Ready To Play – Adult Social Play – Returning And Social Players

|Just turn up and ask behind the bar for an introduction or say hello to one of the social players often found sitting on the patio waiting for the next switch round.Numbers vary from session to session but you can usually expect a minimum of 10 social players of all ages and abilities to attend. One of the big strengths of the social sessions is that somebody always turns out to play unless there is a flood, hurricane or blizzard.Saturday – 1.30pm – 4pm Outdoors, Sunday – 1.30pm – 4pm Outdoors, Tuesday – 6.30pm – 9.30pm Outdoors, Tuesday – 12:30 – 2:30pm Winter Indoors, Summer Outdoors
Social players organise themselves and try to get a fair mix of standards. They swap around after each set.
You could try a couple of social sessions as a non-member by paying a visitors fee of £5 on entry.
Simply sign in behind the bar and ask for directions to try ‘Social Tennis’.
