The grounds at TWLTC are maintained by our full-time groundsman, Kevin, who works hard all year to ensure that the grass, clay and hard courts are in optimum condition for tennis.

Our grass courts are ordinarily open between early May and mid-September and Kevin follows an annual tried and tested maintenance programme including autumn scarification, verti-draining, re-seeding and top-dressing. The preparation goes on all winter, with Kevin working flat out by April, putting the final touches to the courts. Our grass courts are assessed by the LTA each year who send us a report which we take into account when planning the maintenance for the following year.

Kevin also maintains the clay and hard courts and we bring in a specialist clay court maintenance company each autumn for their annual maintenance programme.
