The club will have ‘Play before you Pay’ for the month of July. Notices will go out soon.

You are welcome to invite prospective players along in the month of July to play tennis for free.

Club Lamps . The committee are in the process of applying for a grant to cover the costs of new lamps to be installed on all courts.

Court Grooming. This work will be carried out within the next few weeks.

Part of this process includes having the courts sprayed for moss treatment and prevention.

We will advise when a confirmed date for maintenance will occur. The committee will also put up notices on the courts when this happens as it is not advisable to play for the remainder of the day once the courts have been sprayed. This is for your safety, reason being to avoid slipping on possible wet surfaces.

Clubrooms – Venue hire. Our lovely clubrooms are available for hire to the public and to members. Please contact a committee member if you would like more information.

The hireage rates are going to be reviewed at the next Executive meeting as recent feedback received indicates our hireage fee is too high.
