Tennis News - clay court inspection

The Tennis Comittee has undertaken a ‘Diag Technique’ of our clay courts with the French Tennis Federation experts this week.
They will be back for more tests at the beginning of winter but these preliminary tests have shown our courts to be in a much better state than we originally thought. The main message from the FTT was that they need to be watered as much as possible and preferably after every match.  Great news!
