Our teams form an important part of the club’s activities.  To do well they need to practice in an appropriate environment, i.e. ladies doubles, mens doubles and mens singles, rather than the more casual club sessions where the games are determined by our peg system.  

Monday night is a match practice session for those players of a decent match playing standard who regularly play in the club’s teams.  If you are considered of a suitable standard for these sessions you will be invited to attend by your team captain.  

A few of our best players have a match practice session on Wednesday night.  If you are up to this standard one of the top team captains will invite you to attend.

Winter match times: The start time of Sunday matches should be as late as possible to ensure minimum impact on Sunday club session.  However, bear in mind when it gets dark, so in December and January you will need to start matches at 12.30pm , 1pm in November and February, 1.30 in March and 2pm for the rest of the year.
