Welcome to Edgbaston Archery & Lawn Tennis Society

Grass courts are open!

Subject to the British weather, the top four grass courts are now open for booking. As they are one of the defining features of our beautiful club, we are reliant on our members to keep the surface in the best condition possible. We therefore ask you to adhere to the following ground rules. Thank you in advance for your help.

  • Please book courts in the usual way via the website or mobile app
  • Please do not play on the grass courts if the surface is wet
  • Please wear appropriate footwear (i.e. flat-soled tennis shoes with no aggressive tread pattern or sharp edges)
  • If you notice that you are marking the courts, or damaging them in any way, please stop play.

Please also familiarise yourself with the current Covid guidelines to ensure the club remains a safe and enjoyable environment for all our members and visitors.
