Tennis ball on a tennis clay court

The main CLTC site has 12 courts, comprising five acrylic, three artificial clay and four natural grass (available late spring, summer and early autumn). Three of the acrylic and all of the artificial clay courts are floodlit, with lights being available until 9:30pm each evening.

In addition to these 12 courts, HCC has an additional eight courts (three acrylic, three artificial grass and two artificial clay), with all these courts being floodlit until 9:30pm.

The Club also has a floodlit two court mini tennis zone and practice wall, located adjacent to the CLTC artificial courts.

All the CLTC and HCC courts are available to Club members, with both being easily accessed through either the main CLTC clubhouse or the HCC car park.


In preparation for wetter weather, we have recently put on each of the Club’s hard tennis courts brand new squeegees. Whilst squeegees will not dry the court, they are designed to brush off surface water, which will allow the courts to dry more readily (aided by temperature and wind etc).

To follow are some basic instructions which, if followed, will allow the squeegees to be most effective, as well as preventing them from being damaged:

The squeegees should be PUSHED and NOT PULLED, using only LIGHT PRESSURE.

The squeegees must be RETURNED TO THE COURT SIDE HANGERS after use.

If pulled, the squeegees will not perform to their best and the arms and rubber blades, which are responsible for pushing the water off court, could be damaged. If too much pressure is applied in use, the blades could become misshapen, which not only reduces their effectiveness, but also makes the rubber more prone to being ripped or torn when moving over small stones and debris.

If the squeegees are not returned to their hangers, the rubber blades are likely to bend, which will also reduce effectiveness, as well as making them significantly harder to push.

With the squeegees being new and the blades currently in perfect condition, please help us to maintain them by following the above simple steps.
