Maintenance

Thanks to all who participated in the Spring maintenance campaign and got stuck into weeding and painting and putting up the screens. The courts are looking great and have just had a regular moss treatment. We are very happy also with the upgrades made to the path along the side of court 3 and the much improved car park and access road. As ever, we are indebted to Clive Hodgetts for all his hard work.
