A warm welcome to Stockton Heath Lawn Tennis Club…
Throughout its existence the Club has provided opportunities for tennis players of all ages and abilities to enjoy the game and develop their skills. There is a strong coaching tradition and a thriving junior section as a result. The Club has entered as many as 20 teams spanning all age groups in the Warrington and District League and Cheshire County knockout competitions. The Club first teams, men's, ladies and mixed have been placed top of the first division on many occasions. Club tournaments are organised for junior and senior players.
The Club now occupies an area of some 2-3 acres with extensive woodland around the courts and Clubhouse. Following extensive redevelopment in 2022, the two shale courts have been converted to the latest astro turf and modern floodlighting added to five of the seven courts. The Mini Tennis Courts are used by the younger children and help them to learn the basic skills of tennis. There is also the use of six floodlit courts, three surfaced with artificial grass and three with porous macadam at Bridgewater High school, for which SHLTC share the use and management of these courts with the school.
