Social tennis takes place throughout the year. These sessions can be extremely popular with all courts in use. Members simply turn up and mix in with others for a friendly game of doubles.
During very busy sessions a "short set" policy is operated. (Details are posted in the Clubhouse.)

This takes place each year around
August / September culminating with a Finals Day and lots of cake! Open to all adult members it covers a range of singles and doubles events in different age and gender categories.
2017 saw the introduction of a 'Fast Fours' format with sudden death knockout on a single day, meaning that no rounds need be played beforehand.
As the title implies, this session is not for the fainthearted and will have you sweating in no time!
The idea is to get some exercise and make your heart work a little bit harder than normal but the level of intensity at which you choose to participate is entirely up to you.
It is currently run by Jenny on Saturday mornings at 10am (price TBC). Her contact details 07855 237650.
