Welcome to Townsend Tennis Club, the home of tennis in St Albans, Hertfordshire.

The club has 7 men’s teams and 5 ladies teams who play in the Herts league, a Watford & District Mixed team, three Herts Hot Rackets teams and a full range of Teams competing in Winter Veteran’s leagues. So, if you are interested in playing competitive tennis, then Townsend is an excellent place to be.

Townsend also has excellent tennis coaching facilities with an LTA affiliated coach who is based at the club, and has a coaching team to help.



We are delighted to announce that the top court replacement work is now complete and the courts are open for business.

A great deal of hard work has gone into tracking down this particular type of porous acrylic surface that has proved so popular with members, so many thanks to our Chairman Trevor Bull, who has worked very hard to see this project through.

Townsend Facilities

Townsend Tennis Club boasts eight courts – three brand new all weather Euroclay courts, three astroturf and two all weather porous acrylic, all of which are playable all year round. Five courts are also floodlit and are switched on from dusk until 10 p.m.

Our Modern Clubhouse was built in 2000/2001 and is a fantastic facility benefiting all the sections within the club. The bar is professionally-run and includes a selection of real ales. We have a large hall catering for up to 120 people and a modern kitchen for catering purposes. We also have another room downstairs that is available for meetings, small social gatherings, children’s parties, etc.
