General Court Usage
We operate on a first come first served basis with no facility to book courts. We have less than 50 members so it is very rare that both courts will be in use. I would estimate that out of the 50, a maximum of 20 members play on a regular basis all year long.
We are happy for members to bring along non members to play but ask if it becomes a regular occurrence that the non-member should look to join. We are extremely flexible on the usage of family memberships and leave it up to the individuals to use them fairly and not abuse them too much.
We ask all members not to be offended if they are asked to show there membership cards, this is really an excuse to encourage members to question non-members using the courts. Usually it is obvious when non-members are using the courts because the gate will be locked. If you open up and are joined by other people, please ensure they are members and have a key to the clubhouse before leaving the court key with them.
Dragging the court should be done after playing as a courtesy to other members actually prefer to do it before they play. Dragging the court just involves dragging the drag mat back and forth across the court from one end to the other. It levels the surface and reduces bad bounces.
A good way of meeting people and finding players of a similar standard is to come to the club sessions. These are held weekly as follows:
Tuesday 19.30 -22.00: Team Practice
Wednesday 19:00 – 21:00: Ladies only
Friday 18:30 – 20:30: Junior & Child members only
Saturday 10:00 – 12:00: Adults Drop-in
Sunday 10.30 – 13.00 – Everyone welcome – Players of all standards are welcome.
Tournament Fixtures take priority (Details available on website or clubhouse)
In all instances the designated groups have priority but members may utilise unused courts.
Wolverley Tennis Club has entered 2 teams in the Kidderminster & District Tennis League which plays on alternate Thursday nights between May and September. This does mean that the courts will be block booked on those nights. There will usually be no more than 8 home Matches per year. Matches start at 6pm and run until 9.30pm.
There is a chance of rearranged fixtures being played after the dates shown but we will try and update the web site where possible.
