The club boasts a range of outdoor court surfaces to suit all types of playing styles and abilities. From May to September, we are privileged to have four grass courts overlooking Birmingham Botanical Gardens (an extra two courts are currently resting). Our two all-weather synthetic grass courts (right) were resurfaced in August 2020 with a two-tone green Playrite Matchplay, which are floodlit for year-round play.

The two Italian clay courts are fitted with temporary practice lights to enable social play in the evenings.

The two shale courts include a hitting wall for those who would like to practice independently.

Court maintenance

To keep our clay and shale courts in the best condition possible, we ask members to please sweep the courts after each use. Brushes are available courtside. Ideally the courts should be swept in a spiral manner, rather than from side to side. This technique starts from outside the tramlines (including behind the baselines), working your way into the centre. This ensures that the clay is spread back on to the court rather than out to the side.
