A fine autumn enables full advantage to be taken of the all-year-round tennis activities including morning and afternoon roll-ups and organised sessions. Special mention is appropriate for the Saturday afternoon social session starting at 2 pm with refreshments served in the café-bar afterwards – visitors welcome. Autumn is the time to focus evening play on the three indoor tennis courts and the eight floodlit courts for social, match practice and junior rotas and for sessions arranged by members.
A coming development is the full incorporation of the indoor courts into Manor Park Club on 1st January 2023. It is not expected that management policy will be affected. As a preparation, the indoor courts have been closed during the last week of October for major maintenance work. The four grass courts are having the court surface lowered to eliminate the camber at the court edges. The result should be a properly flat playing surface for the summer.
Rackets members have the benefit of improvements to the squash courts, with underfloor heating, a glass wall on Court 4 and more spectator space. These changes have been paid for by funds released after the closure of the Hornyold squash club. The success of a crowdfunding activity has made possible the make over of the changing rooms.
