NEW Season - The start of the Bucks Vets season is upon us and we also have three midweek ladies teams playing through the Winter. The Veterans competition is open to ladies over 40 and men over 45 prior to 31st December 2012. If you have not played before and think you have what it takes to represent the club, please email Dan Coe at dcoe@stokepark.com and he will forward your name to the relevant captain. 
 
GRASS Courts - Due to the inclement weather, the grass courts have not had a lot of use this year. We are therefore going to try and keep some courts open until the end of September so that everyone gets a chance to use them. 
 
INDOOR COURTS - As we head into the Winter months and become more reliant on the indoor courts, please remember to respect those who are already using the courts when you enter the tennis hall. Please do not enter until a maximum of five minutes before your court time is due to start. When you do enter the hall, please remain behind the curtain until play has come to a natural break before entering the court area. All mobile phones should be turned to silent at all times in the hall area.
