Winter sunshine 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. The focus on dark evenings is 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 development which took place on 1st January 2023 has been the full incorporation of the indoor courts into Manor Park Club. As a preparation, the indoor courts were closed during the last week of October for major maintenance work. The four grass courts have had the court surface lowered to eliminate the camber at the court edges. The result should be an improved 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.
Tuesday evening mixed doubles social tennis is played on the indoor courts between 1st October and 31st March. All Manor Park tennis and full rackets members are eligible to play. It is also possible to join for indoor tennis only. Indoor court fees are charged at £4 per Tuesday evening session. Play is on a rota basis, with three evening sessions: 5.30 pm to 6.45 pm, 6.45 pm to 8.00 pm and 8.00 pm to 9.15 pm. Members are scheduled on court approximately on alternate weeks after being asked in advance to state weeks they wish to avoid. Players need to find substitutes if they are unavailable for play when scheduled. If you would like to be included on the Tuesday evening winter mixed doubles rota or the list of reserves please use the ‘Contact Us’ page of the website.
