Welcome to Court18 Tennis

    Court18 was founded in 2018 when Alex Allen and Dan Shepherd created a coaching partnership at Gerrards Cross Lawn Tennis Club. Gerrards Cross LTC represents one of the flagship traditional tennis clubs in the South East of England and boasts a total of 18 tennis courts as well as a large clubhouse and bar area. We have five artificial clay courts, three artificial grass courts, seven grass courts, two hard courts & one mini red court. Court18’s ethos is to provide a world class coaching programme that offers the opportunity for players of all levels to participate in tennis and enjoy the sport.
    We specialise in creating a coaching programme that allows us to tailor each player’s weekly tennis, to their specific needs. We run sessions from beginner tennis through to our performance section: whether you are looking to learn a new sport from scratch or take on competition and compete at the highest level, Court18 will take you through that journey. Court18 also run a schools programme as a starting point for budding young tennis players in the local primary and junior schools. This programme is fundamental to the continued growth of our sport and our linked tennis club Gerrards Cross LTC.
