About the Tennis Section

Framlingham Lawn Tennis Club (also affectionately known as Fram Tennis) is open to all levels of play and we always give new members a warm welcome.

Run by volunteers - including the Committee - the club is affiliated to the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) as well as Framlingham Sports Club.

Our thriving Junior and Senior sections ensure that our Club Sessions for social play are well-attended, while also providing players for our Fram Tennis Club teams.

Junior Membership includes 15 hours of club coaching from Thursday 18th April through to 1st August but excluding Thursday 18th July. Just £50 for existing members or £45 for new members.

Facilities

The facilities at Fram Tennis include three all-weather courts - floodlit since 1998 - and a tennis pavilion and covered cycle bays. The three all-weather courts were re-surfaced in the winter season of 2002/3 and repainted in 2018.
