About Oakfield Tennis and Bowling Club

We’ve Got Team Spirit and We Are Family Friendly with Fabulous Facilities at Great Value

We are a small, private club and have been here in Huddersfield, on the same site, since 1911. Our aim is to provide tennis and bowling facilities at great value for people who enjoy social sport, like to be part of a team or just enjoy active time with family or friends.


We also encourage organised school participation with free access to our tennis courts. We welcome Junior members.


We offer open social sessions for both male and female tennis and bowls. If you want to improve your tennis skills on one of our all-weather courts we have tennis coaching available for all ages and skill levels. Our grass crown bowling green is a great place for social, league and tournament matches.

We are a not-for-profit organisation and Limited Company. Our Directors are the Guardians of the club and are unremunerated. Our capital developments and operating costs are funded solely by membership fees, social fundraising activities, public and private grants and donations.

Important Notice

Due to the latest announcement from the Government and the latest LTA guidelines, we will offer tennis on all courts.


Let's keep on sanitising sensibly and we recommend wearing a mask in the clubhouse.


We will maintain the online booking system. Please ensure you book your court or jack in advance except for organised weekly social sessions and matches.

Stay safe again everyone and enjoy your game!

Philosophical Thoughts before Booking!

The cunning competitor plays on the other party’s guilt. Continuously praise your opponent’s shots, and you’ll notice how he begins to press. Self-beratement also serves to balance a guilty conscience for being successful and makes your opponent disturbed for upsetting you so. If on occasion you call one of your opponent’s “out” shots “in,” then later on you can innocently call an “in” shot “out” on a crucial play. Practice saying “Good try,” sincerely; then you can call a lot of close shots “out” and get away with it.

Bowling, I like bowling. I’ve been getting into this bowling thing. It’s kinda fun.

Accessibility to Our Club

Here for You

Our policy is to make our facilities as accessible to all as much as we are able to do. We have level access to the bowling green and the lower court via a separate gate. Access to the upper courts has two steps.


Unfortunately, access to the upper part of our very old clubhouse is via steep stairs. However, the lower part is accessible which incorporates the male and female toilets, the changing room  and the shower. 

All membership applications have to be approved by the Directors. We never discriminate against applications based on ethnicity, age or gender. Our policy is to firstly ensure that we have the capacity to accept your application and secondly that we feel that you will enjoy your membership with us and we are the right club for you.

We have a simple guest policy for members to invite others to pay to play and view the club.
