Social Tennis

On most Sunday mornings, members drop in for informal mixed social tennis, giving  new Club members the opportunity to meet other members, and join in friendly doubles games. This usually runs from 10.00am to 12.00pm. This is played under a simple maximum 5 game doubles format with everyone swapping round doubles partners after each match. It is not unknown for some to head off for Sunday brunch afterwards!

Monday evenings are a chance to also play mixed social tennis from 6.30pm until 10pm, format as above.

In addition there is a retired Ladies group (with occasional invitation to one or two men!), who meet on a Wednesday throughout the year for social tennis between 10.00am and 12.00pm. As above, a simple 5 game doubles format. The social context is usually followed up by a get together for sandwiches and drinks afterwards!

These social sessions consist of players from various grades and ages, but are always played in a light-hearted atmosphere. Prospective new members are always very welcome to drop in on any of these sessions and see if the club is for them.
