Club Rules

Court Bookings

Bookings are to be made in hourly sessions on the hour. Bookings for the following week may be made by entering names on the form posted on the court notice board. Bookings may need to be restricted, at peak times, to two sessions per week. Members may play on the courts without booking but they must leave the courts immediately if anyone who has made a booking comes to play, or after one hour if any other member is waiting to play. Please note that special events will be arranged from time to time. These will take priority, including club league matches. Special events will be advertised in advance.


All members will be entitled to a key to the courts on payment of a refundable deposit of £5 per key.


Children under 12 cannot play without adult supervision nor can they be issued with court keys. Adults (19+) have priority on the courts after 6pm and on weekend bookings.

Use of Courts

Members must treat the courts with respect and must leave them tidy and in good order. Note, in order to increase the life of the nets, please lower after use. Noise should be minimised to avoid nuisance to neighbouring property. Members are responsible for ensuring that the courts are locked when they leave them. Members are responsible for providing their own racquets and tennis balls.


Visitors may play on the courts if they are accompanied by a Club member, however, they are restricted to four sessions per year. A Club member is responsible for their behaviour and for ensuring that they pay £3 per person (£1 for children under 15), in advance, to any committee member. Members of the Glebelands Sports Association who do not belong to the Club may use the courts, without being accompanied by a Tennis Club member provided a payment of the visitor fee has been made in advance.


Members are expected to wear suitable sports clothing compatible with the sport and in particular wear suitable tennis shoes.

Infringement of Rules

Any infringement of the rules could, at the discretion of the committee, lead to expulsion from the Club without refund of membership fees. Anyone found damaging the courts will face immediate expulsion from the Club.

Acceptance of Club Rules

It is a condition of membership that Members agree to abide by the rules.
