LTA Junior Tournaments: We are proud to be hosting some junior LTA Tournaments at our club. Players are from many counties: Herts, Essex, Middlesex and sometimes further. These are held on Sundays - dates can be found on our EVENTS page. There is one this Sunday for U14 boys 11-2pm and U14 girls 2-5pm and others at later dates. Please come and along and bring your juniors to watch this great standard of tennis.
As you may have noticed we have poles and tape up trying to stop people cutting across the grass and taking mud onto the courts. We are still discussing what to do with this area- watch this space!
The netting at the back of the courts next to the football club car park will go back up very soon now that there is less risk of icy courts in the mornings.
Following feedback, Martin is looking into putting one extra fence panel back each side of the viewing fence so that it's not quite so wide.
We are aware of the holes (as usual) in the track leading to the tennis club- it's an ongoing problem which we share with the football club. The plan is to refill the holes but we cannot afford a permanent solution.
