The Cranford Clay Courts Club, located on Springfield Avenue in Cranford, is currently accepting new members for the 2019 Season.
The Club offers a long outdoor tennis season, with the courts usually open from April into December in recent years, depending upon weather conditions.
In addition, the club enjoys the distinction of being the only outdoor tennis club in the area with a lighting system for night play on the Club’s well-maintained three har-tru (soft) courts.
The culture and communal aspect of the club offers members the somewhat unique opportunity to “find a game” without needing to bring a partner, particularly on weekday and weekend mornings. There are several social events throughout the season, Monday night open mixed doubles and clinics on Sunday afternoons at 4pm.
Membership in the Cranford Clay Courts Club is open to both resident and
non-residents. For more information in joining or participating in Team Tennis,
