On Court

WTC provides year-round opportunities for social and competitive tennis for all ages. So get out on court and enjoy yourself! 

The courts are available for use by members from 9.00am onwards unless courts have been reserved for coaching, a league match or a special event such as Finals Day or a junior ratings event. There is a schedule for the Playing Week when priority is given to social tennis, match-play or coaching and you can also check the website calendar for up to date details of What’s On

There’s no general booking system for courts at WTC and at busy times, members are expected to play doubles and ‘mix in’ to enable as many players can get on court at any one time. At times of exceptional demand between May – July up to two courts may be reserved for club tournament matches. If so, a reservation sheet will be posted in the clubhouse foyer to allow competitors to book slots on the designated tournament courts. 

Visitors are very welcome at WTC but the Club is not set up as a ‘pay and play’ facility, so visitors are asked to respect the fact that members have priority if it’s busy. Members are, however, expected to encourage visitors to join in on court - all our visitors are potential new members! 

Please respect other members and our neighbours by remembering the following:

  • the use of bad language and shouting on court is never acceptable
  • keep bikes off the courts
  • use the bins for food waste and drinks bottles
  • use appropriate non-marking footwear when on court
  • use the path and the gates – don’t walk on court behind other players
  • if all courts are busy, play 1 set of doubles then let any waiting members take their turn 

Floodlights can be used by members as required but the lights should be off at 9.45pm out of courtesy to our neighbours. Floodlight tokens cost £4 for an hour’s play and can be obtained from the bar. 

All members are asked to encourage everyone on court to behave appropriately so everyone can enjoy their tennis in a competitive but friendly atmosphere.
