Facilities

The Club has eight tennis courts: 

  • 3 all-weather courts, including 1 floodlit,
  • Five clay courts

The Tennis and Management Committees are also working on making lighting available for courts 8 & 3, although the timing of this is still unclear due to the already extensive works that will be undertaken by the club this Winter. In addition, we are also working on redoing the lines of court 3 to improve safety and tennis experience on this court. We will communicate on this at a later stage.

Finally, your Tennis committee is working in parallel on improving the Tennis coaching experience, especially for the children, with tennis committee members participating in the evaluation of children's Tennis levels, and with the centralisation of all coaching demands to be managed by the club's office in order to harmonise levels within coaching lessons as well as organise events for children. 

Lessons and Coaching

The Club has two coaches who run group lessons for children on Wednesdays (court 3 and 8) and Saturdays (court 8). Private lessons can be organised during the week or on weekend mornings when clay courts are open. Members should reserve their court for this.

See the attached document (below) "Tennis School Schedule 2019/2020".

The 2019/2020 season runs from 16/09/2019 - 20/06/2020

Tennis Court Rules

Badges must be displayed

All tennis players (including visitors) must display their badges on the board during play. While playing, players may not block a subsequent period with their (or another member’s) badge.

Doubles have priority

When courts are busy, singles players should invite, or allow 2 others, to join them.

Proper dress is required

Players are expected to wear proper tennis outfits, with a white shirt or blouse and white socks. Players must wear proper flat-sole tennis shoes on clay courts.

Clay courts must be ‘dragged’ before and after play

Players are required to maintain the clay courts by ‘dragging’ them and, if necessary, watering them before play.

Clay courts must be protected after heavy rain

‘No play’ notices may be posted up on the courts, after heavy rain, or courts may be locked.

Coaching, matches, tournaments

Courts may be allocated for matches, tournaments or coaching at the discretion of the Tennis Committee.

Visitors

Visitors are welcome to play anytime during the week all year round, and on Saturday and Sunday mornings before 12 pm, when the clay courts are open.

Tennis Latest

All good things come to and end and Social Tennis too...

The umpires have ruled that Friday evening Social Tennis must temporarily stop owing  to lack of lack of light and heat over the coming months. Thanks to all who've turned up and made Friday evenings such fun. Social Tennis will resume at the beginning of summer.
