I am delighted to inform that the courts will be open between the following times for members and pay and play courts:

Monday to Friday – 09:00 – 19:00  Weekends – 09:00 – 17:00

NB: Weekend bookings must be made before 16:00 Friday the week before as the Reception will not be staffed on Saturday and Sunday. For security and safeguarding reasons we must supply the Bradfield College Security Team with a list of who will be on site at all times. Should anyone turn up on the day without prior booking the Security Team will be well within their rights to ask you to leave.

Please note that like many tennis clubs there may not be a dedicated First Aider on site over the weekend or within the immediate vicinity, with this in mind there will be a fully equipped first aid kit located in the external light meter cupboard by the Clay Court car park.

If there is an emergency you can call the Bradfield Security on 07717 726 414

Please also note that security will visit the courts at closing time to ensure that the courts are locked overnight.

May I also ask that upon finishing play that the courts are watered, swept and the lines cleared so that they are ready for the next user, hands can be washed using the stand pipes between courts 4-6 & 1-3.
