Play general information
The combination of two different surfaces of the nine courts at MTLC allows us to play tennis all the year round, with the exceptions of heavy rains and flooding and snow. The grass courts are in full use between late April and September when the weather is dry. The drainage of the hard courts is excellent and they dry very quickly after rain and are playable for most of the year.
Regular Weekly Club Play - all year round
All members are welcome to join in the Club sessions on Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. These are turn up and play social tennis sessions. Two courts are block booked for these times. All new members are welcome. These sessions help to ensure that everyone gets in plenty of tennis. Competent Juniors are most welcome to play. They are the future of our Club and it we like to see them progress into our Adult teams. See below for more detail on dates and times.
At the times of year when the five grass courts are not in use, the four hard courts are reserved during these times. In addition to these regular Club sessions, during school holidays, there are Junior tennis camps arranged during weekdays and some of the courts will be reserved for these camps. Notice boards and the Club website will provide information regarding times. At all other times, members are free to come along and play on the courts without booking.
