Play at Hamilton

The following information indicates the normal opportunities for tennis at Hamilton over the year.
From July 4th, because of the current Covid restrictions, our courts are open for members and non-members to play both singles and doubles but with no mixing of players between courts. There are no organised group sessions until restrictions allow.
Courts must be booked in advance using our ClubSpark booking system. Courts 5 and 6 are available for non-members to book online through Clubspark Pay and Play. Members can also have individual coaching. (See Book a Court and Coaching)
We regret that currently we are unable to open the club house or provide toilets but tennis is going on. Please practise good hand hygiene and social distancing at all times.

Club Night Tournaments

Tournament Nights are once a month, on the second TUESDAY of the month.  On the first of the month an entry sheet will be placed on the club notice board. Please put your name down if you want to join in or text Margaret who will put it down for you. Entry £1.

This is a social event and played for prizes on the night. We will not be organising food (if you want food please order your own beforehand.)  It would be nice if people did stay for the prize giving and a drink.

These tournaments are open to all Senior Tennis Members and Intermediates and are based on American style, which rotates players so that you are with different partners during the evening. It would be good to see new members join in.

We like to start at 6.30 prompt so please arrive earlier to pay and find your first partner. We normally finish about 9pm.
If for some reason you are unable to turn up on the night could you please try to find a replacement or phone Margaret Shufflebotham who will do the same. We do need 24 people to make the tournament run smoothly, so if you could be a reserve player, please leave your name and phone number on the sheet. (You may be called at the last minute!)

Book a Court

We run many organised club sessions during the evenings so there are limited times for free play, however courts are generally available during the day.  To view court availability throughout the season and when courts are in use for club nights, coaching, tournaments, matches etc go to CLUBSPARK COURT BOOKING where you can now also book courts on-line. Courts 5 and 6 are also available for non-members to book through Pay & Play at a £10 per 1.5hr session.

All organized club sessions are suspended during Covid restrictions so all courts are available for bookings throughout the week.

Coaching

We regret we are currently unable to offer group coaching due to Covid restrictions. However individual coaching for members is continuing. To find out more contact hamiltonlawntennisclub@btconnect.com
