The club has 7 courts in total, 3 of which have a flexible acrylic surface with the other 4 having top quality synthetic grass. The courts are laid out with a central clubhouse (see aerial view by selecting satellite on the map page and zooming in) with the 3 acrylic courts on one side and the 4 grass on the other. The large panoramic windows of the clubhouse offer viewing of all courts from both the bar lounge and main hall area. All of the courts are surrounded by a dense 4 metre high hedge which gives perfect visibility for striking the ball along with increased protection from the elements on windy days for both players and spectators.
New telescopic floodlights have been installed and are fully operational across courts 4 – 7. These state of the art Floodlights cost approximately £150,000 and with court resurfacing the club has invested over £250,000. To aid this development the club received generous grants from Cleanaway and grants and loans from the LTA. These lights are almost unique as there is currently only one other club in the country using this system which offers 1st class artificial light for tennis. This will mean Tuesday league and Friday Social tennis can continue right through the winter as will the usual week night practices, squads and private bookings. Full details here
