.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:
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. Again, timings may be adjusted to maximise the available daylight.
From June 2016 we re-introduced our Thursday social play sessions, from 10am., but attendance is currently very sporadic.
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 some 16 slots, mainly in mornings from March to July, when AES are using the courts - check the dates on the calendar to avoid disappointment).
