Welcome to Lyddington Tennis
This single hard court is located in an attractive setting on the playing fields down a small track to the east of Main Street in Lyddington. The court is made available at the discretion of Lyddington Parish Council. It is managed on their behalf by the Lyddington Tennis Committee, and operates as a club, primarily for the benefit of the residents of the village.
In order to prevent damage to the court access is restricted by use of a padlock, with the entry code only given to those authorised to use the court.
Lyddington Tennis requests that all those intending to use the court on a regular basis become members. This allows them to have the entry code to the padlock and enables them to use the court booking system. Those that have made a court booking will have priority to use the court over those that may have arrived first but have not made a court booking.
Those that wish to join the club are required to pay, for a full year, £50 for a family or £30 for an individual. Should a family or individual wish to join later in the season then reduced charges will be considered. Cheques should be made payable to Lyddington Tennis and sent to Derrick Webb at the address shown below. An alternative is to make an inter-bank transfer to the account of Lyddington Tennis sort code 40-45-03 account number 81239945 and advise Derrick Webb accordingly. Once payment has been received, new members will be given the padlock code and they will be able to use the court booking system.
New members should go to the Members area and follow the simple instruction of how to set themselves up to be able to book the court.
There are two requests we make to members when they are planning to book the court. We ask they do not book the court for the same time every weeks for an extended period. Once a booking has been made, if it is subsequently found that it is no longer required, the booking should be cancelled, which is a very easy process.
The court is a facility primarily for use by Lyddington residents, but the Chairman will be happy to consider applications for membership from residents of local villages which are too small to have their own tennis court. However the total number of non-residents will always be limited.
Non-residents will be required to pay a premium of £10 for family membership and £5 for individuals.
