An opportunity too good to miss
The Cranleigh Grass Court Junior Tennis Festival is the brain child of our Tournament Director Johnny Barr. Frustrated by the lack of opportunities for his and other children to play junior summer tennis tournaments in surrey and the underwhelming level of fun at tournaments, added together with the desire to bring a fun junior grass court tennis event back to the heart of Surrey – this opportunity was too good to miss.

Enter the many cardio and coaching fun play sessions
Our idea is that The Cranleigh Tennis Festival should be a junior summer tennis tournament in Surrey for 1 week every August on grass courts where children 8 – 18 years of age not only just come for their match and go home, but instead they come with their parents for the day and play in the tournament as well as enter the daily cardio, coaching and fun play sessions alike………and make friends for life.
There is even daily play & tennis cardio sessions for the parents.

Pop Up Tennis
The Cranleigh Grass Court Tennis Festival is effectively a ‘pop up’ tennis event for children of all ages and standards held for 1 week every August on Cranleigh Cricket green set in the heart of the quintessential English village of Cranleigh Surrey – surrounded by some of the most fabulous shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs.
For 82 years there was a tennis tournament in Cranleigh and our aim is similarly to make people return every year to Cranleigh, and make it a ‘must attend’ Junior Tennis Tournament – together with a vibrant tennis festival environment for all the family.
Our Tournament Referee Alison Battista (Surrey Referee of the year in 2019) is vastly experienced in Junior Tennis in and around Surrey, and shares our passion to get as many children playing tennis as possible. Please do come and support us for this year’s grass court tennis festival 4 – 9 August 2019 and don’t forget to tell your friends!
Our Tournament Director Johnny Barr is a former tennis pro and has represented both Scotland & Great Britain. He is a proud supporter of British Tennis and passionate about encouraging children to play tennis at all standards from a fun ‘knock around in the garden’ to club, county and international level.
