Steeple Morden Tennis Club Courts
Our Courts
We have three well maintained hard courts which are situated in the village conservation area with stunning views of the surrounding South Cambridgeshire countryside.

Two of the courts have floodlights and the third court, established in 2011, stands in its own fenced area adjacent to the original two courts.  Members are issued with a key which gives access to all three courts and also the Clubhouse.

The floodlights for Courts 1 and 2 can be used up to 10pm in the evening and are activated by tokens which can be bought from either Steeple Morden village Post Office, our club Secretary (Fiona) or from Avril (Chairman). Each token costs £1 and lasts for 30 minutes. The token meter is situated in the Clubhouse. 

Extreme care needs to be exercised to ensure they are turned off at the meter in the Clubhouse one at a time and not all together via the Mains switch, otherwise – the lights will go out BUT the fuse blows. The correct procedure is posted in the Clubhouse next to the switches or you can Open/Download detailed instructions here.
