Annual Tournament and other things

The annual club tournament is scheduled to take place on Saturday 27 June at 2pm (should last about 3 hours). We will endeavour to accommodate people who turn up on the day, but it would help a lot if you could add your details to the tournament database if you can make it (and delete them if you subsequently find you can't) -

The courts are getting busy now as the evenings lengthen. Can I therefore please remind members to delete bookings if they are not going to be able to make it and also to not to book a number of sessions ahead?

Club rules (see link below) techically state that you should book for a maximum of two hours and that you should not book another court before your original one has expired. I would welcome feedback on this (or any other aspect of the rules or Club in general) as some people do book two ahead and I can see the benefit, epecially if you are trying to play more than once a week.

If you are looking for people to play against, or wish to make yourselves available to play, you can put your details on the contacts list - available from the same section of the website as above -

I hope you are all enjoying the courts and have remembered to renew your membership subs for the year ahead.

Rules -

Friday, 5 June 2009


We are running tennis coaching sessions on 4 consecutive Thursdays starting Thursday 11 June.
Session One: 7-8pm suitable for beginners and intermediate
Session Two: 8-9pm suitable for intermediate

Just turn up on the day and pay £5 for one hour. As we want to give as many people as possible the opportunity to join the sessions, you will be limited to a single (one hour) session each week.

The Club is subsidising these lessons to encourage participation.

Remember that new Membership Fees became due on 1 June, and the code for the door has now changed.
