After an amazing few weeks of good weather, let's hope it continues into the Autumn.
The cricket section, in conjunction with Primrose Hill Cricket Club is doing a lot of redevelopment work this Autumn. They will be putting in new practice nets at the back of the cricket pitch this week, and work commences on Wednesday 7th September.
From Wednesday to Friday there will be very large lorries delivering equipemt, and we apologise, but there is NO PARKING AVAILABLE on these days in the drive or car park areas between the hours of 7am and 4pm.
There is parking on Harman Drive, Harman Close, Farm Avenue and Hocroft Avenue, but there are restrictions between 10-11am and 2-3pm in different parts of the roads. There are signs that clearly show this. The Farm Avenue end of Harman Drive is 2-3pm restrictions, as is some of Hocroft Avenue. Other areas are all restricted 10-11am. The yellow lines follow the same restrictions.
Owing to this work, there will be no schools on the grounds this week, and coaching has not yet restarted, so all the tennis courts will be available for use. We will let you know of the new schools times before their sessions restart next week.
Just to remind all you post-Wimbledon keen tennis players that the kids summer camps have started. This means that 4 courts will be in use from Monday - Friday 10am - 3pm. From 9am - 4pm and from 3pm - 4pm there will be 2 courts in use, and there may be the usual coaching program on 2 courts after that.
Normal service resumes on 22nd August. The schools return on September 7th, but they will have less usage of the courts in the next academic year - more on this nearer the time.
Don't forget that on some evenings there are still league matches until the end of July which occupies 3 courts. All the dates of these matches are on the Events Calendar.
And please remember - the children are the future of our Club and of British tennis.
