Please would members ensure the two sets of sliding doors and the entry door and main gate are locked when they leave the clubhouse. Also, please help us keep it all looking nice by tidying away after you’ve had a drink or snack. Thanks.

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
