Junior Membership

For Summer 2022, we will be offering junior members coaching at the Junior Club on Friday afternoons.
These are included in the 2022/23 Junior membership subscription, will run from May to July and are subject to sufficient numbers registering for Junior Club.  After July, follow-on junior coaching will be offered for the advertised fees, subject to sufficient numbers. 

Coaching will be provided by Tennis Edge.

Rusty Rackets Offer

New adult members taking up a full years membership for the first time will be offered a free introductory coaching session or three groups sesssions with one of our coaches, to get into the swing and help introduce you to existing members. This offer is not offered with the winter memberships - those adults joining after 1 September can still participate in the adult coaching sessions at the published prices.

Coaching

Chris Stocker and his team at Tennis Edge provide Adult, Junior & Individual or Group coaching sessions, Junior Club coaching and Cardio Tennis sessions at the club.  Courses will be available during the summer and are subject to course fees - for further details see our Tennis Activties pages. Private coaching sessions can be arranged by contacting Chris Stocker at Tennis Edge - details on our Contact page - please note that if Chris does not answer your telephone call immediately, he may be on court coaching and so ask you leave a message or email him, so that he can get back to you as soon as he is free.

Tournaments

A full programme of tournaments have been arranged for 2022 - for details see our Tennis Activities page.

Club Court Dress Code 

Clothing

Suitable safe & serviceable sports wear should be worn by members or players on court, preferably recognised tennis wear.

Footwear

All members or players must wear recognised tennis shoes on the grass courts. Tennis shoes are rubber soled and have smooth uniformly patterned soles without raised heels, spikes, studs, cleats, bars or deep ribbing. Trainers are not permitted on the grass courts in any circumstances as they cause damage to the grass surface.

Tennis shoes should preferably also be worn on the hard court. Trainers may be worn on the hard court, but are not recommended, as they are not designed specifically for tennis and do not provide the same support and grip as a tennis shoe.
