News and Information
New courts, LTA Ballot, Membership & Coaching
New courts - As of Summer 2017, we completed a major overhaul of the playing surface here at Flackwell Heath. We have always had hard courts, but these have be replaced with a new synthetic turf called 'Lano Turf'. The new surface will be softer under foot which will help with the pressure we all put on our knees playing tennis. It will also enable the courts to be used in all weathers, that also includes the rain and snow! There's never been a better time to become a member at Flackwell Heath and make the most of the new courts!
LTA Ballot - Well done to those who opted in to the Wimbledon Ballot this year. We received 5 pairs of tickets to the Championships. Last year, we were allocated 2 pairs of tickets so it was really encouraging knowing more of our members opted in this year, as the more who opt in, the greater amount of tickets we receive.
Later in the year, we will send out an email to all members encouraging the opt in for 2020, are target is to get 7 pairs for next year, giving everyone a better chance to attend. In the meantime, anyone wishing to be opted in for next year who is not already a British Tennis Member (BTM), head over to the LTA website and sign up for free. The link to the website is: www.lta.org.uk and click on the member's area to sign up for free.
