Police Surveillance

We are working closely with Hessle Local Police,Peeler House to ensure members safety.
During the summer holidays the police will patrol the courts on a regular basis and anyone without a membership card and not a guest of a member, will be asked to leave the courts.
To assist the police can you make sure that courts are locked after use, non members are not given the combination lock numbers, and that you have your membership card with you at all times.

Policing of Tennis Courts

These are your courts and you have all paid your membership fee to use and enjoy these excellent facilities.

Summer holidays are upon us so we are likely to see more non members trying to use the courts.

Can I therefore ask you all to assist the Management Team with the policing of these courts?

Can you politely request players to produce their membership card if you are unsure that they are members?

Guests can use the courts on 3 separate occasions but must be accompanied by a member and pay green fees of £2 seniors/£1 juniors.

Clay Court Season Arrives

I was fortunate enough to witness the official unveiling of the Centre Court roof at Wimbledon today along with my sister, Holly. With a capacity crowd, the atmosphere was amazing. The roof is highly impressive and the lighting has such an effect, that it is barely noticeable when play is taking place under a closed roof. It would be such a fantastic honour if I ever have the opportunity to play on this newly designed Centre Court.

Not an expert with the iron

The week didn't start well. Ironing some AEGON patches onto a few tops might sound like a straightforward task, but for someone like me with considerably poor domestic skills, it's not so easy. Having ironed on at least half a dozen patches beautifully (if I may say so), I was pressing another patch onto a top.
