For the convenience of members, any of the four courts can be booked for private games outside of club sessions and coaching classes. There is no charge for members and all court booking is online. Members can book a court no more than four weeks ahead.
IMPORTANT: if you book a court and for any reason can’t use it, you must cancel the booking – otherwise other members may be deprived of playing.
Courts 1 and 2 have artificial grass surface; Courts 3 and 4 are hard surface. Please ensure only correct tennis shoes/trainers are worn – and this is especially important with the artificial grass courts.
Dogs are not allowed on any court.
Floodlights are available to members on all four courts at no charge. There are switch boxes both inside and outside the clubhouse (the padlock code for the exterior box is the same as the court code). Please only turn on the lights to the court you need. And please ensure that, if no one is waiting to play, the lights are turned off after use.
Automatic ball feeder
Members who have attended a SlingerBag demonstration can hire the club’s automatic ball feeder at £4 for one hour of solo hitting practice. The machine is available on Court 2 only; the button to hire it appears in the window when you choose the day and time of your Court 2 booking.
Members can play with a guest on any of the courts. The guest fee is £3 per hour and it is the responsibility of the FTC member to pay this online.
IMPORTANT: Four-digit lock code
You need a 4-digit code to our combination lock which will be printed on your booking confirmation email. Click below to see a larger image.
