Dress Code

Club rules state that players must observe a “predominately white” dress code. Members are asked not only to comply with the literal interpretation of the words but also to recognise the intent that they dress appropriately for tennis rather than for jogging, training or football. The dress code does not apply to Junior Members.

Tennis Balls

Tennis balls are provided for League Matches and Senior Club sessions. Ex-match balls are used for Junior Club Sessions. Members must use their own tennis balls for knockout matches and their own arranged games. Tins of the type being used in matches and Club sessions are available for Members to buy at the Club’s discounted rate.

Coaching

The Club’s Coach can provide individual and group coaching for adults and Juniors.
