Playing arrangements at Grove LTC - 2017

Grove does not have a policy of booking courts. This first come first served approach has worked successfully for members for years. It is rare for members to turn up to play and not have a court available, though it can happen. The table below has been developed to help members make an informed decision when courts are used for Official club business and shows coaching times. Also see the notes at the bottom of the table.
