SOCIAL TENNIS

Linkside Lawn Tennis Club runs a very active social tennis programme that strives to promote a fun and social atmosphere for our members. Our social programme is meant to give all members the opportunity to play competitive and enjoyable sets of doubles with players of different standards. This allows members to get to know each other and encourages an inclusive and sociable atmosphere for all.


Social Eligibility

All fully paid Senior and Junior members whose standard has been checked for social play.


Social Tennis Times:

Monday and Friday Mornings:         10.00 - 12.00 am

Tuesday and Thursday Evenings:    6:30 - 10:00 pm

Saturday and Sunday Afternoons:   2:00 - 6:00 pm


Social Tennis System

The social sessions work to a system to ensure that there is a good rotation of games and everyone is included.

Two different systems are used - a pegboard on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, and organized rotation on Monday and Friday. These will be explained to new members.

For details of the pegboard system see below

During social times, players should play one short set (primarily doubles) ending at a 5 all draw (no tie breaks) to facilitate mixing and then leave the court making the court available for the next four.
