Firstly, courts must be booked in advance by telephone, 48 hours before the planned session. The telephone will be manned between 09:00 and noon, and from 14:00 until 17:00, from Monday to Saturday. (+33 (0) 49341 7218.) In addition a form must be filled out, which can be sent by email (, or brought to Reception on the day of use.

Only one hour of play will be allowed per person, players must arrive no sooner than 10 minutes before play, and must touch only their own balls. No changing facilities or showers will be available. For further information, please consult the club’s website:
