divbar Welcome to Frinton Lawn Tennis Club

Founded in 1899 as a private members' club, Frinton Lawn Tennis, Croquet and Bowls Club flourished in post Victorian England. Although Croquet and Bowls were original activities of the Club, it is for tennis that the Club has become world famous.

Edwardian England saw Frinton as its playground and the well heeled and famous flocked to the town.
Winston Churchill, Douglas Fairbanks, Gladys Cooper and Robert Morley all bought houses in the town, and the tennis club was the main social and sporting venue.

Next to Wimbledon, Frinton was regarded as the major venue in the tennis calendar - offering 22 grass courts to its members visitors - and a social standing on a par with Henley and Ascot. As a tournament venue, Frinton has attracted the world's leading tennis players for over 7 decades.

Hobson’s Choice
Tuesday 18th September 2018

Matthew Townshend Productions brings Hobson’s Choice to Frinton Lawn Tennis Club on Tuesday 18th September 2018.

A delightful revival of one of the great classics of British Theatre, Harold Brighouse’s Lancashire comedy Hobson’s Choice.

This new production moves forward in time from 19th century Salford to 1958. Rock and roll has arrived with the youth revolution just around the corner, but in Henry Horatio Hobson’s shoe shop, Queen Victoria might as well still be on the throne.

Their wireless and secret treasured record player keeps the three girls tuned to the hit parade, but when older sister Maggie leaves, taking Willie, the bootmaker with her, the younger sisters Vickey and Alice feel free to make their own escape.

John D Collins, best known for TV’s ‘Allo! ‘Allo! and a stalwart of Frinton Summer Theatre, plays Hobson. Specially written songs by upcoming musicians Ben Goble with the Lockerbillies (Glastonbury 2017) echo the sounds of the time, from Skiffle to Presley and from Doris Day to Jerry Lee Lewis. Plus, the brilliant Lucy Robinson (Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason), provides the voice for Mrs Hepworth.
