AECC Tennis Grass Courts in play

Main Image
Grass Courts are now ready for play and we would encourage members to use them - their playability improves with use. We are aware they are not in the best state so it is our intention to have the Groundsman mow them 2 or 3 times a week and heavy roll them once every 7/10 days. This is obviously weather dependant but if we are able to maintain this routine they will continue to improve through the summer. The top courts are in a sorry state having been out of play for the last 3 years and are almost beyond redemption. We intend to set up only one court in this area for Juniors to use when there are limited courts available.      See full story...
