History of the club

Ridgeway Tennis Club was founded in 1922 and is a sub-section of Ridgeway Sports and Social Club which was formerly called Ridgeway Memorial Institute. This was founded after World War 1 on land left in trust to the village.

The tennis club played on grass courts that were sited behind Kent House, adjacent to the current pavilion, and continued until the Second World War when it understandably ceased to function.
