We are a progressive and friendly tennis club based in Stalybridge, and since 1922 we have been run by members for the benefit of the members.

Alternatively, if you would like to have an informal look around the club at any time (and maybe try out our courts by hitting a few balls) please ring Dennis Hilton on 07587 148579.

We also have several Open House events coming up. Why not come along and see what Priory has to offer?
