Blackheath Lawn Tennis Club has existed since 1885 and is a thriving and successful club situated in the Rectory Fields area of the Royal Borough of Greenwich in Southeast London. It is part of the wider Blackheath Sports Club incorporating tennis, rugby, squash and cricket.

The Club is an unincorporated association, managed by a Management Committee which is appointed by the members of the Club in accordance with the Club’s constitution and assisted by a Head Pro, a Club Secretary and a team of volunteers.

Club facilities include a courtside pavilion, a main clubhouse bar, and 11 tennis courts: 4 porous acrylic hard, 4 artificial clay and 3 grass courts. All hard and clay courts have floodlights paid for by members at time of play through a contactless payment facility located within the courtside pavilion.

The Club operates an online booking system for both hard and clay courts at all times and these are bookable on an hourly basis, 7 days in advance, via the MyCourts member website. Grass courts are open from May to September on a turn up and play basis, with a manual booking system using a whiteboard.

With eight LTA registered coaches and a new Head Pro, James Charman, the Club offers a full coaching programme from basic to performance and county levels, catering for all ages from four year olds to veterans.

The Club runs a wide variety of competitive teams in both the Kent and North Kent Leagues including mens, ladies, mixed, veteran and mid-week teams. These are subject to team selection and attendance at Monday evening Team Practice. There is also an annual Club Open Tournament, a Club box league and various other competitions throughout the year.

Socially there are three Club social tennis sessions a week on Wednesdays 18.00 – 22.00, Thursdays 10.00 - 12.00 and Sundays 14.00 – 17.00, and other ad-hoc social events including club suppers, quiz nights, barbecues, wine tastings, coffee mornings and overseas adult tennis holidays. The Club also has a small online branded clothing line in association with Winning Margin Intersport and a ball and tube recycling initiative.
