As we approach the summer playing season I would like to update you on the newly reseeded grasscourts.
As you are well aware we have had a horrible wet and cold winter. This has put the spring growth back by 4-6 weeks and as a consequence our new grasscourts have not had the time needed to bed in and be ready for play at the start of May.
The Course Director and Course Supervisor (Mark Sheridan) have advised that the earliest they will be available for regular use is the first week of June. Mark is very aware of the challenges this poses for the Tennis Club and is making every effort to get the courts open as soon as possible. However, like us all he has no control over the weather!
One bright spot. Mark has assured me that he will make the grasscourts available for the Tennis Captains Serve In on Sunday, 6th May. So put the date in your diary. It is always a most enjoyable afternoon and as usual we will enjoy prosecco and strawberries following the tennis.
