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 often use these sessions to give pairs who play in matches the opportunity to play together. Usually this takes the form of the first hour dedicated to getting people playing in their pairs and playing opponents of a similar standard. All members are still welcome to attend.
Four courts are set aside for these evenings, including on match nights.
NOTE until recently, due to covid, numbers for these events were resricted but this no longer applies so anyone wishing to join in just needs to attend.
Should any person require clarification on the above, please text or call Jack Grummitt for Men's Night on 07707 881450 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.
