Members are advised to check the outdoor court booking sheet before commencing play as booked matches take preference at all times.
No matches of any type may be played between 1:30 – 5 pm on Saturdays and Sundays when the Adult Mix-in takes preference over all courts (apart from the Juniors’ Courts 6 & 7 ).
On occasions when all courts are in use adults, Club organised sessions and approved matches take preference to Juniors (apart from Courts 6 & 7). Doubles games take preference to singles.
Juniors are allowed to play on any courts at any time but should vacate the court if a senior player wishes to use it.
The juniors concerned are permitted up to 30 minutes to complete the set of tennis they are currently playing.
If the designated junior courts become available they should move across at the end of the next changing game. Adults should allow other adults 30 minutes to finish the set they are playing before claiming the court.
Members playing singles should invite those waiting to join them for a doubles set or relinquish the court.
On occasions when juniors’ courts may be required for a senior match alternative courts will be allocated for junior use.
