If you book a court that you later no longer require, please cancel your booking so another member can avail of the court.
The court lighting system is operated via the meters outside on the clubhouse wall. Lighting is charged at £3 per hour and meters can take £1 and £2 coins.
Rackets and balls are available for new members to borrow if required – please speak to a committee member or coach to arrange this.
No. Junior members enjoy all the same benefits as adult members. Children under the age of 16 must be supervised at all times when using the courts. If you wish to play tennis with your younger child for fun, we recommend a parent membership which costs £25 for the year.

The club runs a range of events and tournaments throughout the year, some internal for members only and some external for visiting players. These include the Tyrone Open Championships, the OLTC internal doubles league, American Doubles, the internal singles box league, junior tournaments and cardio tennis. We also run social events and club fundraisers from time to time.
This is a pre-arranged doubles league that runs throughout the autumn/winter and spring/summer season. Matches are arranged by the coaches and take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays. You will be matched with players of similar ability to ensure a fair and enjoyable game. Players must register for the league at the start of each season. If you miss your chance to sign up or can’t commit every week, you can still get involved as a sub for players who are unable to make their scheduled matches.
A fast and fun fitness-based tennis session with lots of running to get the heart pumping, and a chance to hit lots of tennis balls too. Classes are arranged loosely by ability so there’s something for everyone, from beginners to advanced. A great way to improve fitness and meet new people. £5 per session, pay as you go – email email@example.com or send a message to the club WhatsApp to join a session.
American Doubles is a round robin doubles event where players are paired at random. Courts are tiered and at the end of each timed round, the winning pair moves ‘up’ to the next court or stays on if they are already on the top court. The pair then splits up to be joined by new partners, and another round is played. Prizes are awarded to the players who win the most games overall.
Club night takes place on Tuesday nights from 7-10pm and Friday nights from 6-8pm at times when the internal doubles league is not being played (i.e. during the summer months). Club night is open to all members and the standard of tennis is mixed – players can arrange their own games on the night. The format is doubles; play a set and then rotate. Stay for one game or the whole two hours, it’s up to you! A club night specifically for beginners or new players can be organised when required.
The box league is a singles league where players must arrange their own matches at a time that suits them. You will be placed into a ‘box’ with 4-6 other players of similar ability. All players in the same box play each other before an agreed deadline. The player that wins the most matches will move up to the next box, and the player who wins the least matches will move down to the box below, then the cycle repeats.
