This is a multi-use tarmac area that is marked out for tennis, 5-a-side football, netball and basketball. The goals and netball posts are available on the court.
It is surrounded by a high net fence and is fitted with rebound boards. It can be used at any time of year as it has floodlights which are operated by a card system. The cards can be purchased from Don’s shop in the village square, so that the Centre itself does not have to be open for the outside Court to be available. The card meter is situated on the outside wall on the east side of the building. Each card lasts 30minutes, the halogen lights take 2-3mins to warm up and if the lights go out and another card inserted there is a delay before the lights work again. You can enter 2 cards consecutively if you wish to play for 60mins and not be interupted by the lights going out after 30mins.
If the court is required on a specific day, then to ensure guaranteed access to the court at this time, it is advisable to ‘book’ the court in advance. At all other times when the court is not ‘booked-out’ the use of this court is on a ‘first-come first-use’ basis. There is no public calendar currently available for ad-hoc users to check the pre-booked sessions of the court. Should a pre-booked party arrive to use the court when you are occupying the court we would be grateful if you would kindly vacate the court for the booked user. Currently Netball players play on a regular basis every Wednesday from 18:00-19:00hrs.
This Court is unsupervised and players using this court do so at their own risk. The Court can be slippery when wet and caution is needed when used.Appropriate footwear must be worn at all times.
We would request that you respect the provision of this facility and that you will leave them as you find them for the next users of the court.Your help in this would be much appreciated.
