Welcome to Kingsteignton Tennis Club
Welcome to the Kingsteignton Tennis Club home page. We strive to achieve a friendly, relaxed and fun atmosphere within the club and welcome new members of all abilities. On our website you will find further information about our six competitive teams within the Exeter League and our fun, twice weekly member sessions. If you would like to speak to a member about joining the club, you will find the Membership Secretary's contact details on the Membership page.
Membership Renewal – 10th April Change of Key Day
The Committee had previously extended the membership (due to expire on 1st October 2020) to 1st March 2021. This has been further extended to 10th April 2021 which will now become the ‘Change of Key Day’. Fees can be paid and keys exchanged at the club between 10am and 4pm on Saturday 10th April. New memberships will run until 1st April 2022 and it has been decided to keep the cost of renewal the same, with a discount available until the end of April. Membership forms are available on the website and Jill Pill our Membership Secretary will be providing the new keys.
In future years, we would wish to start the season with a fun tournament / open day but that will not be possible this year due to the COVID restrictions.
Covid-19 Update - Re-Opening of the courts
Following the Government Roadmap re COVID-19, We are pleased to advise that the KTC Committee have met (via Zoom) and agreed that the courts will reopen again on 29th March 2021. Booking of courts will continue via the ClubSpark online booking system which has proven to be very successful. The hut will continue to remain out of use other than for the access to the toilet or light meters.
Kingsteignton Tennis Club was first established in 1995 with assistance from the Sports Council in the form of a lottery grant.
We have three all-weather courts, all of which are floodlit for evening play. Each court has independent lights which are coin operated and take £1 or 20p coins.
We have changing and toilet facilities in our club hut and have a safe spectator seating area immediately adjacent to court 1.
The best way to see what the facilities are like is to come along to one of our friendly club sessions, either on Monday evenings or Saturday afternoons.

The path to the courts will be found on the right-hand side of the road.

Turn left at the bottom of this road, which will then bring you out next to the Ten Tors Public House. Turn left again into Brook Way and follow this road, which then continues, into Rydon Road. Directions are then as above (from Exeter).
