PLEASE NOTE - before every session, courts should be watered and afterwards the court and lines should be swept. To maximise the health of our courts, people failing to do so will have their membership revoked.

COURT CARE INFO

Watering

Water the courts well before play. They should be a nice dark red colour, not pale orange otherwise they are really dusty, which is not good for play or for the courts. The better you water the courts the better they play, just be careful to water them evenly so you don't make puddles. If the hose pipe does not reach the back of the court then two pipes can be joined together. Taps are underneath the hose coils but they should always be on.

Sweeping

Use the provided clay court sweepers to even out the playing surface by dragging it across the court until you have covered all the area within the lines and 2 metres behind the baseline. Please also use the line sweepers to clear clay off of the playing lines.

Rain

Our clay courts can be played in light rain. However, after your session DO NOT drag the courts as this will cause damage tot the playing surface. If there are any standing puddles, the courts are out of action and cannot be played on.
