Lockdown 2

As we go into our second lockdown, the Government has decided that tennis can no longer be played until further notice.

We will therefore close and lock the courts from Thursday 5th November.

We will notify all members when the courts become available for use as soon as possible.

In the meantime please keep as safe as possible.

Weekend Court Booking System

In order to book a court at weekends please email

or call Clive

All bookings, once confirmed, will appear on the calendar at , so please check there for court availability first.

The “guidelines” for the system are:-

1) Home matches will take priority followed by coaching and club sessions.

2) Bookings for weekends only, 0830 to 1630

3) Bookings available in half hourly slots, up to a maximum of an hour for singles and two hours for doubles.

4) Bookings open on Monday (after 0800 !!) for the following weekend.

5) If someone has been unable to book a court one week then, if they say they would like to play the following week, they will be given priority.

6) If a court is not pre-booked normal priority of play will apply.

7) Please let Clive know if you cancel so he can remove the booking from the calendar.

Finals Day

Well done to everyone who played today and yesterday.

In a high quality Junior Final, Daniel triumphed over Artie in straight sets. Well done also to Charlie who beat Arjun yesterday in an exciting three set match for third place. Congratulations to all our Juniors who played the tournament with great spirit and sportsmanship.

Yesterday, Cathy beat Nona to retain the Ladies Singles title, and today Ross also retained his Men’s Singles title beating Paul in straight sets.

In the doubles final Jane and Nick beat Alison and Paul in straight sets

It was a great weekend of tennis as we managed to salvage something from a summer that has been greatly disrupted, and players and spectators also enjoyed a socially distanced glass of wine at the end

Special mention also to Clive and Ashford TC for securing the loan of an umpire’s chair, and to Nick, Tony and Ross for their umpiring.
