Tennis start-up hits the spot!

With half a dozen sanitisers, 50 feet of barriers, a lot of signage and some last-minute hedge-cutting from Des … the outdoor tennis start-up worked!

42 players on seven courts across three playing sessions proved that the Club CAN make outdoor tennis safe to play in today’s extraordinary conditions.

The Club aims to have the courts open daily from 10.00 to 19.00 in 90min slots, to comprise 1 hr play, 15 mins to sweep and leave the courts plus a 15 min buffer before the next session … last booking 17.30.

Book as normal on the MindBody smartphone app or via this website
