It’s been dry and we’ve even seen some sunshine. The weather forecast for the weekend and next week is looking pretty good too. Finally! And we all know that when it’s dry and the sun shines, our Club is at its best. Do pop in and visit!

Court Bookings

When the weather is good, it’s even more important to book your court. Whilst you can still just turn up and play, if there’s availability… if the court you’re playing on has previously been booked by other members, you must vacate that court if asked by the Club’s staff or by the members who have booked. Even if other courts are available. All bookings take precedence. Please do take a moment to refresh yourselves on our Club’s rules for when you can play on the grass. Also, we ask that recognised tennis wear is worn on court and in particular your shoes are appropriate for grass play. Please book your court HERE.

If you’re bringing guests or are not a tennis Member, please ensure you pay the appropriate fees or upgrade your Membership. Membership checks will be taking place so please don’t be offended if you’re asked! 

Do take a look at our tournament schedule. We make every effort to ensure Members are able to play whilst we have our tournaments on. But if you don’t book a court, there’s no guarantee you’ll be able to play. 

Poolside Kitchen Late Night Every Friday Night! 

With the sun shining, it’s the perfect time to dine ‘al fresco’ and enjoy a bite to eat from our Poolside Kitchen. Our Ladies B team is taking on the Officers’ Club, promising some exciting tennis matches to watch. We hope to see you around this evening, the last food orders will be taken at 8:45pm. And the bar will be open as usual until 11pm. The full Poolside Kitchen menu will be on offer and the specials for today is Steak & Frites. If you’ve not pre-ordered, when the special has gone? It’s gone! The same for next week (14th) and we will be serving Fish & Chips.
