Welcome to The Forty Five Club


The Forty Five Club was founded in 1974 with the aim of drawing together veterans tennis playersThe Teams 1 (men 45 and over, women 40 and over) so as to provide them with wider opportunities for playing tennis competitively or simply for pleasure. The club has grown to its present size of 600 members which includes a number who live overseas in many different countries. The 45 Club offers a variety of tennis activities that are different from what is available in most tennis clubs. In addition to matches against other clubs, we organise one day tournaments and overseas tennis trips.  Some of these are to take groups to play in tournaments, others are to take parties of 45 Club members on tennis holidays in interesting places. The 45 Club is NOT an alternative club but an additional club for its members.  If you would like to find out more or to enquire about membership more details are on the "About Us" page or click here.

The Forty Five Club does not have its own premises. The Queen's Club in Baron's Court has kindly provided it with a formal address and the Forty Five Club Annual General Meeting and Cocktail Party and an annual Christmas luncheon are held there.  Oxshott Tennis Club hosts us for our home matches.
