With the increase in postage costs we can no longer afford to send communication via snail mail please read the emails we send. Shoe tags will no longer be sent and instead a list of current financial members will be available near the phone and updated as needed.

Members may obtain a key to the courts from the Treasurer on payment of a $10 deposit. Members may invite friends or family to play on the courts when free, usually on Sundays and weekdays before 4pm. The cost of a non-member to play is $5 per session. We
encourage all visitors to become members of the club. Members using the courts for casual play should be reminded to wear the correct footwear and make sure the courts are bagged and watered after play.
