The Club is wholly owned by its members, and is run on a not-for-profit basis. We have 3 macadam courts. We also have a well-equipped club house where you can stop for a chat and refreshments:  There are female and male toilets.

Day and evening club sessions mean you can just turn up and play without a partner and electronic court booking means you can book to play with friends or family any time too. We ahave an effective WhatsApp group so you can check if players are attending club sessions even during inclemant weather. 

All year round play, balls lights and use of the club house is included in your membership fee, itself highly competitive.
