The Group usually books 3 or 4 courts on Saturdays and/or Sundays. Additional courts may be booked dependent upon court availability and attendance to sessions.

Over the summer months, some courts are booked outside, but generally the sessions are held indoors. Most of the play is doubles, which takes priority; singles is played when spare court capacity is available. Northern Aces provides tennis balls, but please bring your own racquet.
