“ In previous years, some members of our Committee had to spend hours sweeping the courts to remove the mud before play could start.  This tended to be done only for organised social and coaching sessions.   Now that this is no longer needed, individuals can come down to play informally at any time without preparation and we are certainly aware of this happening on a regular basis - for example parent members and their children during the recent half term week.”
