Monday Afternoon Tennis

Monday afternoon tennis is coordinated by Stephen Yates. It is usually three sets played between 14:00 & 16:00 or between 15:00 & 17:00 or between 16:00 & 18:00 depending on the time of year and weather outlook. Most games are doubles with the occasional singles when required. Occasionally, if the number of players require it, two sessions will be organised. All the games are pre-planned, with the intention of creating balanced play.
