The Council and Tennis Committee have carefully discussed and considered the current allocation of courts for Thursday night Club Play.
Following several weeks of monitoring the numbers attending have exceeded 30 players on a regular basis, the Council have agreed to take a temporary measure to make another court available which will still leave one court free for members to book. Club Play is used to welcome new members to the Club and introduce them to other players, as many people join the Club and don’t know anyone else. It offers a welcoming and friendly environment and is used as a stepping stone to create new friendships and new league players for those wishing to play competitively. Therefore Court 4 will now be used for Club Play from 7.00 – 9.00pm, but this will be monitored on a weekly basis dependent on numbers attending and it is likely that we will not require the extra court during the summer months.
Any members who may lose their weekly slot are more than welcome to play as part of Club Night and join in the fun – especially next Thursday 17th May which is Fish and Chip Night! Any changes to times and court usage will inevitably affect someone, but the Council and Tennis Committee have given this careful consideration and are endeavouring to be as fair as possible to all involved.
Thank you for your consideration in this matter
