Our Membership

Rother Meads Tennis and Games Club is a multi-sports club, incorporating Rye Lawn Tennis Club, Rye Squash Racquets Club and Rye Padel Club, and new members of all ages and standards are always welcome.

We run adult and junior programmes in tennis, squash and padel as well as tennis fitness training sessions for adults and teenagers and junior tennis camps in school holidays and half-terms. The club hosts social events throughout the year and members can also enjoy a game of croquet or table-tennis or a work-out in the gym.

As an amateur sports club, run by its members, we are also always keen to hear from those who have the time to get involved.

The Clubhouse

The clubhouse was extended, rebuilt and refurbished several years ago to provide improved facilities to all members, guests and visitors, while retaining and enhancing the pleasant atmosphere of a traditional English country club. 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.

Social Events

Social events held at the club each year include drinks parties and the annual tournament barbecue and disco. Additional events include Sunday lunches, barbecue evenings and buffet suppers tacked on to sports evenings, including the squash finals and annual table-tennis tournament. For the annual programme of both social and sporting events, see the Diary of Events.

Our Sports

The club hosts five popular sports – tennis, squash, padel, table tennis and croquet – and caters for all standards with coaching for all abilities and dedicated junior sections.

About the Club

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.
