Plenty of free parking and the tennis club provides balls but players
should bring their own tennis racquets as we have limited supplies.
The Clubhouse will be open and has changing rooms/toilets plus
tea and coffee making facilities. Players are required to wear
appropriate footwear on court.
Three tennis courts are reserved for U3A social play during this time. Games are normally played as doubles games with the players changing teams after each set. Players can turn up and play at any time between 1 PM -4 PM and will join the next set which starts after their arrival.
(Exact format may change dependent on the number of players but this format allows for between 2 and 12 players to be on court at any time).
For beginners there may be some free coaching available (Tennis Racket provided by club) in the basics to get you started (Subject to numbers).
The University of the Third Age (U3A) movement is a unique and exciting organisation which provides, through its U3As, life-enhancing and life-changing opportunities. Retired and semi-retired people come together and learn together, not for qualifications but for its own reward: the sheer joy of discovery!
Members share their skills and life experiences: the learners teach and the teachers learn, and there is no distinction between them. The U3A movement is supported by its national organisation, the Third Age Trust.
