7 Day Adult Mix in sessions
The idea of a mix in session is to allow everyone to turn up and play.
This means making up a balanced four from those waiting. The process of selecting players is illustrated by the poster on the right.
When we have very popular mix in sessions in the colder weather such that all courts are in use and members are waiting for a game, then we play to the Winter Rules; also illustrated here.
Other Mix in sessions
There are other mix-in sessions for mid week players, intermediates etc.
These are typically smaller friendly groups with less structured mix-in rules.
Social Tennis Events
American Tournaments are held several times a year. These provide a chance to play tennis with a variety of partners and the rules are designed to balance out the stronger and weaker players so that everyone gets some comptitive games. They also feature excellent teas and a chance to socialise.
The club also holds Open Days at which prospective members are very welcome to turn up, play some tennis and enjoy free refreshments, without obligation.
These are normally very enjoyable and successful occasions, with opportunities to meet some members, including our coach, Adrian Joly, and chat about the club as well as play tennis.
