Invite your friends for a fabulous night!

Official Open Day – FREE day of tennis – ****DATE CHANGE***** – Now held on Saturday 3rd November 2018 – official launch our 2018/19 season

Due to the wet weather and conditions of the grass courts, our annual Club open day had to be moved to Saturday 3rd November 2018 from 12pm. We want to make sure the courts are at the perfect condition before we begin our season. Some members are currently meeting on Saturday’s for social play from 1pm on the hard courts (all welcomed) and should the warmer weather allow for the courts to be played prior to the official Open Day, then we will begin to play on our amazing grass courts. Open Day is our main membership day so please tell your friends and encourage them to join us for a day of social tennis, BBQ and festivities where they can enjoy the club facilities and culture before joining as a member on the day they wish. Also on this day, Fair Day will be held literally down the road between 1pm and 10pm, so why not make a day of this and enjoy some tennis in the afternoon and head over and enjoy the Fair Day activities in the evening.
