Club Guidelines


The object of the Club is to provide a safe and enjoyable place for adults and children of all ages and abilities to meet and play tennis.


Court Bookings:

  • Members may book the court by using our online booking system.  Click on 'Bookings' on the toolbar on the left and click on the LTA/ClubSpark link. 
  • Members bringing a guest to play at the Club, should pay the appropriate guest fee of £2.50 per person per hour, which must be paid via the online booking system. 
  • Non-members may also book the court through the online system and will be required to pay £10 per hour court fee.
  • Parents wishing to book a court for children under the age of 16 should contact Sarah Vertigan (07939 241025).
  • All players should note that refunds will be at the discretion of the Committee if you cancel a booking later than 24 hours before the allocated time slot.

Court Etiquette:

  • In order to preserve the court surface, it is essential that correct tennis footwear is used at all times.  Proper tennis shoes or trainers with non-marking soles must be worn - no black soled shoes.
  • Once play has finished and the court is to be vacated, players are responsible for taking away their own litter and any surplus tennis balls they have used and re-locking the court.
  • At no time may drinking glasses or any other breakable drinking vessels be taken on the court.
  • No chewing gum should be left on or around the court.
  • No food should be consumed near the court area.
  • Members are expected to maintain a high standard of language use at all times.
  • It is not necessary to lower the net after play so there is no winder left on the court.  If you find that it is necessary to adjust the net, the winder and measure can be found inside the clubhouse, where they should be returned after use.
  • Parents/guardians are responsible for ensuring that juniors properly use and take care of the court and clubhouse.
  • The court is out of bounds to bicycles, roller blades and dogs.


  • The clubhouse is available for the use of all Members and all Members will be given the code for the padlock on joining the club.
  • Members are encouraged to use the clubhouse as required but it would be appreciated if they would leave it tidy and securely locked afterwards.
  • Toilet facilities are available in the Parish Hall, the key for which is located inside the clubhouse.  Again, you are asked to make sure that the Parish Hall is securely locked before leaving.

Icy Weather:

  • On occasions, the court may still have frost on it where the clubhouse shades the court.  You should NEVER attempt to play on the court in this state as it contravenes our health and safety standards. 

Club Liability:

  • Members or guests leaving unattended vehicles, rackets, clothing or other property at the club do so at their own risk.  The club shall not be responsible of any loss, damage or injury.


  • Subscriptions are due on 1st April and they should be paid before the 'grace' period.  Anyone who has not paid by that date, will no longer be able to use the court as the booking system will not allow them to book the court.
