Court Availability

Competition tennis has precedence over social tennis.

If all courts are occupied then doubles games should be given priority.

Members may bring guests to play social tennis. A fee (listed later) must be placed in the box attached to the door of the Clubhouse.

Except for competition play, tournaments and selection trials, members must provide their own tennis balls.

New and used balls may be purchased through the Club.

Upkeep and Maintenance

Note – Courts 1&2 and 3&4 do not need watering. (Cassic Clay courts)

Courts must be bagged after each set. Once again, bagging must be from fence to fence, not just the playing area. After rain, only puddles (not sheets of water) may be mopped up.

Courts 5&6 must be wet before being used. When watering courts, water fence to fence, not just the playing area. Watering to back fences is of particular importance as this area receives a lot of wear.

 

Never play on frosty courts. They must be thoroughly watered and allowed to drain before play can begin. When arriving for a game after a frosty morning, be sure to water thoroughly even though the frost has thawed.

Dress

Correct tennis attire must be worn at all times. Only approved tennis shoes may be worn (not ripple sole or bare feet) and players wearing incorrect types of footwear will be asked to stop playing.

Public Use
The public is permitted, at the times designated, to hire the courts through the Court Booking Officer, please see Public Hire of Courts.
