COURT MAINTENANCE – Please can ALL members brush the courts after use
To keep our new courts in perfect condition please can ALL members brush the non-hard courts if you are the last people to play and the weather is dry. This means all adult and junior members and coaches please! The following information is from FOSSE – our court suppliers:
Brushing the surface is a crucial operation if premature loss of appearance and drainage is to be prevented. Apart from freshening the look of the surface (rather like a lawn mower striping a lawn), the purpose of regular and fairly vigorous brushing is to prevent the formation of a compacted and impervious skin on the top of the sand layer which will inhibit drainage and encourage moss and algae.
The FOSSE supplied brushes we have are ideal for hand brushing. They can be dragged over the surface, or better still, pushed. Brushing should ideally be done in both directions: in the length of the court and then at right angles across it. So members please feel free to chose a direction that suits you and vary it occasionally!
Don’t forget to do the back of the court too – a brush-width or two behind the baseline will keep the whole playing surface in good condition.
Do you want to play Social tennis?
If you’re looking to play tennis socially, then this is the ideal club for you. Come along to a club session – you do not need to bring a partner; just bring yourself, a racket and a tube of balls! Sessions are held on weekday mornings, evenings and Sundays – times and details are on the noticeboards at the club. Alternatively there are plenty of times when people can arrange their own games.
To facilitate social play we have a closed Facebook Group that members can join – search Kenilworth Social Tennis on Facebook or click here
We are hoping to start a ladder system for doubles and singles play soon. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Just starting out or returning to tennis?
Sometimes it can be daunting beginning a new sport or returning after a break.
Our “Rusty Rackets” sessions help to ease you back into the game – without too much embarrassment!
We also have a series of “Absolute Beginners” courses for those who are completely new to the game.
Come along and try it. For more information James can be contacted on 07958 278304.
If you’re looking for some competition, there are plenty of opportunities to test your game. Plus, we’re always looking for new members to join our club teams. The club has a superb track record of participation in local adult, junior and veteran leagues and we have a number of players of county standard. Keep an eye on the website or noticeboards, or speak to one of the tennis contacts.
