Tennis Rules


  • A court may be booked by the hour, on the hour up to two weeks ahead, by telephone or at the welcome desk during the Club opening hours.
  • Nobody may book singles for more than 1 hour or doubles for more than 2 hours in any one session (irrespective of the person booking the court).
  • However, this rule is not applicable if the court is NOT booked for the succeeding hour and/or no one is waiting or subsequently arrives and wishes to play.
  • If a booking is not taken up within 15 minutes of the time reserved, the booking lapses and the court becomes available to the first member claiming it.
  • If members are waiting to use a court they must make themselves known to the players already on the court.
  • If you have booked and subsequently do not intend to use the court please telephone or speak to the welcome desk to cancel.
  • Guests may only use the courts while playing with or against members, and must have a valid Guest Ticket in advance of playing (see ‘Guests’).


Full and Country members may invite guests to join them poolside, swim and play tennis. For each membership household up to four guests are permitted per day to visit the Club for this.

The fee is £10 per guest for guests to join you on the tennis courts (and/or in the fenced pool area) (‘Guest Ticket). The fee applies to all guests age 3+.

The adult member must accompany their guest(s) for the duration of the visit and is responsible for the visitor(s) strictly observing the Club Rules and House Rules. Guests may only remain at the Club with the member who has signed them in for the duration of the visit.

You must pay for Guest Tickets in advance of using the facilities. 

We limit the number of guests on the busiest days so booking ahead is advised, so please telephone the Club to pay in advance if you are planning a visit with friends.

We also sell guest tickets on the day if there is space, please organise this at the welcome desk when you arrive. Guest Tickets may not be available on the door.

You are required to pay for guests on the tennis courts (or in the fenced pool area) even if they are not playing (or swimming).

Non-member guests may visit the Club up to four times in any year, with the view that they would be interested in joining in their own right after this number of visits.
