Wednesday ‘Drop-in and play’

Starting on Wednesday 24 April 2019, the Sports Centre will be open every Wednesday from 11am until 4.30pm (excluding Wednesday 8 May).  Courts will be set up for badminton, table tennis and short tennis* and each court can be hired in advance or on the day – first booking from 11.15am.  Drop in for a game – or just come in for a cup of tea or coffee.  Initially this is a trial to see how much the centre is used – the trial period ends on Wednesday 29 May.  Our thanks go to the volunteers who have come forward to help make this happen.

*Short tennis, a game also known as short court tennis or mini tennis, is played predominantly by children as a means to learn the basics of tennis before progressing to the full version of the sport. It is played with different equipment than used to play standard tennis, including soft balls, lowered nets and smaller rackets.

Charges: – £2 per court per hour (for either badminton, table tennis or short tennis).  To book in advance, email gchilvers@rtcsports.co.uk or phone Gill on 07584 787314.

Tea and coffee – 50p per cup

Please note that under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
