Please wear proper tennis shoes and predominantly white clothing on the grass courts.

Please can all players come wearing shoes that are designed for tennis.  An hour on the courts wearing the wrong shoes can ruin a grass court for the whole season, so unfortunately we cannot allow play if you are not wearing the right shoes.

The Centenary Open Day 2022

As part of the club’s centenary celebrations we wanted to hold an event that would inspire the next generation to take up the sport. At our Open Day, Tim and Dan managed to do just that by working throughout the day with children across the widest possible range of ages – from under 8 up to 18.
About the Club

The club hosts five popular sports and caters for all standards from juniors and beginners to county level.

Founded in 1922 as the Rother Meads Tennis and Games Club, on the banks of the River Rother in the rural outskirts of Rye in East Sussex. We are a Community Amateur Sports Club, run by our members, and welcome players of all standards and ages.

We are a friendly club and enjoy regular social events, as well as offering tennis, padel and squash coaching for adults and children, fitness training sessions, half-term and holiday junior tennis camps and the chance to compete in tournaments and matches.

Our Facilities

Boasting an impressive array of facilities that cater to all sports enthusiasts.

Social events held at the club each year include drinks parties and the annual tournament barbecue and disco at the beginning of August. Additional events include Sunday lunches, barbecue evenings and buffet suppers tacked on to sports evenings, including the squash finals and annual table-tennis tournament.

Events are arranged from time to time to raise additional funds to improve the club facilities. These have included dances, golf days, open gardens, opera evenings and bicycle rides.

The bar is usually open from 6pm Monday to Thursday as well as on Sundays from 12pm. The club rooms are also available for private hire by members.

For the full annual programme of both social and sporting events, see the Diary of Events.
