The Club organises open mixed-ability Club play sessions on Tues evenings from 7-9pm and Saturdays from 2-3.30pm.
Clubplay is particularly important for new members and beginners. It provides an opportunity to meet with other members in a friendly atmosphere with no pressure to win or play at a high standard. Beginners and new members can gain confidence and learn the rules of tennis and etiquette as well as making new friends.
Experienced and better players must show patience and understand that when they come to clubplay they are expected to play with beginners and weaker players. It is important for the weaker players to play with good players if they are to improve their game. Our Club started in 2008 with 8 members and most of our recruits had not played tennis before. The standard of play has improved exponentially since then and our league teams are beginning to make an impact. Guidelines and etiquette for clubplay are posted on the noticeboard at the courts and also on this page (below).
Competitive playing group
On Thursday evenings 7-9pm and Saturdays after 3.30pm priority is given to competitive tennis (ie for the more experienced and team players). Less experienced players who want to improve their game are welcome to come along to the competitive sessions, and the club coach will advise any member who might want to make this step.
