Volunteers from the club helped facilities officer, Brian Rodgers, and the contractors First Serve complete the work earlier than expected.

The juniors will be celebrating the end of term with a tournament on Easter Saturday (March 26) followed by a club lunch for all members, after which the adults will play on the new courts.

The junior holiday tennis camps will be running over the Easter holidays on:

Tuesday, March 29 and Tuesday, April 5 from 1pm to 3pm; on Thursday, March 31 and Thursday, April 7 from 10.30am to 12.30pm and also on Saturday April 2 and Saturday April 9 from 10am to noon.

To encourage more children and families to play tennis, fees for children under 16 have been reduced. It is now free for the Under 5s and children of adult members join with a 50 per cent discount. In addition, students’ rates have been reduced by 40 per cent to attract more of our ex-juniors to return and play during their university vacations.

The Spring coaching programme will start after the Easter holidays with the return of the adult beginners’ session combining coaching with Cardio Tennis on Saturday mornings from 11.30am to 12.30pm. Adult Pay and Play sessions continue for beginners to intermediates on Tuesdays from 11am to 1pm and intermediates and above on Fridays from 1pm to 3pm.
