Walmer Lawn Tennis
& Croquet Club

Before WLTC&C became a tennis club in 1883, it is believed that the land it now occupies was, as the name of the square eludes to, a place for archery.

In the 1960’s, the members at the time had the foresight and opportunity to purchase the land. This guaranteed the future for the following generations.

In the past 10 years, the club has invested heavily in the future of the club and continues to look forwards.

All six grass courts and both croquet lawns have been levelled using state of the art equipment by external contractors who note Chelsea FC as one of their clients. A brand new irrigation system has also been installed, which enables us to manage the moisture content in the playing surfaces. We can boast that we have the best grass courts in Kent, if not in South England!

All this investment has not come cheap, but has been done so by the tireless work of some of the members on a voluntary basis. The next large project is the replacement of the clubhouse and changing rooms, which will require even more investment. If you can help either financially, or you are willing to offer you time, then please contact a committee member.
