Adult Club Nights take place on Wednesday nights from 6pm to 10pm – starting on Wednesday 31st Mar 2021 and finishing on Wednesday 29th Sept 2021.
A second club night will also take place each Friday of the month throughout the tennis season. The same rules apply but use 2 courts between 6pm and 8pm.
Any adult members may come along as long as they are of a reasonable playing standard (i.e. no beginners as this will spoil the enjoyment of others – see coaching page). If you are not sure, members of the committee will assess your level.
New club balls for each court are provided on most Wednesday club nights and so individual members are not permitted to play their own games or use their own balls.
Used balls will be used on Friday clubnights.
Normally up to five games of mixed, ladies or men’s doubles or a full set (i.e. first to 6 games), depending on numbers, are played before changing around. This is to avoid players sitting out for too long. Sudden death is played at the second deuce.
A Peg Board system will be used with the following rules:
On arrival find your peg
Place at the bottom on left hand side of the board
You can’t jump the queue and play as soon as you arrive
When your peg gets to the top choose 3 other players from the 5 below
Be ready to play as soon as a court becomes free
Once the game is finished remove peg and replace at the bottom of the queue
Keep track of your peg at all times
Singles games may be played on club nights only when the numbers allow.
Membership shoetags (Mauve for the 2021 season) and keys will be available on Wednesday clubnights from Sue Griffin or Jeff Beckett from 18:00 to 18:30 only.
