On most Sunday mornings, members drop in for informal mixed social tennis, giving new Club members the opportunity to meet other members, and join in friendly doubles games. This usually runs from 10.00 to 12.00. This is played under a simple maximum 5 game doubles format with everyone swapping round doubles partners after each match. It is not unknown for some to head off for Sunday brunch afterwards!
In addition there is a Ladies group (with occasional infiltration by one or two men!), who meet on a Wednesday throughout the year for social tennis between 10.00 and 12.00. As above, a simple 5 game doubles format. The social context is usually followed up by a get together for sandwiches and drinks afterwards!
These social sessions consist of players from various grades and ages, but are always played in a light-hearted atmosphere. Prospective new members are always very welcome to drop in on any of these sessions and see if the club is for them.

At certain times the courts are also available for casual use by non-members of the Tennis Club, as long as they are Culcheth Sports Club Members, and on payment of court fees, which are detailed below.
Please note: Children of Culcheth Sports Club Members, who are under 15 years of age, are not allowed on the courts unsupervised by an adult.
The courts are available for use by club members during normal club opening times. For non-members of the club, courts can be hired for a court fee of £12.00 per court per hour and this should be paid in advance to bar-staff behind the main bar. This special arrangement is limited and visitors who use the courts regularly will be asked to join the club. Juniors who are not members are not allowed to play on the courts.
