.Specific social play sessions take place, and members and visitors are invited to come along and mix in.
The main times for social tennis are shown below, (but note that there will be changes due to covid-19 in 2020):
Saturdays from 1pm.
Sundays from around 2pm (timings may vary depending on the time of year / hours of daylight)
Tuesday evenings, usually from April to August with a typical start time of 6:30 / 7:00 pm. Timings are adjusted to maximise the available daylight, so earlier starts in September for example.
At social play times, doubles always takes priority over singles. At busy periods, there is a general rule that people play a maximum of 7 games, although this may sometimes be modified to 5 games.
(Note to social players - there are normally some 16 slots, mainly in mornings from late April to late July, when AES are using the courts - check the dates on the calendar to avoid disappointment - but not applicable in 2002 due to covid-19).
