Courts at Tilford and Rushmoor Tennis Club
There are two courts available at Tilford and Rushmoor Tennis Club. Both are hard courts and were resurfaced just a few years ago. The surface provides an excellent bounce and is periodically pressure washed and line maintenance performed.
The courts are locked with a combination padlock. Members are supplied with the combination upon joining. The combination is changed annually on 01 May and all paid members are emailed the new number.
Courts do not need to be booked, however if both are in use and more players turn up, you are requested to vacate your court within 30 minutes. Please see the club rules for further information. In addition, there are the following regular sessions:
- Every Monday from 09:30 to 10:30 - adult coaching using both courts
- Every Saturday 1.00-4.00 pm one court only in use
Courts open from Wednesday 13th May
