welcome

Welcome

Founded in the 1930s, the Benenden Tennis Tournament takes place annually in July in the grounds of Benenden School in Kent, by kind permission of the Headmistress.

Over the years, three generations of tennis players have enjoyed friendly, competitive tennis on the eleven all-weather courts in this beautiful setting.

The tournament has gone from strength to strength, raising thousands of pounds every year with all proceeds going directly to predominantly local charities. Benenden is a very sociable tournament and families come for the day, enjoying their picnics under the trees.

There is a wonderful atmosphere; home made cakes and hot and cold drinks are served in the tea tent and there are exclusive Benenden Tennis Tournament t-shirts, caps & bottles on sale, a racquet-stringing service and an exciting raffle, with prizes donated by local companies. All proceeds go to charity.

Dates for Junior Tournament: unfortunately cancelled

Dates for Adults Tournament: 25th-26th July 2020
