Important safety notice18 March 2017
The current weather conditions are creating problems on the all weather courts. The heavy rain is forcing debris in the carpet pile to the surface and this is then turning into a slimy deposit on the court surface.
THIS CAN MAKE THE COURTS EXTREMELY SLIPPY AND DANGEROUS SO PLEASE TAKE EXTREME CARE.
The problem is compounded by the fact that because of the new court work the groundsman is unable to get his machine on the court to drag the
courts using the big brushes. We have hired a small brushing machine but this is very time consuming to use and not as effective as the big brushes.
Please note that the groundsman is on holiday next week and therefore if there is heavy rain then the problem is likely to get worse.
Of course once all four courts are re-carpeted later in the year then the problem will go away but in the meantime we ask for your patience and
ONCE AGAIN WE ASK THAT YOU TAKE EXTREME CARE
