Booking, Floodlights and Teams

This page gives you more information about facilities that you can take advantage of when you become a member of the tennis section.

Court Booking

Members are allowed to book courts up to 2 weeks in advance subject to availability. Matches, social play and coaching take precedence. Click here to go to our court booking service. You will need to register. If you have any issues please email Rob Parnell at robert.parnell1@btinternet.com

Floodlights

Floodlight tokens are available for purchase from Rob Parnell (0793 470275) or Jim Nicholson (074415 265183)

Each taken costs £2 and provides lighting for one court for half an hour.

When you want to use the floodlights put your token in the floodlight box slot in the pavilion for the court you wish to use. A red warning light at the side of the court will appear 5 minutes before the timer runs out.

Please leave it at least 5 minutes before trying to add extra tokens to a court. That will help prolong the life of the floodlight bulbs.

Teams

We enter ladies, mens and mixed teams in the local South West Essex Tennis leagues. Matches generally take place on weekday evenings. Our home matches start at 7pm.

We also enter various teams in the Esssex league. We currently have a mens senior team, and several veterans teams: two mens over-45s, an over-55s mens and an over-40s ladies team. These matches take place on weekends, with our home fixtures usually starting at 10am on Saturday or Sunday mornings.

If you are interested in playing in one of our teams please contact either our Mens captain David Taylor or our ladies captain Amanda Nicholls.
