Certain times are set aside for “Club Playing”. This is available to all adult members and involves all players mixing in with each other. During these times members are asked to join in with others rather than playing in pre- arranged groups.

There are regular “turn up and play” club sessions available for all adult members. These sessions run on a Monday 10am, Wednesday 10am and Sunday 9am with an additional session on Thursday evenings in the summer. These friendly club sessions are an excellent way to meet other players.

Teams

Horam league - There is a men’s, ladies’ and mixed pair in each fixture, and each pair just plays its opposite number, best of 3 sets. Matches at home and away commence at 6.30pm due to necessity to finish in daylight. It is an ideal way to start playing in matches, improving your focus and consistency as well as your tactics, striving to win but playing in a friendly ambience. And it’s a way of putting something into the club as well as getting something out of it.

If people would like to get involved then please contact Rob Jones 07795 463686
