Junior Club Rules

All junior members are expected to adhere to the same rules and regulations as senior members.

Junior members are allowed to use courts when they are not otherwise booked, in the same way that senior members are, however unsupervised access is a privilege which must be discussed with the committee first, and is not permitted in any circumstance for under 16’s, for safety reasons.
