Good luck

Court Doors
Please remember and remind non-members that you should never walk into a court unless those inside are aware you are coming in.

You should always knock when the time to start is up using the side of the racket to make sure the noise is loud enough to be heard.

NEVER walk in as this is dangerous.

On a brighter note the committee have ordered the new glass doors for courts 3-6 and these should be fitted by the end of October.
