It would be appreciated if you could wear the correct footwear when using our court.
The wrong shoe ruins the courts.
If you are unsure of your shoes please ask a committee member to help you.
Below are pictures of tennis shoes that are recommended for Clay Courts.
Note the flat sole and herringbone design.
It helps you to keep traction when running on the courts.
Here are some pictures of runners that ruin our courts:
These Chunky Sole runners ruin our Courts.
These shoes dig into the clay and bring up the ash ruining the court surface
Your co-operation would be greatly appreciated.

Other Suggested Equipment
More suggestions for equipment will be posted when available.
The most important one we feel due to the surface of our courts is the shoes.
Racquets suggestions all come down to some personal preferences.
We suggest you try a few or ask for help where you plan on getting your new racquet from.
The biggest thing with the racquet is you want it to be comfortable & easy to swing.
