About the club

HBS Lawn Tennis Club was founded in 2008 and is based at the tennis centre at Hitchin Boys School. The centre itself was jointly funded by Hitchin Boys School, Sport England, and the National Lottery. Floodlights were installed with generous support from the LTA. The club is managed by uPlay Sports Management and are supported by the club committee. 

We are fully inclusive, with a strong emphasis on junior coaching. There are also ample opportunities for adult and junior social and competitive (AEGON, Datchworth, Hot Rackets, Orchard League) tennis. We are very proud to have achieved Tennis Clubmark accreditation in only our second full year of operation, and aim to deliver a full coaching, tournament and match play programme across all age ranges.
