
The gym is accessed by a swipe card and is available all week at any time between 7.00am in the morning and 10.30pm in the evening.
Members must clear the changing rooms by 11.00pm.
Membership allows full use of the gym and you are also a Social member of the Tennis Club and can use all of the lounge and bar facilities.
The objective of The Club is the promotion and enjoyment of the game of tennis. However, this would not be possible without a thriving social scene off court to bring the members together to create a true “club” atmosphere.
The Club has a lounge bar which is open during the following times :-
- Monday to Friday 6pm to 11pm
- Saturday 12 noon to 11pm
- Sunday 12 noon to 10.30pm
All classes of members are permitted to use the bar facilities with the overriding proviso that junior members should not drink or attempt to buy alcohol and should not be in the bar after 9pm unless they are accompanied by a parent.
There are several televisions in the bar and major sporting events are screened.
There is a regular Thursday evening quiz where you can bring your own team or just turn up and join in with some other members.
A few times each year there is live entertainment on a Saturday and the last Sunday of each month where members and their guests are welcome to come and enjoy themselves.
The function room shown above is available for hire to members & non-members at a cost of £100. A deposit of £100 is required on booking. This will be refunded once the premises have been inspected & found to have been left clean & tidy.
Signed Terms & Conditions, together with the deposit must be received by the Club to confirm your booking. The hire fee is payable a minimum of 3 weeks prior to your event.
