From Thursday 5 November, we have to close the club again due to the second national lockdown coming into effect. This affects both the clubhouse and the courts, in line with government and LTA guidelines.
Therefore, please do not go to the club for any reason, but rest assured that we will be keeping a keen eye on the LTA guidance and will reopen as soon as we are allowed.
In the meantime, please stay safe and don’t hesitate to contact the committee should you have any questions.
It’s been great to see so many members at the club since we reopened in May and we know that lots of our members have really enjoyed participating in the summer tournament, for which we owe a big thank you to Darren Plank and Stuart McTiernan who organised a great event. More updates are as below.
Wednesday night social trial
We are now moving into the next phase of trying to return to normal and will soon be trialling a club mix-in on a Wednesday evening, starting on 2 September.
We are still unable to open the bar as having reviewed the current LTA and government guidelines, the committee has agreed that the work required to make the bar Covid-19 secure far outweighs the benefits of opening it. The kitchen is also still closed.
We can now confirm that the floodlights can be used, but please clean the clubhouse door handles and sanitise your hands after entering and leaving.
Court booking system
In addition, from 1 September, the court booking system will be changed to reflect our membership structure as follows:
We're sorry to say that we have had to postpone our Presentation Night at the Apollonia on 10 October. It has been rescheduled for 23 October 2021, coinciding with the 120th Anniversary of the club, so we need to make sure that’s a good one!
As always please continue to follow the LTA guidelines and make sure you don’t come to the club if you are suffering from any coronavirus symptoms, so that we can all carry on enjoying ourselves on court.
Please contact the committee if you have any questions.
Following the change in Government guidance and in line with LTA guidelines, we’re pleased to let you know that some play for members can start at the Club, but the Clubhouse remains closed until further notice.
Playing members must comply with the following:
This situation will be kept under review in line with any published advice - any changes will be advised to our members.
Following Government and LTA advice, the clubhouse and courts are closed until further notice.
We hope to see you all again when restrictions are lifted. Stay healthy!
In light of the Government’s advice regarding the current Coronavirus problem, we have decided to suspend all club organised events with immediate effect, this means that there will be no Social Play on a Tuesday or Thursday morning, Wednesday evening or Saturday afternoon and we will not be opening the bar at any time.
All R&D group coaching sessions are also suspended with immediate effect, if you have any questions about this please call Darren (07960 071478).
The courts will remain open for you to play on, if you wish to, but you will need to bring your own tennis balls (to ensure no transfer of virus on the balls). Please continue to follow government advice whilst at the club by washing your hands and not shaking hands at the end of a match, as is our normal etiquette, elbow bumps or hands in prayer position are good alternatives.
We will continue to follow the government and LTA advice and will update you if things change, in the meantime stay healthy and safe.
- HWLTC Committee
There are a few important dates that we wanted to make our members are aware of:
On Sunday 7 July, we held a glorious Finals Day in which 10 champions were crowned kings and queens of the HWLTC courts on a super sunny day. There were three nail-biting three-setters in the ladies' singles, men's singles and mixed doubles, and, of course, countless glasses of pimm’s.
Well done to all involved in the tennis, bar, food and organising! Take a look at some of our pics below, and view all photos and winners from the day on our Tournaments page.
The Middlesex Summer Tennis League started a couple of weeks ago and all our six teams have played their first matches of the Season.
Having supporters at the matches make all the difference to our teams, so please support them in the matches to come when you can! You can view match dates on our calendar, adult teams competition page and direct on the LTA website.
Best of luck to our teams!!!

From Monday 28 January onwards, Harrow Weald LTC will be using a new online system for booking courts. This is because Book-It is ceasing to exist at the end of January as the LTA is terminating support for it.
In order to use the new system, members should login and register to the Club's area of the LTA ClubSpark system. All current members should have had an email invitation to register and can start using it straightaway.
