The courts are well maintained and we have a clubhouse with toilet facilities. Playing on grass is seasonal and weather dependent. We aim to start the season in April/May and finish in September/October. We ask members not to play if the courts are wet.

The courts are available for specific hire or block booking through Rosie or Ken Barfoot 01305 261540. There is a combination lock on the gate. You will be given the number on paying your fee. Please do not reveal this number to anyone, as we have had trouble with vandals in the past.

Club sessions are as follows:

Saturday afternoons 2.15 pm onwards.
Tuesday evenings 6 pm onwards.
Saturdays 12.15 to 1.15 pm for Junior Coaching*   & 1.15 to 2.15 pm for Senior Coaching.
Sunday 11 am - Session for those who are feeling a little rusty or returning after injury.

The grass courts at Cattistock can be used at any other time on a first come first serve (literally!) basis. If both courts are busy, members must vacate after one hour or by other mutual agreement. There is a block booking Thursdays from 2.30 pm until 4.30 pm for one court.

*We are very fortunate to have Rachel Smith as a qualified Tennis Coach, who is also available if you want private tuition.
