New Court Maintenance
The Club has invested a large proportion of its funds in re-surfacing all three courts, one with artificial grass and two with synthetic clay - many past and present members have contributed to the cost of these courts, it is now our responsibility to look after them for existing and future members. Please read the notes below about maintaining the court surfaces and ensure that the instructions are followed whenever you use the courts.
Please note that the clay on the synthetic clay courts will initially be quite loose and deep; there needs to be a period of approximately two to three weeks of play on these courts to allow the clay to settle into the pile of the carpet underneath. This means that the bounce on the clay courts may be uneven, this is normal until they have settled. The contractor, Trevor May, will come back to the Club in 4 - 6 weeks’ time to check the levels of infill and adjust them accordingly. Some of the ‘wind breaks’ may not be in place when we start. This will be fixed in the next week or so.
Given the on-going situation with COVID, the same rules as before will be in place:
• The Clubhouse should only be used to visit the toilets or access the first aid equipment
• Players must provide their own balls except for organised social tennis
• Social distancing must be maintained at all times
• Players should sanitise their hands before and after entering the court
Booking of courts must be done before playing - this is now a Club rule. We all look forward to welcoming you back on court - PLEASE download and read the link below regarding details on court maintenance.
