The recent bad weather has delayed the work slightly. The contractors will be on site from Monday 9th March and will complete the preparation of the top surface before tarmacking hopefully on Wednesday 11th. The carpet fitters will begin once the top surface is ready and this will probably take us into the beginning of the following week.
We would like to thank you for your patience and flexibility on playing times when using the remaining three courts – see here for an update on anticipated court usage for this week. We will keep you updated with the progress being made at the end of next week.
The 2020 AGM of Ryde Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club will be held in the RLTCC Clubhouse, Playstreet Lane on Thursday March 26th at 6.30pm. Documents for the AGM will be made available here.
Chiltern Sports will start work resurfacing courts 1, 2 and 3 on Monday 17th February. Only courts 4, 5 and 6 will be available for play for possibly three weeks. Attached is a summary of court usage for matches and club-sponsored events. Look also at the Winter Tennis Schedule on the notice board or website.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and interruption to your play during the next three weeks. If turning up for private play please remember the club rule that applies at all times and vacate your court after completing a set or after 30 minutes if others are waiting.
Weather permitting, the contractors will be arriving at 8.00am on Monday 17th. Parking will be restricted to the few bays near the clubhouse enabling the contractor’s access to the tennis courts. Please be prepared to use parking spaces on Playstreet Lane and roads close to the club when visiting the club.
Thank you for your patience and we look forward to the completion of the resurfacing of courts 1, 2 and 3, ready for the summer season.

As at the 19th October, the winter work has been started but the top dressing of sand and soil can not be applied until the lawns have dried out enough to take the weight of the machines.
Once that is down, hoop holes and boundaries will have to be remarked so with the current rainy weather it is likely to be a week or so (at least) before play can start again.
