Playing

A number of club sessions are run weekly for all types of tennis. They are open to players of all standards, but complete beginners may wish to consider having some coaching first.

At all other times, members can use the the courts as they wish, but must book a court using the on-line booking system.

One or two of our four courts are used for coaching at various times in the week, but the other courts are available.

Courts

Courts may be booked by adult and full junior members using the on-line booking system. Match fixtures take place during both summer and winter seasons (usually 2 courts for each match) and take priority over other sessions.  These are booked out in advance by team captains.

Club sessions are free to members, but small charges are made to cover the cost of balls and floodlights (when needed).

Floodlights are available on all four courts and can be used until 10pm each day. The cost is £4 per hour per court and tokens (£1 each) may be bought from committee members.
