Club Night for Members
A special Club Night mix-in for senior members takes place at Carisbrooke Tennis Club throughout the year – whatever the weather (thanks to our indoor ‘The Dome’ facility).
It takes place on Tuesday nights and is open to all senior members regardless of their standard of play. New recruits and long-standing members, young or old, it doesn’t matter, all members are welcome!
During the more pleasant climes of spring and summer, Club Night runs on the top three and bottom three artificial grass courts, with play often continuing well into the night (max: 9.30pm) under our floodlights on the three uppermost courts.
But Club Night does not cease during the harsher autumn or winter months! Oh no, it continues throughout the year thanks to our indoor tennis courts under The Dome! From October until April, we offer the use of both our indoor Dome courts to members for FREE between the hours of 6pm and 10pm. Senior members can simply turn up and use the courts on a first-come, first-served basis, with people then taking it in turns to share the courts during the rest of the session to ensure everybody gets a fair chance to use the courts.
Social side of Club Night
As well as the mix-in tennis on offer during Club Night, many members also take full advantage of these Tuesday occasions to make a fun social night of it. Carisbrooke’s licensed bar and other facilities are open on Tuesday nights (spring and summer guaranteed but often during the autumn and winter months too!) and it has been known for the occasional darts or card game to break out of an evening!
Are you a beginner or a newer Carisbrooke member and worried about where you might fit in with the standard of play on Club Night? Do not fear! Simply speak to our Head Coach Jack Simpson on 07816 067 652 and he will be able to explain what kind of tennis best fits our newer members. Coaching group sessions are available for all standards of play and if you think you might not be ready for Club Night yet, there are plenty of other options available. See the January-March Tennis Programme schedule for more details.
Selected junior members are also welcome to play on Club Night, by invitation. Speak to Jack to find out more.
