About Us

Suffolk’s premier Racket Sports & Hockey Club.

Ipswich Sports Club is the only independent Racket Sports & Hockey Club of its kind in Suffolk, and widely regarded as one of the best in the region.

As an inclusive, member-owned Club, we encourage and inspire one another. We nurture and develop skills for leisure and competitive play, from junior to senior, beginner to professional.

By members, for members

As a Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC), we thoroughly believe that sport should be accessible to everyone, and openly welcome people of all ages, levels, abilities and backgrounds. Together, our community of members make our Club what it is – a friendly and inclusive sports Club.

An enviable success story

Our origins span some 120 years, but Ipswich Sports Club as our members know it, first started when the Tennis Club opened its Henley Road gates in 1947. Over that time, we have changed shape and size to become one of the UK’s most renowned, independent, competitive Racket Sports and Hockey Clubs.
