We are delighted to announce that the renovation of Court 3 has now been completed.
This has been a multi-step, 7-month process, led from start to finish by Raphaël Kahane, in coordination with the Tennis Committee.
We can now play on a state-of-the-art artificial surface (with a 10-year warranty). We look forward to receiving your feedback, so please grab your rackets and give it a try.
To maintain our new surface, please do not forget to drag the court after each game and, if the weather is very dry, to water the court (just like a regular clay court).
Thanks are due to all involved in the planning and execution of this major project for our Club. Read on for more details and a couple of pictures.

  • Assessment of multiple potential surfaces by Raphaël, Mikaël Jayet, Melvyn Cooke and Roland Tchertoff to ensure that the surface meets the needs of both competition and leisure players
  • Negotiation with suppliers (Raphael, Roland, Emile Freiha) … to finally obtain a price 1/3 lower than the quotes that had been received in previous years
  • Removal and disposal of the old surface by our staff and interns: Caroline, Patrick, Diego, Jack, Elise (and Gerald’s skip)
  • Repair and painting of the surrounding walls prior to laying of the surface
  • Laying of the new surface, completed yesterday.
