Riverside Tennis Club was awarded Clubmark status in January 2009 and undergoes annual 'Healthchecks' to ensure that we maintain excellence. When a sports club achieves Clubmark status, they have met strict standards that ensure a safe and effective management and playing infrastructure is in place. These clubs are excellent places for young people to start a new sport or even for those that want to play to a high level. If you come across a club with the Clubmark logo, it means they have met these high standards.
