Court lighting:  

Floodlights for Courts 1 – 8 can be switched on inside the clubhouse using the key (keybox code is the same as the court gates code): turn the ‘lock' next to the number of the court you wish to use.  

PLEASE SWITCH THE FLOODLIGHTS OFF from inside the clubhouse after use, even if they’ve already gone off automatically, otherwise they come on again in the morning.   

Please report any floodlight or other faults to the Grounds Secretary: 


Old/unwanted tennis equipment:  

Balls are recycled; please place in the reycling bins on the verandah. 

Rackets in reasonable condition can be donated to children’s tennis charity Give It Your Max: please leave in the box in the clubhouse. 

Please take rubbish such as ball tins, lids and ring pulls with you after play.
