Organised Club Sessions

The Club is keen to provide opportunities for members of all ages and abilities to participate in organised tennis sessions.  In addition to booking courts for private use or for lessons, members can participate in the following sessions by contacting the relevant organiser or coordinator listed below.

EVENING TENNIS ROTAS
Regular evening tennis sessions are organised throughout the year on weekday evenings and take the form of a published rota listing members scheduled to play on a particular evening.  These sessions involve doubles play and the different evenings are roughly aligned to Member’s standard of play.  Each evening has its own organiser but members interested in participating should contact Lloyd Smith who is the overall coordinator for these rota evenings.

MONDAY SOCIAL TENNIS
An open session runs from 13:00 to 15:00 on Mondays. The event is open to Club members of all abilities and aims to provide regular tennis play.  It is also an opportunity to socialise between games, meet other members and make new friends.  Players of all abilities are welcome and the session provides an opportunity for beginners and improving players to play against more accomplished members to gain experience of court positioning and to improve their tennis skills and abilities.  Members interested in participating should contact Audrey Goodworth who organises this session.
