Welcome to Netherwood Tennis Club.

Netherwood tennis club is a small, private and friendly club with a focus on tennis and good times.

Nestled in a quiet, wooded neighborhood in Plainfield, we’re a quick drive from Summit, New Providence, Berkeley Heights, Clark, Westfield, Cranford, Fanwood, Metuchen, Mountainside, Rahway, Scotch Plains, Warren, Bound Brook, Middlesex and more!  We’re about 12 minutes off route 78 and 8 minutes off route 22.

We have 6 perfectly maintained Har-Tru courts, which is the surface of choice for most players:

  • Lower impact, less fatigue and 85% less injury.
  • Har-Tru is 10 to 15 degrees cooler to play on than a hard court.
  • Har-Tru offers avid players the ability to play everyday without the joint jarring stops that are common on hard courts.
  • Our drainage system is so efficient the courts are ready for play just 10 minutes after a shower.

We open mid to late April and close October 31st, from morning to dusk.

Netherwood’s History

Over 100 years of great tennis and greater friendships

Since its opening over 100 years ago, Netherwood Tennis Club has been serving up a love of tennis and friendship that has touched five generations in the Plainfield area.

While our focus is on tennis, it is not the only activity offered at Netherwood.  After a set or two of tennis members often play Bridge, Dominos, and Backgammon.

Social activities also include BBQs, dances, and theme parties. Many will drop by just to watch tennis and enjoy the company of the Nertherwood family.

Netherwood is also home to the Annual Westery G. Horne Scholarship Classic Tennis Tournament, which raises funds for Plainfield High School graduating seniors.

The Courts

Two Watering Cycles Daily

Our courts are typically watered twice per day — at 10 am and 3 pm. The sprinklers run on a staggered schedule starting with courts 1&2, then 3&4, then 5&6.  Our courts are playable about 10 minutes after watering.  Note – the watering schedule may change based on local conditions and weather.
