Men's & Ladies Night

GLTC offers a Men's Night (Tuesdays 6-8pm) and a Ladies Night (Thursdays 6-8pm) for those members who want match play tennis. 

At the start of the season, team captains will use these sessions to give pairs who play in matches the opportunity to play together.  

Four or five courts are set aside for these evenings, with allowance for match nights. 

Should any person require clarification on the above, please text or call Matty Cooper for Men's Night on 07496 824707 or Jen Abbott for Ladies' Night on 07800 606989


Men's & Ladies Night September - March

At this time of the year the  floodlights need to be used to allow play. The cost of the lights is £1 per half hour. If floodlights are needed throughout the designated two-hour session, the cost per court is £4 and, assuming doubles, the individual contribution should  be £1.  Accordingly, can persons attending these sessions get used to bringing at least a one pound coins.  We use the term 'at least' because play can sometimes encompass more than the designated period and it is best to be prepared.
