Coaching Times and Policy

Quote Posted on

 Coaching Times

The BGTC Committee have granted permission to two coaches to run coaching sessions at set times during the week. All attendees must be members of the Club. If both courts are in use, you will have to wait until a court becomes available to play or the end of the coaching session.  This applies during these times only.

Any coaching which takes place at any other time has not been approved by the Committee and the waiting rule still applies to the coach and players who will have to give way within 30 minutes.

Bourne Green Tennis Club Waiting Rule

If both courts are taken when you come to play, the players who have been there longest must finish their set or finish within 30 minutes, whichever is the shorter. Likewise, you must give way within 30 minutes if someone is waiting.
