The latest news from Brackley Tennis Club

Court Cleaning

The courts are going to be cleaned in two goes, firstly courts 1-3, then courts 4 &amp. 5. The contractor for the work is Nigel Taylor. Whilst the courts are being cleaned play will not be possible for anyone. The work on courts 1-3 will start in the second week of September and is expected to take 3 days to complete. The courts will need to be dry before the sand can be replaced, so we are hostage to the weather as to when the courts will be available for use. Once courts 1-3 are complete the remaining 2 courts will be cleaned. During the period of cleaning, Carolyn Markham has kindly offered her private court for use by the club should the need arise.
