Welcome to the website of the best kept secret in North London.

Our Head Coach, Sally Bentley was voted Middlesex Coach of the Year in 2016 and then again in 2018. The Avenue Tennis Club was nominated and voted Middlesex Club of the Year 2018!

In recent years The Avenue Tennis Club in Finchley Central has been transformed, with new playing surfaces, a brand new custom built pavilion and three floodlit courts, which now have an extended curfew and can be used until 10pm in the evening.

Three newly surfaced courts were funded by Middlesex Tennis and Sport England. The new specially designed junior court was completed thanks to further funding by The Lord Mayor's Fund, and thanks to The London Marathon Charitable Trust, we have three floodlit courts.

Flood Lights
With our new lights you can enjoy all year round tennis, so there could not be a better time to join.

Tennis Shoes
Tennis Shoes
Naturally we are anxious to maintain the condition of our new court surfaces and so insist that everyone using the courts wears proper tennis shoes. Tennis shoes are flat bottomed, so trainers are not suitable as they have chunky grooves on the bottom that damage the surface.



Car parking at the club
There is no parking available at the tennis club but it is easy to park nearby and you can find full details on our Contact Page.
