Use of Courts

Please note that the courts are open to all, but anyone using the courts who is not a member of the club is required to pay a Visitor’s Fee. The annual membership fee is so reasonable that even if you only wish to play outside of the summer match season and take advantage of our two fantastic all weather courts, it’s still a great deal!
