Tennis: Where and when

The village has a single hard court located on the Yetminster Sports Club field (off Sussex Farm Way) that is open for play the year around.

There is a thriving Tennis Club with members not only from Yetminster and Ryme Intrinseca but a few from other villages in the Wriggle Valley. Bookings are made online on this website.

There is a small club tournament as part of an Annual Sports Day in the village during the summer and an inter-villages competition, normally in the late summer/autumn.

Fees & Subscriptions

Annual membership runs from 1 May from to 30 April. Membership fees for 2019 are under review and will be published here as soon as possible. Members playing with guests on the court contribute £1 per guest, payable please to the Secretary or Treasurer, once a season on an accumulated basis quite acceptable.


The club treasurer (see under Contacts below) has a small stock of tennis balls (Head Instinct) available at £3 for a can of 4 or £8 for one dozen.


The court is kept locked, presently with a padlock with key but to be replaced in 2019 with a combination lock. The code will be available to members on sign in and they will be notified when this code has changed.

Visitors to the village

Visitors to the village are welcome to use the tennis court and may book and pay a £5 fee at the Old School Gallery (see above) when they will be given the padlock combination.
