About Us

Established in 1906, Downend & Frenchay Tennis Club (formerly Downend & Fishponds LTC) has a long history and counts ex Davis Cup Captain, Paul Hutchins, as a former member. Two years ago, the club relocated from the lower end of Cleeve Hill to the grounds at Frenchay Cricket Club.

Today, the club offers a comprehensive coaching programme for players at all levels from junior to club league players. Courts are available for play up to 10pm every day. Lights are free for all members too.
