DUE TO COVID-19 AND GOVERNMENT AND LTA GUIDANCE, CLUB SESSIONS ARE CURRENTLY RUNNING WITH A DIFFERENT FORMAT. PLEASE REFER TO EMAILS AND COURT BOOKINGS FOR UP TO DATE DETAILS.
These are mix in sessions where all those who attend rotate and there is no need to book or bring a partner. Tennis balls are provided by the club for these sessions.
Club tennis takes place on Saturday from 2pm – 5pm and Sunday 10am – 12pm for all “full” members, on Thursday from 6:30pm – 9:30pm for “full” and “standard” members, and on Tuesday from 9am – 11am for “full”, “standard” and “midweek” members.
Attendance at any club session assumes a minimum standard of play, where every participant can serve and rally competently from the baseline, but are also comfortable to volley at the net. This applies to Tuesday morning and Thursday evening sessions.
Weekend club play is of a higher standard. It is expected that any participant is able to maintain a rally in a match situation, is familiar with basic positions for singles and doubles while developing consistency, footwork and tactical awareness. It is also intended for those who volley competently, will move up to the net on short balls, possibly serve and volley and are able to return a second serve with a view to moving up to the net.
