The HSTC is an LTA Registered Venue which means that it meets all the requirements of the LTA as being a great place for everyone to play safely. The Centre is actively supported by the LTA in our development ambitions which simply would not have been possible without their help and assistance.
Besides being a great place to play we also aim to be a FRIENDLY club as well so if you would like to know more about what kind of a club we are perhaps a look at the club news items or alternatively come down any time. Take a look at the Organised Sessions page and see the court schedule for when social sessions take place.
