Social Tennis

What We Offer

Monday Evening Social Tennis

'Club Night' - from 5.30pm onwards every Monday evening.
Our Club Night is a friendly evening of tennis.

Format:

  • Depending on numbers; short rubbers of five games duration with plenty of rotation.
  • Court allocation drawn at random at the start of every round.
  • An opportunity to play against a wide variety of abilities, styles and experience levels in an informal atmosphere.
  • Matches may be expanded as the evening moves on and people start to leave.
  • Takes place every Monday and continues throughout the winter months under the floodlights.

Open to all members; as well as new players as a 'taster' session.

-- American Mixed Doubles --

Twice every month, our Club Night features an American Mixed Doubles tournament.
This is a friendly variation on the social tennis setup and usually takes place on the middle two Mondays of the month; from 5.45pm onwards.

Format:

  • Short mixed doubles rubbers consisting of four gamaes with your partner and four alongside the opposite partner.
  • Thus, an opportunity to score between zero and eight points in each round; depending on the number of individual games won.
  • Numbers are usually restricted to 16 participants. This means there will be five rounds of matches played with nobody needing to sit off.
  • Pairings are decided in advance to try and ensure a reasonable spread of ability; so in the first instance, newcomers will be allocated a good player as a partner.

Sunday Morning Social Tennis
10.00am - 1.00pm
Open to all members

Sunday Mornings are both an extra opportunity for fun social tennis; and are also a reserve session if Monday evening's weather is poor. It's a chance to earn yourself an extra Yorkshire Pudding for Sunday lunch!

These sessions run on Sunday mornings all year round unless the dates clash with Junior League Tennis for which notification will be given in advance. They have a 10.00am start ideally (but we also accept latecomers) and follow a similar format to the regular Monday evening sessions; except take place in daylight.
