After some awesome efforts behind the scenes, the Hadfield Tennis Club Committee is pleased to announce that a contract has been signed to replace the surface on Courts 1 and 2. A date has not yet been set for the courts to be laid, but is tentatively set for early December, before the peak season and after the end of the current NSNTA season. The courts will be laid by Tigerturf and will be blue in colour to match our existing hard courts.
What this means is we need to prepare the surface for re-carpeting. This will be need to be done by the Club and its members. There is a working bee scheduled for the 17th and 18th of November. All members are urged to come down and help out. We will put on a BBQ for those helping and ensure there are drinks on hand. There will be a Bobcat in operation to help with the heavy lifting, but many hands make light work.
If you have any interest in some of the second hand turf. Please contact Basil Hedges. This will need to be taken offsite during the weekend of 17/18 November. If you have any questions, or would like to offer some services, please let us know ahead of time by accepting this invite or contacting one of the committee.
