Tennis & Badminton for Plymouth
Whiteford Road Tennis and Badminton Club is a small, friendly club located in the Mannamead area of Plymouth. It is the only tennis club in Plymouth owned by its members.
Membership is open to anyone irrespective of playing standard.
Coaching services are available for both seniors and juniors .
The Club originated circa 1910 when two squash courts were constructed. These still form a large part of the clubhouse, although they have since been converted into badminton courts.
Tennis has been played at the Club since the 1920s. Over the years, the Club has been prominent in Plymouth tennis. The Club continues to participate in Plymouth and District leagues and championships at senior and junior level.
The Club also hosts four local badminton clubs who use the two indoor courts in the evenings. We have introduced badminton-only membership for play during the day.

Also, the LTA provided guidance on maintaining social distancing and hygiene (see the link here)
In line with the LTA guidance the WRTBC Committee have decided to re-open our club for all members to play tennis (with effect from the 13th May 2020). The clubhouse will remain closed until further notice and in line with Badminton England advice (see link here), our two indoor badminton courts will remain closed until further notice.
Existing members can use Tennis court 2 and 3 only, as court 1 is out of action due to the overhang of a chain fence impacting play.
Existing membership is extended until further notice. This will be regularly reviewed in line with government and LTA guidance. A membership renewal date will be confirmed.
The main gate padlock has been removed and we have provided signage with the above-mentioned guidance. Please also take care when making your way down the walkway to the tennis courts. Construction of a new boundary wall could still be in progress.
Thank you for your continued support, patience and understanding during this time. We continue to improve our communication with you and hope that you continue to enjoy playing tennis. Please help cascade this message to friends, family and colleagues as we are open to members and non-members (fee applicable for non-members, visit our website for more details here
