General Information

For those attending coaching and Junior Club sessions:

  • We do not always have access to the clubhouse during these times, and so it's important that everyone brings a drink and suitable clothing, as it can get cold or rain unexpectedly.
  • In hot weather, children should wear sunscreen and hats.
  • Appropriate clothing and trainers should be worn at all times.
  • We have a number of small racquets to lend younger children, if necessary.
  • Please try to be on time for every session.
  • We cannot be responsible for children outside their tennis sessions.
  • If a child is to make their own way home, we need to know this, otherwise please try to be on time to collect them.
  • Parents are asked to remain on site during coaching sessions.

The Tennis Club has a code of conduct, and everyone involved is asked to sign up to it before children and young people are left. The Club Children's Officers are Stephen Leach (07980 742513) and Fiona Gouk (07762 903489).

Rosemary Masefield's Adult Coaching Group is on Mondays at 6.30pm (May – until end Sept). If you're thinking of getting back to tennis after a break, this is the place to start. It's £5 a time for members, £6 for non members. Contact Rosemary by email (via our Contact Us Page) if you're interested in joining the group or to confirm times.
