About Oakfield Tennis and Bowling Club

We Are Family Oriented with a great Team Spirit with Great Facilities at Fantastic 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 families and people who enjoy social sport, like to be part of a team or just enjoy active time together or with friends.


We encourage organised school participation with free access to our tennis courts. We very much welcome Junior members of all ages.


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 announcements from the Government and the LTA guidelines, we will offer tennis on all courts and the bowling green will be open for the full season.


Let's keep on sanitising sensibly. Members may also wear a mask in the clubhouse.


Due to the popularity of the online booking system for tennis courts, we will keep the system active for all tennis members. Please ensure you book your court  in advance except for organised weekly social sessions and matches. Bookings are no longer required for Bowling, although matches will always take precedence.

Stay safe 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.
Theodor Saretsky

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.

    We are seeking to further upgrade our facilities for the community by resurfacing one tennis court and obtaining a new mower! Due to the loss of income through the covid pandemic we have used much of our reserves. We are therefore seeking funding partners.
