TENNIS - courts available evenings and weekends... daytime block bookings...

With the autumn-winter season now underway, you may like to know of evening and weekend court availablity.

The block bookings are now all allocated for indoor courts and outdoor floodlit courts and while the 7PM slots are almost all taken (there is just one outdoor court available each week on Thursday evenings at the moment), members can have an indoor or outdoor court at 8:30PM on some evenings.

Indoors at 8:30 - Courts available on Tuesday and Wednesday evening

Outdoors at 8:30 - Courts available Monday to Thursday evening

At weekends the club is thronging in the morning yet we have absolutely loads of court availability in the afternoons on Saturdays and Sundays. We do book tournaments in at weekends as it  guarantees good indoor court income for the club when they may otherwise be left empty. But there are many weekend days without any events booked from now until Christmas so beat the weather and get on court on weekend afternoons.

Daytime Block Bookings

Members can beat the last minute rush for indoor courts when the weather is bad by having a regular daytime blockbooking. If you would like to have an indoor court reserved throughout the winter seaon, you can take out a block booking and have the comfort of knowing that whatever the weather or demand for courts you will have the same indoor court every week!

email reply if interested in a daytime block booking.

PSL - Tickets now on sale team line ups announced...

Get Your Tickets now for the opening home match of this years PSL...

Winchester vs Exeter Diamonds - Tuesday 28 October 2014 @ 7pm


First match preview... our first home tie sees three Egyptians coming to Winchester for what promises to be an entertaining night!

String 1: Karim Abdel Gawad (Winchester) vs Omar Mosaad (Exeter)

Gawad  Mosaad

                     Gawad                                                       Mosaad

The quick and skillful Gawad is the current PSA Young Player of the Year (having succeeded Marwan El Shorbaghy) and despite being only 22 already has a string of tour titles to his name.  Mosaad, the "Hammer of Thor", is known for his uncompromising and powerful style and won their last encounter back in March by three very close games to one.  Gawad has been progressing rapidly though, so this one is very much up for grabs.
