Who can play when?
Tuesday evening is club night. We play doubles (one set) then swap around. Just turn up from about 6.30pm onwards and wait by the clubhouse. When the people playing have finished their set you will hear someone shout ‘Anyone waiting?’ and you will be able to mix in. Those who play often stay around afterwards and have a drink at the bar so it’s a very sociable evening. If you are a beginner it is best to check with James he thinks you are ready to mix in on Tuesday evenings. The ability range varies and club members will always try to make the pairings as equal as they can.
In addition to Club Night on Tuesday , Monday and Friday night is Junior night, Wednesday is Men’s team practice and Adult coaching, and Thursday night is Ladies team practice and Adult coaching.
