Winter Floodlit Tennis – Membership & League 1st Oct 2019 – 31st  March 2020

HRTC are again offering a Winter Floodlit Membership & League under our new LED Floodlights.  Available to all tennis players in the Cleveland League but in particular to those clubs local to us who do not have floodlights. Our aim is to provide an opportunity which offers the local tennis community to play competitive evening tennis in the winter months. If you choose to take up this offer we welcome you to HRTC and hope you enjoy your tennis under floodlights.

Winter Tennis Membership***

Winter Membership & entry to the League is £30 which entitles you to book a court online and you are able to turn up and play any day from 5-10pm with the exception of Tuesday 7-30 -10pm when we hold our club night, which you are also invited to attend.

Please Click Here to Download the Membership Form and when completed, please return it to Chris Devereux  cdevereux64@gmail.com making payment directly to our Bank Account.

As a member you can just ‘turn up and play’ but to avoid disappointment particularly if you are travelling from afar if you wish to pre-book courts please let us know and you will then be added to the HRTC floodlit booking system through the LTA Club Spark tool and given guidance as to how to book courts.

To access the floodlights you will need a fob to allow you to enter the Pavilion. Entrance Fobs are available from Chistine Devereux at £5 each which is returnable at the end of your membership. Floodlights cost £5 per hour with the meter accepting £2, £1 and 50p coins:

Winter Tennis League

Once you are a member we would love you to be part of our Floodlit League. This will be a Doubles League:  open to all abilities consisting of either Men’s Ladies and Mixed pairs. A member can play in more than one category with a different partner if they wish. If you play in the Cleveland League during the summer please include the division your team is in.  The format of the League will be decided on once we have an expression of interest but we hope to duplicate the successful Box Leagues operated last year.  Members will be supplied with contact details for all involved to allow matches to be arranged at their convenience. Matches will consist of best of 3 sets with a tie break at 6-6 .Final set to be Championship tie-break or as agreed between participants with results e-mailed to allow scores to be recorded. Leagues will last approx. 1 month with hopefully 5 teams in a league giving 4 matches during the month

If you would like to be involved in the League even if you don’t have a partner please e-mail an expression of interest confirming your name, the category and possible partner to John Kitson john@jkitson.me.uk

If you miss the first league you will be welcome to join the next.

For £60.00 you can join as a FULL Member of the Club from October through to the End of March 2020!

Closing date for entries Saturday  21st  September 2019
