Appropriate sports clothing is expected to be worn as this will enable you to play to the best of your ability. It is recommended that you wear trainers specifically designed for tennis as this will help you to avoid injury and also ensure that the courts aren’t damaged.
We operate a court booking system for members as well as Pay & Play (£10 per hour outside, £15 per hour in the bubble).
Club Nights are on Tuesdays and Fridays, and the ’7 before 7′ rule is applied to players on Courts 7 and 8 i.e. if there are players waiting, a total of 7 games are played. After 7 pm however, players are to play a short set, tie-break at 5:5. Club night players do not have priority on Courts 9,10 and 11 until 6 pm in the summer and 7 pm during the winter months. We also have an Advanced & Intermediate Club Night on Tuesdays which starts at 8pm.
Members may play with non-members, but we would ask you to collect a visitors fee (Adults – £5.00; Juniors – £2.50) and pass the money over to our Administrator Natalie. Please note guests are limited to 3 visits per year.
There is currently no charge for the use of floodlights (cost are built into membership fees). The astro court floodlights are switched on in the cupboards on the path running alongside the lower courts. The hard court/bubble floodlights are switched on in the boxes by the entrance. If no-one is waiting for a court, members should switch off the lights when they have finished their match. The lights will automatically go off at around 10pm as this is a local requirement from the council. If they are not actually switched off at that time they will re-ignite in the afternoon and we will go on to a higher electricity tariff.
Access to the hard courts/bubble is via a pin code which you will receive when booking the court.
Keys can be purchased for £5 for the grass court pavilion and courts and the tennis pavilion from Kath McConnell.
