The session times are as follows:

  • Advanced match play: 10am – 11:30am (With 2x courts booked at 9:30am for Advanced members to use)
  • Open Social (All Ratings): 11:30am – 1pm

Please speak to any member of the coaching team if you do not have a rating or have a ratings query.

At Wickwoods we encourage a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for all members in general, as well as during our Sunday sessions. We respectfully ask all members to adhere to our welcoming ethos which is a condition of membership.

We ask that you read and abide by the below Sunday match play/ open social guidelines:

  • Please report to the host on arrival and add your name tag to the list of waiting players on the hosting board. The host may have already included you into the first round if you’re on their printed list. The first 16 players to book onto the session will be guaranteed their first match indoors (or outdoors subject to weather).
  • If you do not yet have a name tag, please use a guest tag and let the host know if you plan to attend regularly so that a personalised tag can be ordered.
  • The player whose name is at the top of the ‘waiting to play’ list should select 3 players from the next 6 names to make their four. The host will be happy to assist with selection if required.
  • The player ‘waiting to play’ is asked to select a Mixed Doubles, unless this is not possible. Members are asked NOT to take over the session but allow the host to have space to run the session. The host will call over the player to choose their four or will have pairs ready to go in advance.
  • A round will consist of 30 mins (i.e. 10:00am – 10:30am/ 10:30am – 11:00am etc). Sudden death on the 2nd deuce (receiver chooses on which side to receive).
  • Players should always return to the board in the Lodge after completion of a match. Please do not mix-in on the same court for a further round unless specifically asked to do so by the host.
  • Please let the host know when you are leaving the session and return your name tag to the main pool of names on the board.
  • If it seems likely that no further play will take place on your court, please collect all the balls and return them to the host.
  • Please dispose of your drinks cups in the bins provided.
  • Please observe guidelines regarding use of clay courts, i.e. dragging courts & shoe cleaning.

Your host is there to make your session as enjoyable as possible, so please talk to them if you would like more information about tennis at Wickwoods. They will be happy to explain other opportunities within our comprehensive tennis programme or to answer any queries.

Thank you for your continued support and we hope you enjoy the Sunday match play/ open social!
