Play

Teams

The club has 4 adult men’s and 4 adult ladies’ teams competing in the summer leagues, plus several junior teams and teams for winter leagues and veterans.

If you wish to be considered for a team, then:

  1. Contact the captain (or coach) to signal your intention to be considered for a team.
  2. Attend weekly practice sessions, where you will be able to gauge your level by playing team members.
  3. Make yourself available for the fixtures.

League rules dictate that once a player has played twice for a team, he/she cannot play in a lower team.

Tennis Practice Sessions

Men’s practice sessions take place on Tuesday evenings, from 6pm, while ladies’ practice sessions take place on Wednesday evenings from 6pm

Session Format

Men’s Night takes place every Tuesday from 6pm and Ladies Night every Wednesday from 6pm. All playing members are encouraged to turn up to practice on Tuesdays and Wednesdays to mix in and play sets of tennis with your fellow members. Where and when occasions allow a representative from the Tennis Committee will seek to organise members into standardised pairings for the purpose of team practice and players development. The aim of this is to promote match practice for team players and potential team players, while also allowing social tennis for those not interested in playing in teams.

Match Practice
 
From April 1st 2018, Men’s Night (Tuesdays) and Ladies Night (Wednesday) will consist of organised match practice for ALL adult members. We have set-up two new WhatsApp groups so that members can inform the team captains each week that they will be coming along to Men’s/Ladies practice. This will allow the captains to arrange and try out pairings in preparation for team matches. It will also provide a mechanism for members to climb up through the ranks of the teams. Some members have already been added to the groups but we encourage all playing members to do so - please contact the captains to be added.
