PLEASE NOTE: New members we encourage you to become British Tennis Members and affiliate to Midhurst Tennis Club, again dead easy same website. It’s free and has lots of other benefits to you and the club.

 

Finally an update on the development of the courts: We have now received a preliminary report from the Planners about installing floodlights. Mostly it contains no surprises. There are however aspects of the report we will need to discuss with them before we can make a full planning application. The issues are complex and may take a while to resolve. I will keep you posted.

Think that’s it!
