Club members can use the courts at any times outside club sessions (unless a match is being played) Court availability can be found under the bookings page, but booking is advisable at busy times. At evenings and weekends court space is limited so booking is essential. Please use the court booking diary in the clubhouse to reserve a court though an online booking system is being developed. A coloured 'peg board' system is in operation at all adult club sessions except Thursday mornings and Tuesday evenings, to ensure that games are 'balanced' as far as possible. Keys for the clubhouse may be purchased from Trixie Leyshon for £5.00 (refundable on return).
Members should refrain from organising summer club tournament matches on both senior and junior club sessions exept for the Winter Tournament which can be played on a club session as it is only one set. Priority will be given to club session players during these times. If court space is required, members may be asked to stop a match at a convenient point
There are regular group coaching sessions for both members and non-members on Tuesday (beginners) from 9.30 to 10.30 a.m., Thursday (intermediates) from 9 to 10.15 a.m. and Friday (beginners) from 9.15 to 10.15 a.m. (contact Stephanie Pugsley on 07711 523292 as some sessions are at Legends in Thong Lane). In the summer months there is also a Cardio Tennis session on Mondays from 9.15 - 10.15 (in the winter this takes place at Legends).
In addition, individual coaching can be arranged with our club coaches Michael Littlemore and Roberto Melchiorre who are all licensed LTA and PTR coaches. Please ring Michael Littlemore on 07789 207338 if you are interested.
Non-members (including those attending adult group coaching sessions) may come and play on Thursday mornings from 10.15 a.m. at £5 per session.
Members are welcome to bring visitors to the Club including Club sessions (if of an appropriate standard).

If appropriate, after 5 visits a visitor should apply to become a member. Members and their guests must sign the visitors' book on each visit.
