Courts reopen after Lock-down 3.0!

Following the latest Government and LTA Covid guidance our 3 courts can now be booked,  by members,  for singles  and Doubles play.

Please use our online court booking system via the tab above (guidance at here) to ensure there is a court available for when you wish to play and to avoid turning up and having to wait for a court which is against social distancing guidelines. 

There are still strict guidelines in place which include:

  • To bring and use hand sanitiser before and after play
  • maintaining 2m social distancing at all times

Please also refer to the LTA guidance:
