About the club
The Civil Service Lawn Tennis Club has a long history at Dukes Meadows. They have often welcomed professional tennis players warming up on their grass courts for Wimbledon or Queen's, as well as hosting junior qualifying events for Wimbledon.
Originally for the use of civil servants only, Thameside Tennis (formerly CSLTC) can now welcome all public sector workers and people from the local community to play on their excellent, floodlit hard courts and superb grass courts.
