The Northumberland Club is passionate about giving everybody the opportunity to play tennis and since 2013 the Club has been part of the Disability Tennis Network.

The Northumberland Club aims to increase access and opportunities for disabled people who want to play tennis with the values of, fun, respect, inclusion and courage being paramount.

Tennis, like all sports, provides more than just an opportunity to play. It can help to improve mobility, co-ordination, fitness and provides interaction with others both on and off the court. The Northumberland Club has an ambitious plan 
to offer tennis opportunities to people who have:
  • Hearing impairment
  • Visually impairment (VI)
  • Wheelchair users
  • Learning difficulties

The Club has already established itself as home to the North East Visually Impaired Tennis Club (already established as the UK's largest VI Tennis Club) and sessions led by Coaches and volunteers are held most weekends.  
If you or someone you know may be interested in trying visually impaired tennis, please contact; for further information or check out their website here.
