Court 1(Pavilion side) and 2(Centre) are always available to Members when not reserved for Club events (see section on Court Availability under ‘Courts & Coaching’).
Court 3, farthest from the pavilion, is referred to as the ‘Parish Court’. This court can be hired by the public for £4 per hour. See court ‘Availability section’ for hiring details or Tennis court public hire document listed below.
The floodlights meet the LTA recommendation for County standard and are controlled from inside the pavilion via switches accessed from the coded locked cabinet. All members can use the floodlights at no extra charge and full instructions are posted beside the cabinet. Warning! The floodlights automatically turned off at 10 pm.
