Where to play
Matches may be played anywhere in the extended Henley and Marlow area including Hambleden and courts and clubs around the Oxfordshire villages. You may also play on private courts, by invitation of the owner - and provided the location suits both parties.
Players should agree between themselves where they want to play - it is of course helpful to be as flexible as possible. When playing as guest in clubs, be careful to abide by club rules! We are very grateful to the clubs listed below who accept guests or in some cases let two non-members hire courts.
Please note, in some of these locations matches will only be possible where one or both players are members. We have tried to give as up to date information on club policies as we can.
