Tennis News - Court 3 Ready for play!

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.

Tennis News - clay court inspection

The Tennis Comittee has undertaken a ‘Diag Technique’ of our clay courts with the French Tennis Federation experts this week.
They will be back for more tests at the beginning of winter but these preliminary tests have shown our courts to be in a much better state than we originally thought. The main message from the FTT was that they need to be watered as much as possible and preferably after every match.  Great news!
