Midweek Tennis

It looks like Alert Level 2 is here for a while. We are playing Midweek tennis as usual, but with the extra precautions of either using the QR code or signing in on entry, using the hand sanitiser and maintaining social distancing. Like before, if you are feeling unwell please stay home.

Our summer season will commence on Thursday 3 September (provided the weather is fine) with a fun tournament, spot prizes and pot luck lunch. Everyone is welcome, and you can bring a friend. During our summer season we will begin play at 9.30am each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Further details about events during the summer season will be posted soon.
