Grass courts in play!

If you thought grass courts 1-6 were playing well, cialis wait until you play on the three courts in the cage! Officially opened on Thursday in time for ladies match practice in the evening, no rx the coaches and first team players who tried them out in the afternoon described them as excellent.  Then in the evening 2 ladies doubles matches were played against Milford and the players were full of praise.
In the Autumn our groundsman Daniel Tomberry re-seeded the courts with rye grass and spread four tonnes of clay based top dressing over the surface, before drag netting in, to improve levelling and bounce.  Now we can all reap the benefits!
