Notice posted - December 07 2021

Because the courts were becoming slippery Norham Gardens has paid for pressure washing

As hardy Norham Gardens members will know we do not pay too much attention to the seasons as determined by the tilt of the Earth's axis. It is always the tennis season, we just play on harder courts. 

Club evenings
We are now into our winter schedule which is Wednesday and Saturday afternoons from 1..30 pm.

Rusty Rackets
Our popular Rusty Racquets sessions with coach Paul Butcher will start again on Thursday 16th September, 11am to 12pm. The cost is £5 per session to club members and £8 to non-members.  Anyone aged over 18 is welcome to join the sessions. So if you fancy upping your game, need to ease your way back into the game or if you know someone who is thinking off dusting off their old racquet then let them know. If interested then please contact coach Paul Butcher directly on 07584 259413.
