Welcome to Downshire


Welcome to Downshire Tennis Club - We are aiming to develop a club where communities come together.

Our small village club of 100 members in 1994, has transformed into the largest playing membership in Ulster, with an average 500 members over the past 10 years. Due to our continued growth we have recently developed our facilities, whilst keeping our family ethos of volunteering to serve the club, welcome new members and help them integrate into the Hillsborough community.
