court usage

Bovey Tracey Lawn Tennis Club has three all-weather floodlit courts. The most up-to-date use of courts is displayed on the Clubspark booking system website.

As a member you will be given the entrance code for the locks on the gate and clubhouse. 

Switches for the floodlights can be found in the clubhouse (in the corridor). Tokens will be available – just insert them as needed. (Please note that we no longer require tokens to be purchased – just turn up and play.)

Generally speaking there will always be one court available (apart from Saturday mornings, and Club Evenings on Mondays, Thursdays and Sunday mornings). Please note Ryan has the use of 1 court at all times (exception Friday mornings from 11am).

Junior members under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult, and all visitors must sign the visitors’ book in the clubhouse, for insurance purposes. Any visitor’s fee should be put in the tin on the floor in the clubhouse, by the noticeboard.

There are plenty of opportunities for social play, with an active group from 9am – 11am weekdays. If the courts are being used outside these times, whether for tournaments, junior matches or league matches, details will be posted on the Club noticeboard.

Using the covered court

It looks amazing, but we must look after it. A few golden rules to keep the surface good:

Only non-marking tennis/squash shoes to be worn and absolutely no chewing gum, glass tumblers or bottles on court. During the summer, temperatures may get high so damage to the surface could be caused. If black marks start to appear on the surface, it is important to cease playing immediately and report it to a committee member as the court will have to be closed temporarily.

Thank you and enjoy!
