HAPPY NEW YEAR!
CONGRATULATIONS TO ANTONIO LECCISOTTI and MARILYN COULBY who were the winners of our annual
American Doubles Tournament over Christmas.
NEW! Indoor Court Curtains
The new backdrops have been fitted on the indoor courts. They look fantastic and are effective in reducing the “bounce back”.
They work like regular curtains and open from the middle if you need to retrieve any balls.
PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO OPEN THE CURTAINS FROM THE SIDES AS THEY ARE FIXED TO THE POST AND THIS MAY DAMAGE THE MATERIAL
