We are delighted to announce that we will be resuming club play sessions on a Thursday evening from 5.30pm (until the light goes) and Sunday mornings from 10.30 - 12.30.  These will start again on THURSDAY 1 April 2021 However please note the following changes made as part of our Covid 19 contingency plans:

Register Interest for Club Sessions

If you want to attend the club sessions (or think you might at some point) please text 07734748286 with your full name and the days you are likely to join in e.g. Thursday OR Sunday OR Both.   If you wish to register additional  people within your household please include the additional names and relationship in your text and see additional note below about registering for play** (e.g. Jane Doe, John Doe, Miranda Doe Family BOTH)

There will be two WhatsApp Groups created - one for Thursdays and one for Sundays.  You will be added to the appropriate ones.  We suggest you then mute or turn off notifications to ensure you are not bombarded.

Register Attendance at a Club Session

Prior to attending a club session please send a short message (here, playing or x) to the appropriate WhatsApp group to "check in" for that days session. ** Please only do this once you know you will definitely be playing.  You DO NOT need to send a message to let us know you won't be there.  

These WhatsApp groups should not be used for chit-chat or anything other than registering for Club Play.  If you want to chat with other members and organise play outside of normal Club times you can join the "Big Barley Tennis" group.  To join this please text Jan on 07850 097673 with your name and BBT.
