Court Replacement Update

Work has been continuing on the replacement of the Courts and everything is going well. The surface has been stripped, the base has been levelled and the new surface laid.

Unfortunately the work has extended a further week, with the work expected to be completed and the courts ready for play on Thursday 17 May.

There are a few matches that have been required to be moved due to the extra time required and the Committee has made the appropriate arrangements to move these matches and contacted the affected teams. Details of these matches are updated on the Club’s Web Site.

The following are images of the replacement in progress.
