Welcome to Northern Aces Tennis Group


Club information

The aims of the Group as set out in the Constitution are to "To provide the means for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) persons to play tennis". We hope, however, that we do much more than that, and that people can come along to play and improve their tennis in a friendly, relaxed and sociable atmosphere.

 The Group runs weekly tennis sessions at one of our partner venues - Sportcity Manchester, Urmston Tennis Club, Bolton Arena or David Lloyd Trafford - most weekends (check "Weekly Tennis / Session Times" tab for details). There is usually no need to book - you can just turn up on the day (apart from pre-organised special events - again, check "Session Times").

If you are attending for the first time, send us a message so that we can try to arrange for a committee member or other Northern Acer to welcome you.

The group organises many internal and open tennis tournaments and special events, including our well-established GLTA-sanctioned event.  Group members also frequently travel elsewhere in the UK, as well as overseas, to compete in the many GLTA tournaments held world-wide (see http://glta.net/tour-schedule for details).

We also have many organised social events each year, including our annual awards night, spring walk, quiz night as well as participating in the annual Manchester Pride celebrations.  

To find out more about us, please spend a little time looking at the rest of our website. If you would like to come down to play at one of the regular weekly sessions or if you would like any further information about the group please contact us via our form or by email at info@northernacestennis.com

Membership runs from April to March each year. By becoming a Member, you will be entitled to reduced playing fees at sessions, as well as at internal tournaments.  Also, paid-up members will be entitled to enter our Wimbledon ticket ballot (subject to "opting-in" as per LTA rules), play in the box leagues and local league teams, plus benefit from our subsidised coaching programmes.

We look forward to welcoming any new members to our group and a big thank you to all our existing members for your continued support.
