Fernhurst Tennis Club - CLUB SESSIONS

ADULT MEMBERS CLUB SESSIONS (ROLL-UPs)

Each Saturday there is a nominated Club member who acts as "games maker" to welcome new members and help organise games. 

Saturday mornings from 9.30am
Monday mornings from 10.00am

and, during the Summer months (from end March to end September)

Wednesday evenings at Midhurst Tennis Club starting at 6.00pm at their courts on June Lane, Midhurst

There is no need to pre-book for these sessions - just turn up - and there is no charge for members

General enquiries: email Tom Plant on tomplant@marleylodge.co.uk

CONDUCT OF CLUB SESSIONS:

  • These are essentially for members only, but adult members may bring a guest who is genuinely interested in becoming a member, ideally with prior notice to the nominated Games maker.
  • While predominantly for adult members, juniors aged 16 and over may attend, subject to their being of competent standard
  • They are 'mix-up' sessions designed to allow any member to turn up and play, ideally with a variety of other players. Members should be flexible about who they play with.
  • Due to demand, most matches will be doubles and, where possible, pairings will be structured to try to match abilities
  • If members are sitting out waiting to play, or are playing singles, please limit the length of your match. Normally, the convention of stopping after the earlier of a completed set or seven games will be appropriate and mean that no-one needs to sit out too long. If there are many people waiting, sudden death at second deuce should be played.   
  • Members not wishing to participate in Club sessions should avoid trying to play at these times as Roll ups will have priority.
  • For convenience Club balls will generally be provided.  These may be nearly-new balls from home matches or from earlier roll ups.
