Court booking system

The booking system is currently open & available.

We are continuing to use the court booking system for the time being, so please book your court in advance. From time to time, the system will show 'no available slots', as we limit the number of bookings allowed per month in order to manage costs. However, in this case, you may continue to play at your preferred time without booking.

Please be courteous to other players if the courts are busy and note the Club Rules for play at busy times: if members are waiting, a match shall consist of one set (with a tie-break). On completion of the set, players shall vacate the court and await the next free court. Singles will not be allowed when other players are waiting, other than for an organized Club competition.

Tournament Finals

With the exception of the Men’s Singles - delayed again due to injury - all the Club tournaments have now been completed.

Details of the Winners, and the line-up for the remaining Final, can be found on the Matches page.
