Acorn LTC at a glance...


The club was formed around 1950 on land, presumably with lots of oak trees, in Whitchurch Lane; now occupied by a school.

When Acorn moved to its present home, they brought the club house with them — it has certainly passed the test of time!

As you can see Acorn are also trend setters in the tennis fashion world.

The club is not just about tennis.

A team under the name Acorn Antiques appeared on BBC TV defeating the famous Eggheads! At our last Christmas dinner, our ladies team celebrated winning the league. At Acorn we received a surprise visit from Santa! (Guess who?)

Charity Work


We normally organise an annual charity handicapped doubles tournament with a barbeque; and surely the best raffle in tennis thanks to very generous donors.

We have raised funds for many charities (connected to a member or member's relative) including Cancer Research UK, British Heart Foundation, Parkinson's Society, Prostate Cancer UK and the Lynda Jackson Macmillan centre (Mount Vernon Hospital).

In 2021, we hope that we will be able to hold the event in aid of St Luke's Hospice and the Macmillan nurses at St Mark's/Northwick Park Hospital.
