About Duffield Tennis Club

Duffield LTC is a vibrant club with around 500 members. Situated just north of Derby, it offers some of the best facilities in Derbyshire, with seven 7 all-weather courts, excellent changing rooms and a comfortable bar and lounge.

The club is registered as a Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC). It is owned and run by its members through an elected committee.  As much of the management and operation is carried out by volunteers, we save on costs and can offer very good value to members. 

The clubhouse is shared with Duffield Squash Club, who make their gym facility available to tennis club members. Joint membership is an option. A tennis/squash liaison committee is responsible for taking decisions which affect both clubs.
