It looks amazing, but we must look after it. A few golden rules to keep the surface good:
Only non-marking tennis/squash shoes to be worn and absolutely no chewing gum, glass tumblers or bottles on court. During the first summer, temperatures may get high so damage to the surface could be caused. If black marks start to appear on the surface, it is important to cease playing immediately and report it to a committee member as the court will have to be closed temporarily. Thank you and enjoy!
The online booking system is up and running. To book a court please go to https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/BoveyTraceyLawnTennisClub/Account/SignUp

Get in touch with Ryan if you would like to join his session although there is currently a waiting list however a new batch of sessions will begin shortly. Everyone is welcome to come along for the Club night which starts at 8pm.
Update from Ryan, our Coach
Ryan has a keen group of players training in his Academy – an LTA initiative to set new standards for player development. Congratulations to Dan Beavis who had a great week participating in The Road to Wimbledon, he’s also training with Devon County Intermediate Squad, and along with Chris Halse, has played in our Men’s A Team this season. Youngers players are training with the County Squad – Freddie Chatfield (Green), Ned Ibbotson (Orange), Oliver Kennedy-Bruyneels (Orange). Congratulations to you all, and, of course, Ryan!
Lesley Woolacott is commencing her Level 3 coaching qualification. She spends Tuesdays at the Club – Ladies session 1-2.30 (£7.50 per session inc tea and cakes!!) and a Cardio session in the evenings. Contact Ryan for details.
Merlin is now assisting Ryan with the Saturday morning sessions, and runs the Sunday morning training sessions for the Mini Red, Orange and Green groups.
Lesley and Merlin are a great addition to the coaching team!
