Latest News

  • Courts 5 & 6 rebuild Courts 5 & 6 are now complete. As part of the program to standardise the playing surfaces, the base has been rebuilt with porous ashphalt under a Syn Clay carpet.This allows much better drainage than the previous surface. The court booking system will now allow for bookings on these courts.Please keep in mind that there will be some "bedding down" of the surface, so they will not be at their optimum for some time. Please bag the courts all the way to the fence both before and after play, there is only one bagger at present, another is on order. Brooms and rollers are available for sweeping lines.
