Raphael Park Tennis Club was formed in the 1990's as a non profit community based tennis centre, which would be open to everyone, no matter their standard or age, at a very affordable cost. There are no membership or joining fees, just turn up and play, by either hiring a court or joining in one of the social sessions. Equipment can be borrowed from the club if you do not have your own. Players of all standards are welcome to join in the social sessions, and there are beginner and improver squads run continuously throughout the year.
Individual lessons can be arranged with one of the coaches if required. If competition is your thing then the club has teams in a number of the Essex and local summer and winter leagues, for mens, ladies and mixed doubles. Also as part of the Tennis Foundation e-park initiative, local box leagues and match play competition can also be arranged. Based in the picturesque setting of Raphael Park, Romford the club has 12 all weather courts, which were relaid in 2005 and a small clubhouse for socialising after the game and having that well earned drink. At one end of the courts is the recently refurbished childrens' playground, and alongside the courts is a large open parkland, ensuring their is plenty to do for those not wanting to play tennis.
