In Q2-13 the Cocks & Hens Tennis Club was granted planning permission on the field behind Cambridge Rugby Club for:
- 8 hard courts (2 of them floodlit)
- 4 soft courts
- a small club-house with changing facilities and toilets
The club now needs to get Lawn Tennis Association funding before beginning to build but it is hoped that facilities will be available to anyone who wishes to join the club from 2015 onwards.
In the meantime, some village houses possess tennis courts and there is an unofficial Grantchester tennis competition each summer.
