Am I tied into a contract?

No. You pay £30 for 1 year and if you want to carry on with the use of the courts the following year, you will need to pay again.

What happens if I join half way through the year? Do I get a reduced fee to pay?

No, there is no reduced fee. From the time we receive your payment, that is when your full year starts.

Once we have joined do we still have to pay court fees?

All courts are free once you have joined.

Can I book two courts in a row?

No. You can book one court and if the next session is free then you can stay on and play. You must vacate the court if it has been booked by another person.

How do I buy tokens for the floodlights at Winton Tennis Courts?

What happens if my fob does not work or I lose it?

The West Hants Club will not accept any responsibility for fobs as we have no idea how they have been treated. All fobs are tested before being sent out. If for any reason you require a replacement fob, you will pay £10.

Where can I go to buy a racket or if my strings break?

The Shop at The West Hants Club is fully stocked with rackets, clothing, footwear and balls. We also provide a racket stringing service with expert professional advice. If you would like to learn about the different types of strings we recommend this guide from Perfect Tennis.

What happens if I have booked a court and I turn up and there is another person playing on the court?

If a dispute occurs please contact us on 01202 519455. The name which appears on our booking sheet will take precedence
