The sun image may be a bit optimistic… but in spite of the mostly gloomy April we hope you’ve been playing loads of tennis, and let’s hope May will be kinder and we’ll all play even more.  There’s a lot going on….

CLUB TOURNAMENT:  All the details are on the board in the clubhouse conservatory.  Enjoy your matches, and please keep results coming in.

TEAM TENNIS:  The Summer League season has just begun.  If you’re interested in playing team tennis and are not yet involved, be sure to let us know (just reply to this email).

Our friendly and inclusive Club Sessions are thriving.  Everyone is welcome.  They’re on TUESDAYS FROM 5.30 ONWARDS and SUNDAYS 1.30 – 3.30.  And on THURSDAYS FROM 5.30 ONWARDS there are Team Practice Nights for all members keen to play team tennis.

All the details of the great coaching on offer are on the website: and

In spite of all the activity on court, the timetable is still very simple.  If ever in doubt about when courts are available, just check on

Coming up at half-term (week beginning Monday 29 May) is our annual Henmans Junior Tournament sponsored by Freeths, a great event now entering its second quarter-century!  Please note that the courts will be busy each day that week until about 5 pm, but will be free as usual each evening, and Club Nights are unaffected.
