The Club

Rother Meads Tennis and Games Club was founded in 1922 and includes Rye Lawn Tennis Club and Rye Squash Club. Situated beside the River Rother, in the rural outskirts of Rye in East Sussex, it is an amateur sports club, run by its members, and welcomes players of all standards and ages.

Rye LTC is one of the leading tennis clubs in South-East England and enjoys a prominent place in UK amateur tennis. It has eight immaculate grass tennis courts (playable May to September) as well as a number of all-weather courts. The Club organises an extensive Programme of Events each year, which includes the well-known Annual Invitation Tennis Tournament in August and a large number of other events for both adults and juniors.

The Annual Tournament attracts players from many different countries, including entrants from both Harvard and Yale universities in some years. Rye LTC's annual programme also includes tennis matches against other leading clubs in the UK, participation in the Sussex County and Wealden leagues, and matches against teams from several tennis clubs in Continental Europe and Eire.

The Club has two squash courts and actively promotes squash for adults and juniors. There is also a small gym as well as facilities for table tennis and croquet. Coaching is available for both adults and juniors in tennis and squash. 

The constitution of the Club is such that any surplus of income over expenditure must be retained by the Club for the Club's benefit and that, in the event of the Club being wound up, all assets must be applied for approved sporting or charitable purposes. The Club is classified as a Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) by the Inland Revenue. 

The Clubhouse has recently been extended, rebuilt and refurbished to provide new and improved facilities to all members, guests and visitors, while retaining and enhancing the pleasant atmosphere of a traditional English country club.
